Shootout In Minneapolis

Shootout In Minneapolis

Criminals apparently are getting a jump on the prospect of a cop-free Minneapolis. Last night, there was a “large gathering of people” on Hennepin Avenue just north of Lake Street. For reasons yet unknown, people within that crowd began shooting at one another. It sounds like a gang battle, but again, no details are yet known. Twelve people were shot, and at least one has died.

This took place in the heart of Uptown, an entertainment and shopping district, within a few blocks of some of the city’s most expensive neighborhoods, and within a block or two of the disorderly conduct a night or two earlier that we noted here.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

The problem is that out of the power vacuum will come an entrenched organized crime.

And with not police opposition, they will strike out at the burbs.

And any support they had goes right out the window. Everyone is a liberal until they get mugged.

I would hope it plays out like that, but I'm not gonna assume.

It's a good thing they took down that statue of Calvin Griffith. That ought to stop those shootings and killings immediately.  :whistle:

Just before I came here to the Briefing Room this afternoon, I was re-reading Thomas Chittum's "Civil War II".
My reading today was in the chapters focusing on urban gangs.

An excerpt:
===============
"When civil authority breaks down in America, our criminal gangs will instantly fill the power vacuum, just exactly as has been the pattern in other lands. The gangs have the organization and firepower to serve as the nucleus for actual armies. And since they will be self-financed in the coming time of chaos, they will grow like wildfire. Militias, cults like the Nation of Islam, and other armed organizations will also rapidly grow into full-blown armies."

We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

Not restricted to Minneapolis.

Watch this one in DC, another Democrat-controlled city.

And what does the mayor of DC say?  It is guns that cause the murders, not criminal behavior.

Ever think you would be arrested for NOT wearing a mask when entering a convenience store?

Darwinism at this point. Maybe the leftists and nogs will kill themselves off. Here's to hoping.
