Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) on Thursday appeared to justify the riots in his city by claiming the anger shown was "not just because of five minutes of horror, but 400 years."
While making the statement, Frey also acted like he was crying:
From NBC News, "Minneapolis mayor says anger over George Floyd death 'not only understandable, it's right'":
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey choked back tears on Thursday and told protesters who were decrying the police-involved death of George Floyd that their anger was "not only understandable, it's right."I guess the big screen TVs we saw looted were a form of reparations?
Incidentally, NBC News failed to mention that firefighters were attacked on Wednesday night when they moved in to try and start putting out some of the 30 or so fires set by rioters.
A six-story, 190-unit $30 million affordable housing project under construction in Minneapolis was one of the buildings that was burned to the ground.
During the same press conference, Minneapolis City Council VP Andrea Jenkins called on colleagues "to declare a state of emergency declaring racism as a public health issue."
"Until we name this virus, this disease that has infected America for the past 400 years, we will never, ever resolve this issue," Jenkins said.
As I reported last night, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) put out a similar statement to Frey's, tweeting that "our anger is just" and "our anger is warranted."
