Donald Trump tweets. Twitter says whoa. CNN team arrested. US Constitution trashed.
The pain and anger in Minnesota worsens. Cops just arrested a non-white reporter for being non-white in retaliation against the black people who burned down the police station of the cop who killed a black man in custody.
Rather than threatening to shoot the protestors and calling them thugs, Trump should use his power to expedite bringing Derek Chauvin and the other three police officers to justice. If we are to be a country that follows the rule of law, those men can’t get away with murder.

Trump tweets a threat and CNN goes down. Just like that.
The 1st Amendment rights in the United States just went out the window.
American cops have been killing black men for years. Normally they get away with it. This week they are under a lot of pressure from the media which is voicing the words of the people. The people in Minnesota say they want justice. They and their Mayor publicly said they want the murderers arrested for committing murder. That seemed to make sense until the National Guard and State Police descended on the city after the people had gone home carrying jugs of milk and parcels of food they had looted from downtown stores before the burned down the police precinct building.
One might wonder of Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis, the authors of “Robin Hood’s” escapades might have seen the justice in the jugs of milk and bags of food.
The disastrously mismanaged COVID-19 epidemic in America has according to some scientists slaughtered as many as 200,000 Americans, mostly African American families.
Early in the week, an especially nice black man died in police custody while he was handcuffed, held down on the ground with a 200 pound police officer kneeling on his throat and neck for about eight minutes. Mr. George Floyd said he was dying and asked if he could see his mother before he died.
As it became clear that there would be no arrests in the matter, as happens usually, the community began taking to the streets.
In the past 24 hours, property damage in Minneapolis-St Paul and looting has taken place.
Today the police were told off by throngs of angry community members who coming out of many weeks of coronavirus lockdown, pushed into stores and “stole quarts of milk and food”, say reporters on the scene.
State law enforcement, angry with media coverage of events, and insulted by the public’s burning of the police precinct in Minneapolis just arrested a reporter who was asking “where do you want us to stand”. Three days earlier four of those cops killed a black man and none of the four were arrested.
Police arrested the non-white CNN reporter and ignored the CNN white reporter.
Racist @realDonaldTrump endorsed police brutality, asked for the killing of the #centralparkfive and called @Kaepernick7
a SOB for taking a knee to protest police brutality
Meanwhile @POTUS calls NAZIS “very nice people”#BlackLivesMatter #VoteBlue2020 https://t.co/neqQHzAIrI pic.twitter.com/HMrG9vA4QX

The Minnesota State governor has just apologised for the arrest and will try to cause the release of the journalists.
