MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) Gov. Tim Walz has signed an executive order activating the Minnesota National Guard to help protect Minnesotans safety and maintain peace in the wake of George Floyds death. The executive order also declares a peacetime emergency, activating the State Emergency Operations Center.
Protests in South Minneapolis turned violent and destructive Wednesday night near the Minneapolis Police Departments 3rd Precinct.
It is time to rebuild. Rebuild the city, rebuild our justice system, and rebuild the relationship between law enforcement and those theyre charged to protect. George Floyds death should lead to justice and systemic change, not more death and destruction. As George Floyds family has said, Floyd would not want people to get hurt. He lived his life protecting people. Lets come together to rebuild, remember, and seek justice for George Floyd, Walz said. As Governor, I will always defend the right to protest. It is how we express pain, process tragedy, and create change. That is why I am answering our local leaders request for Minnesota National Guard assistance to protect peaceful demonstrators, neighbors, and small businesses in Minnesota.

A few A-10 Pases are needed.
And to think this began and was organized by two college students on facebook.....
Haven’t been keeping up.
Have they set fire to the stores they have looted, yet?
the’ve trashed the place yes. I say just bring out the water canons. I’ve had enough.
Looking at the videos and listening to some of the rioters interviewed it appears to me these are not George Floyd protestors but rather Antifa and Black Lives Matter professional rioters using George Floyd as an excuse.
Just in time for the elections.
National Guard??...awesome...well, my viewing is set for the night.....
Some “woman of color” was just on the news saying that it was time to “shoot the white folk.” It was inevitable it would come to this. I’m afraid we are headed for a REAL hot summer.
A little early it seems.
Can they be out there in time? Earliest mention I saw was a 4:00pm tweet. Not much time.
If they start shooting white people on a large scale they will lose rapidly.
Will the MN-NG “practice social distancing”?
Same goes for the black kid who beat the crap out of a few elderly white people at a nursing home a few weeks ago. THIS WAS PRIOR TO THE FLOYD INCIDENT.
Maybe we're doing this all wrong?
Alrighty, then. I pray for your soul and the accuracy of my aim. Have a blessed day. :-)
