U. Minnesota-Minneapolis Increases Police Presence Following Violent Fireworks Attacks

Why are they bringing in more police and not social workers?

University of Minnesota-Minneapolis ramps up police presence after violent firework attacks

The University of Minnesota is ramping up weekend public safety measures at its Minneapolis campus after students were attacked with fireworks over Halloween weekend.

A total of four separate incidents were reported to Minneapolis police between Saturday evening and Sunday morning, Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) spokesperson Garrett Parten told Fox News Digital.

At least three teenaged females between the ages of 18 and 19 were injured in one firecracker incident on the 1600 block of University Avenue SE, Parten said.

The school sent out a public safety alert when the incidents occurred, according to Crime Watch, but it did not share any public statements about the attacks. UMN told Fox News Digital that the attacks occurred off-campus, and MPD is handling an investigation into the incidents.

MPD also continues to investigate the number of suspects involved. Parten said police received varying reports of “anywhere between” eight and 20 perpetrators.

Apparent video footage of the incident posted to Twitter shows a large group of people throwing a firework into a building.

Witnesses told CBS Minneapolis that a group of masked suspects ignited and threw the fireworks into fraternity house yards and the pizza restaurant near Dinkytown. One student, Kyle Garrigan, described the attack at Frank & Andrea’s Pizza on 4th Street as “kind of a sensory overload.”

I am confused; what’s the big deal?

Battalions of uniform-clad “activists” shot fireworks, including “firework mortars”, at targets for months, remaining “mostly peaceful” as this set only some buildings, cars, and people on fire.

— Fireworks aren’t a thing.
— Lighting stuff on fire isn’t a thing.
— Injuring people doing this isn’t a thing.

Also, the police are the problem, so they proclaimed. So, what’s the U M-M doing? *I* got the memo. Certainly they have, also.

I’m sorry; I forgot to ask: what were they protesting? Because this is how we protest now?

Related / Inspired question: How are people gearing up to ride out The Screaming-D’s violent reaction to Democracy not coming out their way?

When idiot college kids at some not famous school get their swerve on chucking fireworks at buildings, the culture-wranglers have captured the Zeitgeist. “This is how we do it, when we don’t get what we want.”

— They will seek to intimidate beforehand, and extract retribution afterwards. “Get in their faces.” “Hit back twice as hard.” have been their marching orders from the top, for years.

— They’ve been practicing.

— And their sentiment-wranglers have been riling it up, not least Dark Brandon’s call to expel those who aren’t really part of America.

It’s extortion

Not planning for it is as dumb as ignoring hurricanes in the corridor, or ice storms in the froze North where I’m at. You know it happens, because you’ve seen it happen. You got your meds? Some groceries? A fire extinguisher or two, just in case?

What’s the over / under on boarding up your windows: more protection, or more of a target? Makes you pine for the days of functional shutters.

Just pantifa practicing for when they use Molotov cocktails after the election.
