Watch the Moment Protesters Storm Minneapolis Police Precinct, Setting Fires

After days of protesting and riots, protesters have gained access to the 3rd Precinct, redistributing police equipment and setting fires.

Protesters of all ages and races have spent hours chanting and calling for the arrests of Minneapolis police officers Derek Chauvin, Officer Tou Thao, Officer Thomas Lane, and Officer J. Alexander to be arrested over the murder of George Floyd.

But they have been met with tear gas, rubber bullets and mace over the course of the last three days.

On Thursday night, the protesters decided to take it one step further and took over the 3rd Precinct police building which is where the officers in question work.

A non-profit independent news organization called Unicorn Riot was the first to report on the breach by providing around the clock live streaming of the protest, even going inside the precinct where bullets began firing, apparently due to the fires that had been started.

Inside the precinct, protesters were recorded taking police equipment, setting fires, breaking windows and chanting Floyd’s name along with the phrases, “burn it down”, “lock them up”, and Floyd’s infamous last words “I can’t breathe.”

Unicorn Riot reporter Niko Georgiades said police evacuated the building and moved away from the building to protect downtown Minneapolis.

One of the protesters interviewed by Unicorn Riot was a former law enforcement officer. The protester did not give him name but said nothing has changed since the Rodney King beating. The former law enforcement said he also protested against the creation of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter and called the protesters “thugs” and threatened to send the military after them.

Also taking to Twitter was the Minnesota National Guard, who tweeted an hour after the precinct had been taking over, saying they are with the Minneapolis Fire Department ready to assist and have activated 500 members.

Both Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter requested for National Guard assistance, according to Fox9.

The National Guard arrived in the streets an hour after they took to Twitter

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
