Self-identified Antifa members arrive in Twin Cities area as Brooklyn Center protests continue

Correspondent Mike Tobin Unido “El ángulo de Ingraham” to give the latest from the scene where throngs of protesters and law enforcement faced off following the reportedly accidental shooting death of Daunte Wright, 20, by now-resigned Officer Kimberly Potter.

Potter has said she meant to reach for her taser instead of her gun while involved in an altercation with Wright at his car.

Tobin, who was relocating to another part of the town at the time, spoke to Ingraham from inside a vehicle.

I can tell you this. The makeup of the population out here certainly changed tonight. I think Sunday night it was all about the locals that were here: They were genuine and angry,” él dijo.

As it goes on, you get more people coming in from out of town. I had several people that I spoke with who identified themselves as Antifaand angrily so. So you had that crowd out here.

We saw an increased number of kids ‘wearing the uniform’ Si tu quieres, the black hoodies, the backpacks. I saw leaf-blowers out there, different kinds ofmakeshift shields and things. It was changing dramatically in terms of the makeup, and certainly the numbers of the crowd.

Anfitrión Laura Ingraham agregó que, following some of the protest groups social media accounts, she read that they have been warning fellow activists that police were heard on radio scanners potentially planningmass arrestsof people engaged in unrest.

I guess it is ticking them off even more,” ella dijo. “So that is something that we should also take a look out for. Mirar, the mayor of St. Paul and the mayor of Minneapolis both said they would not tolerate looting and violence. They both made that clear despite what we saw last night and the night before.

“sí, they say they won’t tolerate looting and violence but there’s still looting and violence,” Tobin replied. “Then you had the [Brooklyn Center] Mayor Mike Elliott suggest, as you noted, that if there was a curfew and it to be enforcedit sounded like what he was saying you’re drawing a line in the sandand that it gives them something to defy and it creates a dynamic, él dijo, an excuse for more arrests.

In terms of gearing up for mass arrests, that’s what riot cops always do. Any time you see riot cops, you see the zip-strips with them.

While Tobin was speaking flashbangs could be heard being fired in attempt to disperse the crowd ahead of the 10 PM CDT curfew.

Ingraham dijo Minnesota authorities are likely stillon edgealmost a year after the George Floyd riots about a dozen miles down I-94 in Minneapolis. She noted that the protestersanti-police sentiment was explicitly apparent, given the presence of obscene graffiti like the abbreviation ACAB, o “All cops are the B-Word,” ella notó.

A lot of people blame President Trump’s attitude or tone, unfairly, Podría agregar, for this unrest. Can’t blame Trump now. You have Joe Biden in the White House. He called for calm the other day even though obviously we had Barack Obama today tweet out that what happened to Mr. Wright indicates that we need to reimagine policing in the United Stateswhich is what frankly a lot of far left activists are saying when they say reimagine policing, they’re saying abolish police forces,” el anfitrión dijo.
