    Did he? It's not clear where he is but he was taken into custody this morning, apparently by Minnesota State police. It's going to be interesting to see if protests continue tonight.

    I expect the protests will continue since most people wanted all 4 cops dealt with more harshly. But it's a start. Hopefully it's not just a cynical attempt to stop the protests and then they'll let him walk later.

    There's been a State of Emergency declared, an 8 PM curfew set, and the National Guard called in. That should be enough to at least cause a lull.

    St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter: "Every single person we arrested last night, I'm told, was from out of state."

    Replying to @NBCNews
    Minnesota Gov. Walz estimates that about 80% of those being destructive are from outside the state:

    "Our heart and our solidarity are with folks who understand what happened Monday night to George Floyd ... But these folks are not them."

    This is what I'm talking about. A bunch of white people destroying property while a black organizer (wait for it) PLEADS with them to stop.

    THIS IS NOT ALLYSHIP.

    So now, the attorney general, Bill Barr, is attempting to pin the anarchy and infiltration, which is already documented as coming from white nationalist groups, on "left leaning" ANTIFA groups. The goal is to force the media to repeat that. What is his proof?

    What I heard from Minnesota officials -- all of them -- was that white nationalist groups are planning online, to blend into the protests and stir chaos, "using the legitimate protesters as a human shield." What logical reason would LEFTwing groups have to burn black communities?



    Minnesota authorities have begun contact tracing arrestees from protests
    At a press conference on Saturday, Minnesota leaders said that the majority of those being destructive during the protests about George Floyd's death in the Twin Cities were from out of state, and that officials have begun contact tracing arrestees. Later, the US president Tweeted, "It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!"

    This is truly disturbing.

    I've started combing through the arrests.

    This guy, for example, may be from Alaska, but he was already in Minnesota at the time George Floyd was killed.


    And yes, he was stupid enough to post publicly on Facebook about his plans to use Molotov cocktails at the protest.

    Gov. Walz says there was a “sophisticated” denial-of-service attack on state computers last night. “That’s not someone sitting in their basement.”
