St. Paul, Minnesota Mayor Melvin Carter said that all of the protesters who were arrested in his city the previous night were from out of state.
Carter said there were not a high number of arrests, but suggested out-of-staters are the ones fueling the agitation and violence.
“Because we had a relative stillness in St. Paul, we didn’t make an enormous number of arrests, but every single person we arrested last night, I’m told, was from out of state. What we are seeing right now is a group of people who are not from here,” Carter said at a press conference.
So it appears these protesters are being pumped into the cities to help destroy them. If you are out there protesting and not getting paid, you are actually being played.
Take a look at David Harris Jr's take on the situation:
It's not just big businesses that are being destroyed. A black man in Minneapolis had worked hard and saved money to start his own business, only for it to be destroyed by protesters and looters. Luckily he was able to stop them before they made away with his safe.
Korboi Balla is a black business owner and firefighter in Minneapolis who poured his life savings into starting a sports bar.
Rioters and looters burned it to the ground in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.
How does ruining his business help anyone? https://t.co/G519v7xp0H
