Minneapolis Set To Close Schools In Anticipation For Riots

Protests and riots have been happening in major cities across the country over the last week in response to the deaths of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo. Since the news broke of Wright’s death last Sunday, things have been progressively getting worse.

Now the city of Minneapolis is preparing for even more riots next week.

On Friday night, Jack Posobiec said on Twitter that Minneapolis is closing all schools this upcoming Wednesday through Friday. The reason? The anticipation of the Derek Chauvin verdict, the police officer at the forefront of the death of George Floyd.

Here is part of what the announcement from the Minneapolis Public Schools system looks like. They will be closing schools and moving everything back to distance learning — they certainly have plenty of experience in that area, nowadays.

Our community is moving through an extraordinarily challenging time as we react to the killing of former MPS student Daunte Wright by a Brooklyn Center police officer, just as testimony in the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd concludes and the case goes to the jury.

We anticipate that a verdict in the Chauvin case could impact in-person learning in Minneapolis Public Schools. In order to give families as much time as possible to plan for changes in their daily routine we want to share the following information.

The announcement then goes on to list how in-person learning will be impacted by the trial, as well as other things.

For anyone hoping to see the riots and destruction end anytime soon, don’t hold your breath. This will more than likely continue for the foreseeable future.

  1. Chauvin will be found guilty. It won’t matter. None of this has ever been about George Floyd or anyone else. We now have a professional criminal class in America comprised of white liberals and marxist often ivy league educated “people of color”. What they can’t destroy themselves they get poor inner city kids to through lies and instigation.

  2. Nothing happens by accident in these big cities. Defund/ Demonize the police. The result over the last year; Murder and other violent crime up and arrests are down. Chauvin is likely to be found guilty as well as the officer from the Brooklyn Center incident. Nothing is ever enough. The police who work under this type of scrutiny will continue to do so without sticking their necks out. As so called “criminal justice reform” continues to evolve and communities become less safe, when is someone in authority going to ask: When are the criminals going to reform?

    • No one will ask that. It doesn’t fit the narrative. I posited this question earlier this week, when oh when will a black “leader” on the left speak out against resisting arrest? Nothing good ever happens from resisting arrest. The best case scenario is getting your ass beat, the worst, death. There is no escape by resisting. This is cultural now because every perp thinks the only reason they are pulled over is due to race and not them being a criminal. Further, all of these punks are giant pussies and are afraid to go to jail/prison. If you are going to play in the dirt be man/woman enough to do the time for your crimes.

  3. “Due to a bitch ass punk who couldn’t man up and go to jail on his outstanding warrant then resisted arrest and was killed as a result of that resistance we are closing schools. It is unfortunate that Duane Wright died, but students the lesson here is don’t resist police when being apprehended. The best thing that can happen is you get your ass beat, the worst you get shot and die. If you are going to be a criminal be man/woman enough to take your medicine if you get caught.” There I fixed the announcement.

  4. It will burn whether the cop is found guilty or not guilty.

    Sadly, the children in these schools, instead of having structure and support during the next week, will be sent home, another message in their young lives that they are simply pawns and victims in a world that is out of control.

  5. Something wrong with that state for a long time electing Jesse “The Body” Ventura governor and Al Franken senator and now all of this crazy stuff hard to understand what the citizens of that state are thinking just plain weird.

  6. I’ve lost sympathy for these blue states. This is literally what they want. If they didn’t want riots they would fight back. They won’t even let their police, you know, “police”.

  7. Where is Charles Bronson when you need him? He’d take out the rioters & looters…the things the police used to be able to do. So they want local law enforcement eliminated? Without the local police, armed vigilantes will likely fill the void. They won’t be as friendly to the anarchists as the cops. Not a path America want to go down, though armed vigilantes are already running rampant in our cities. They’re called gangs.
