MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Pro-police demonstrations highlighting law enforcement’s vital role in society took place throughout Minneapolis Wednesday night as city police responded to stores being looted and burned as well as a deadly shooting at a law enforcement support demonstration. Video posted on social media, including Twitter, showed burning businesses and looters entering a local Target store and making their way out with bags full of items.
In a show of solidarity, police supporters in Los Angeles blocked traffic on Highway 101, clung to a California Highway Patrol cruiser and burned an American flag during a downtown demonstration Wednesday.
“We know police officers put their lives on the line every day to keep the public safe,” said one demonstrator, wearing a ski mask and brandishing a bat. “They really don’t get enough credit for what they do,” he added just before smashing a car windshield.
Another law enforcement activist, with several bags of Target merchandise slung over his shoulder, told Article 107 News, “Cops make 10 million arrests a year and we’re all out here tonight to show our support and remind folks what life would be like without them.”
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey has asked Gov. Tim Walz to send the National Guard to the city.
Demonstrators across the country say: “It’s time to end the Demonizing of Police”
