Not The Onion.
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo dispelled rumors on social media about the death of the unidentified Black man suspected in a Wednesday afternoon homicide who later fatally shot himself on the Nicollet Mall as officers approached. The incident, which was captured on city surveillance video and released by police within 90 minutes, nonetheless sparked protests and looting in the heart of downtown.
The video confirmed the police account of what happened and showed the man glancing over his shoulder before pulling out the gun and firing, then collapsing to the ground as a half-dozen witnesses ran away with their hands in the air, according to the Star Tribune. The officers, one of whom had his gun drawn, shooed a remaining witness away and kicked the suspect’s gun away before performing chest compressions.
Police released surveillance video that shows the man shooting himself and falling to the sidewalk just seconds before officers reached him. … A large crowd began to gather near the scene within the hour, and some began to break windows at nearby businesses.
Peacefully breaking windows.
Black lives matter so little to White Supremacist police officers that when a Black man commits murder and the police attempt to arrest him they won’t even stop him from shooting himself.
