building on fire below is the 3rd precinct police station in south minneapolis. pic is from about 20 mins ago; UTD video shows it's gonna burn to the ground. no fire dept response due to the crowd. police withdrew.

That is insane.

There needs to be accountability with all of our police forces.  Not sure this is going to help but I do understand the frustration.

I see that the the cop who killed Floyd was arrested.  Why he wasn't arrested days ago is beyond me.  Now what are they going to do about the other 3 officers who did nothing to stop it?

All four of them are culpable in some form.

hennepin county attorney charged chauvin with murder and manslaughter. says his office is looking at charges for the other three as well but isn't ready to move on those yet. from his tone during the presser, seemed clear that something's on the way for them.

3rd degree murder. That's a max of 25, but probably a lot less.  I call BS.

3rd degree is "without intent"... fuck that.

I would like to see 2nd degree.  I think we will be lucky to get manslaughter.

Until there is consequence of this behavior this will not change.  There are many good cops doing a tough job out there.  But all cops should want this to stop and it won't until they as a group stop protecting cops that are out of control.

If you have 1,000 good cops, and you have 10 bad cops, but the 1,000 good cops don't do anything about the 10 bad cops, you have 1,010 bad cops.

I am not going to argue that point.  They are a large obstacle to address this issue.

Chauvin needs to have someone kneel on his neck for 9 minutes.

Well, assuming he goes to prison, at least there's the small consolation that he will be very unpopular there and probably live a very scared life.

Helicopters, sirens, smoke and firework noise or something similar. Cities closed the interstates at 7 and curfew started at 8 but itís getting louder.

Edit: my wifeís been in the basement watching tv with the kids and she can hear the helicopters from down there. Around a thousand people trying to cross the lake st to Marshall ave bridge from Minneapolis to Saint Paul which is about 4 blocks south of us. Just had a rush of vehicles down the street at the end of our block en route to the bridge. Probably wonít get much sleep tonight.

Police used tear gas, seems like they kept the crowd on the Minneapolis side of the river. A lot quieter now.

Barr says it's far left groups causing all the problems.  He makes me sick.  Worst Attorney General ever!
