Anyone watching Rachel interview the Minneapolis mayor? He's calling for

charging the officers, not just firing them. He's impressive. Lots of empathy. Supporting the protesters while begging for peace; stating how needed food, etc. is and asking them not to destroy what is needed for people in their community to survive the pandemic.

2. yes watched the interview....

he was very articulate....you could hear the sorrow and anger in his voice. As Don Lemon said the mayor is having to battle two viruses......COVID-19 and RACISM!

3. Mayor Frey discontinued a training based on "killology" in April of 2019.

"The Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) is officially banning "extracurricular" training programs reportedly aimed at bringing out a cop's inner warrior. The decision comes from the very top, with Mayor Jacob Frey announcing on Thursday that the city's officers are now prohibited from attending such "fear-based training".

The president of the police union, Bob Krull, defied the orders of Mayor Frey, by announcing free ‘Warrior’ training (killology) for officers who wanted to take it. Looks to me as though the police departments need to do a thorough study of the records of their officers, and act accordingly, starting with Bob Krull.

Edit: Bob Krull also attended and spoke at the tRump rally in Minnesota last October, and sold "cops support tRump" t shirts as a moneymaker for tRump. Enough said!

4. Target store is now on fire.

CNN reporter says that's the main food store in the area. Apparently this is a poorer part of the city.
