As much as I hate the expression, “Somebody has too much time on their hands,” it was made for this video.
There was this in Pennsylvania.
Younger Son sent this video of what was happening early Wednesday evening over by the 3rd precinct in Minneapolis.
As I watched his video, I asked him to please tell me that it was not him that took it. Sadly, it was him with his GoPro on his bike helmet. Happily, he did not get caught up in the violence. But he asked that we come pick up Percy this weekend so he only had to worry about keeping himself safe. He lives in southwest Minneapolis, roughly five miles from the rioting, which is centered about three miles southeast of downtown. However, it extended all the west along Lake Street to the Uptown area, which is definitely closer.
At 4:35 in the video he rides past a darkened area on the left with trees next to the sidewalk. That is a cemetery. At 5:17 he comes to the end of it, and there is a three-story building on the left. My knitting friend Anne lives in a condo in that building. I mave messaged her to be sure she was okay.
A friend passed on information about license and certification of law enforcement officers. Although the four officers involved in Floyd’s death were immediately fired and may be subject to criminal charges, the person who sent the information said that it was important that those officers lose their POST license and certification to ensure that they cannot work anywhere in law enforcement in the state.
