A police headquarters in Minneapolis is engulfed in flames after protesters breached the building and set it ablaze amid riots over a recent police killing. Officers fled the scene, having lost all control of the situation.

Less than an hour after the break-in at the 3rd police precinct late on Thursday night, flames had spread to nearly the whole building, with a crowd of demonstrators gathered outside celebrating as police staged a retreat. RT’s Sophia Narwitz reported live from the main protest area.

Twitter at war? Trump's warning to Minnesota ‘thugs’ flagged for ‘glorifying violence’
29 May, 2020 08:11

Twitter has claimed Donald Trump violated its rules by vowing a tough response to rioting in Minnesota. The social media platform flagged the tweet, saying it “glorified violence.”

The US president tweeted that he would take action if order was not restored to Minneapolis.

“We will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” Trump wrote, noting that the military could get involved.

Hours later, Twitter attached a notice to the post, stating that the tweet “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence.” The company said it would allow the message to stay up, however, because it “may be in the public’s interest.”

On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order aimed at social media platforms in an effort to crack down on alleged political bias and strip them of protection from litigation. The move came after Twitter “fact checked” one of his tweets about how vote-by-mail would lead to widespread fraud. Trump then claimed that the platform was trying to stifle free speech, with even some media outlets arguing that Twitter had overstepped its bounds. The company denounced the executive order as “a reactionary and politicized approach to a landmark law” protecting platforms from legal liability for content.

‘Don’t throw money at black Americans to riot’: Candace Owens spars with Soros-funded NGO over alleged hand in Minneapolis unrest
29 May, 2020 08:57

Conservative firebrand Candace Owens has started a feud with Open Society Foundations, after accusing the George Soros-funded NGO of fueling the ongoing riots in Minneapolis.

Owens speculated that the fires and looting in Minneapolis was being carried out by activists linked to the billionaire, after noting that Police Chief Medaria Arradondo claimed the criminal activity was being instigated by people not native to the city.

“My guess: As he did with Antifa, Democrat George Soros has these thugs on payroll. He is funding the chaos via his Open Society Foundation,” the conservative commentator tweeted.

The accusation clearly ruffled the NGO’s feathers, which fired back a retort insisting that they do not condone violence and “do not pay people to protest.” They also claimed that Owens was trying to “distract” from a case of “police brutality.”

Hi Candace, Mr. Soros and the Open Society Foundations oppose all violence and do not pay people to protest. We lament the effort, through baseless allegations, to distract from the crisis of police brutality in Minneapolis and in too many other parts of the country.

Unimpressed, Owens accused the group of “throwing money at black Americans to riot” and scolded the organization for spreading hate and dividing America.

“You got what you wanted in Minnesota. Your organization is a disgrace and Soros himself is absolute filth in my book,” read one of her scathing responses.

Please do not throw money at black Americans to riot and then have the nerve to think we are so stupid as to believe the money was given out of genuine caring.You got what you wanted in Minnesota. Your organization is a disgrace and Soros himself is absolute filth in my book.

Soros’ Open Society Foundations has indeed provided cash to activists linked with the Black Lives Matter movement – although the organization has long maintained that they “don’t fund protests, per se.”

Protests erupted in Minneapolis after a brutal police arrest reportedly led to the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd. Although initial demonstrations were largely peaceful, Minneapolis has seen two nights of rioting. During a press conference on Thursday, the city’s police chief said that “many of the people involved in the criminal conduct last night were not known Minneapolitans to them” and were “not recognized as being from the city.”

A police precinct headquarters was set ablaze on Thursday night, after law enforcement abandoned their position. The Minnesota National Guard has been deployed to the area, purportedly to assist the city’s fire department as they battle fires set by rioters. US President Donald Trump has warned that he could send in the military if order is not restored.
