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.
BREAKING: Minneapolis to close all public schools next Wed-Fri in anticipation of Derek Chauvin verdict

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.
