Senate Report Reveals Painful New Details about Minneapolis Riots
A new 61-page Senate report based on detailed testimony from public officials and law enforcement leaders reveals stunning new details about the Minneapolis riots.
Destruction and rioting were so intense that the only event Adjutant General Jon Jensen of the Minnesota National Guard could compare it to was his time in Iraq.
The riots and resulting damage caused to Minnesota was the second-most destructive period of local unrest in United States history, following the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
Over $500 million in property damage occurred during the riots.
City officials expect it to take at least 10 years to rebuild.
Prior to the fall of the Third Precinct, the last time a police precinct was surrendered was in 1863.
Minneapolis firefighters quit responding to arsons and only responded to medical emergencies because they were being attacked.
Approximately two dozen Minneapolis Police Officers and several firefighters were injured in the rioting.
Officers at the Third Precinct were so afraid for their lives that they had messages passed along to their families, thinking they would never see loved ones again. They believed their department left them to die.
Rioters threw skinned pig heads, bottles filled with cement, commercial grade fireworks, Molotov cocktails, and fired mortar rounds at officers.
Other cities offered aid, but the City of Minneapolis never accepted their assistance.
Governor Walz's administration was not fully using the Minnesota State Patrol or the Minnesota National Guard's aviation support which would have allowed them to know the rioters' positions.
The City of Minneapolis consistently requested more Minnesota National Guard troops than Governor Walz deployed.
Governor Walz allowed his adult daughter to access confidential information about the deployment of the Minnesota National Guard that she then disseminated to rioters.
Over 18 hours after receiving the verbal request and over 15 hours after receiving the written request, Governor Walz still had not decided if he wanted to mobilize the Minnesota National Guard.
Governor Walz and his administration chose to only arrest and prosecute 2% of those caught rioting.
The report also reveals that almost all of the violence and chaos could have been avoided if Gov. Walz had taken the threat seriously, allowed law enforcement to do their jobs, and decisively activated the Minnesota National Guard when Mayor Frey asked for help
What I would have expected when people elected activists and communists to a city and state political offices, comrade walz's daughter disseminated at a minium F.O.U.O. information to the enemy my question is where, when, and how she acquired this information and what the Minnesota National Guard is going to do about it.
All of the findings in this report come as absolutely no surprise.
Fantasy scenario I had: when the Nasty Gals got called out, their commander issued his men a standing order to round up the entire executive branch, as much of the legislature as they could get their hands on, Mayor Frey, the entire Mpls City Council, and the first two or three tiers of the MPD (Arradondo, those immediately beneath him in the dept, and those immediately beneath them), and place them under military arrest pending trial before a military tribunal for crimes against humanity.
At a minimum, it would keep them out of the way for the time being so the Guard could do what they needed to do to quell the riots. And if
