It is absolutely astonishing to see the disastrous riots going on in Minneapolis right now.
It's not astonishing simply for the fact that they're doing it, I get it, but the magnitude of destruction that these people are doing to the city is unbelievable.
Look, I understand they're mad, outraged even and they have every right to be. Be mad. But destroying your own city is not going to help in the long run.
Let's say for example that someone killed one of you friends. Are you going to burn your own house down and steal from someone else? Of course not, that would be stupid and make zero sense. That's exactly what's going on now.
Take a look at this video of this video showing the aftermath from one full night of riots.

I'll be honest, when I first saw this video I really didn't even think it was Minneapolis. I thought it was video from some other country.
I've been watching live streams for a couple days now and have seen the buildings burnings an all, but this looks like Iraq after a big battle.
I told a friend of mine on Wednesday night that Minneapolis is going to be destroyed and I was 100% right.
The Mayor said that he was bringing in the National Guard now.
Mayor Jacob Frey issued a statement, “Please, Minneapolis, we cannot let tragedy beget more tragedy. The area along Lake has become unsafe. We are asking for your help in keeping the peace tonight.”
“He continued: “We appreciate those that protested peacefully but now is the time to go home. Obviously, we have both instances of violence and fires. There are institutions, grocery stores and markets around Lake, that our community relies on…especially in times of a pandemic.”
“Yes, we’re reeling. We are reeling, and I understand the anger and pain, and we need the public’s help in keeping the peace tonight. We need that in order to get through this together.”
“Frey said he has been in touch with the governor’s office and has requested assistance from the state. “We’ve spoken several times. We’re receiving assistance in the form of state patrol. I have requested the National Guard as well.”
