Leading up to the verdict of Derek Chauvin which was determined yesterday, riots had started taking place once again.
Now that he’s been found guilty, things will probably settle down…right? I highly doubt it.
One man in Minnesota was trying to get to his home in Stillwater, Minnesota to find that his street was blocked by a bunch of Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs.
The man got out of the car and was then pushed by the punks. After pushing back, the police showed up and took the man away in handcuffs and put him in the back of the police car.
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?!
How is it that innocent people are getting arrested for this stupid crap?

Some states are taking action against this sort of illegal activity be giving legal protections to people who are trying to escape from rioting.
We’ve seen numerous videos in which idiots block highways and get hurt or they end up hurting people trying to drive through. In some cases, the driver was charged with wrongdoing when they drive through a crowd of people assaulting them.
“We actually saw this happen here in Oklahoma last year when a Tulsa family was surrounded by rioters. Through no fault of their own, they were caught in a dangerous situation, and fearing for their lives, they were attempting to get away,” Oklahoma Senator Rob Standridge said. “The prosecutor declined to file charges, but that may not always be the case. This bill will protect innocent people trapped by a rioting mob.”
The bill protects a driver who “unintentionally causes injury or death” while fleeing a riot.
The bill also penalizes individuals who “unlawfully obstruct” approaching vehicles from using a public street, highway or road or endangering vehicles’ or pedestrians’ safe movement. Penalties include a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in county jail and/or a fine ranging from $100 to $5,000, as well as liability for damage to person or property.
“This bill adds to language in existing law regarding riots and is directly in line with the Tulsa district attorney’s decision over the summer that protected a motorist fleeing a riot,” West said. “This is an important protection for citizens who are just trying to get out of a bad situation. When fleeing an unlawful riot, they should not face threat of prosecution for trying to protect themselves, their families or their property.”
When I was growing up, I was taught not to play in the street, because I might get hit by a car. I guess derelict parents don’t teach that anymore.
