MINNEAPOLIS (LEARFIELD) – An angry crowd broke into the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct headquarters Thursday night and set fire to the building, capping another day of protests, many of them violent, across the Twin Cities.
“There is a lot of pain and anger right now in our city,” said Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. “I understand that, our entire city recognizes that. What we have seen over the past several hours and the past several nights is unacceptable.”
The police station on E. Lake Street has been the epicenter of protests this week for people demanding justice after the death of George Floyd.
Frey also spoke on tweets that President Donald Trump posted earlier on in which he called Frey a “very weak Radical Left Mayor” and said he would send the National Guard in to “get the job done right.
