Over the weekend, a cop in a Minneapolis suburb shot and killed a black man. The rioting commenced immediately. This is from Alpha News, Minnesota's only based news outlet.
The suburb is Brooklyn Center, a former working class bedroom community in the first ring of suburbs--those directly bordering Minneapolis and St. Paul--that transitioned over the last 30 years into becoming an extension of the northside ghetto of Minneapolis due to blacks moving into the expansion of cheap housing there during the 80s and 90s. Where the rioting takes place is in the outlet area of what used to be the Brookdale Mall.
The feckless Democrat leadership in the Governor's Mansion continue to espouse the party line on such matters:
I am closely monitoring the situation in Brooklyn Center. Gwen and I are praying for Daunte Wright’s family as our state mourns another life of a Black man taken by law enforcement.

The trauma of yet another Black man dying at the hands of law enforcement weighs heavy on our state.

This is hardly the only violent interaction between a black suspect and Law Enforcement since last May. It's only because the suspect died violently during an arrest that this is being used to justify rioting, with the real target being the rest of the Twin Cities area. As I said, the Chauvin trial is fixed to acquit and those not yet clued in on this are trying to intimidate the jury with this rioting.
In other words, we just got a taste of what is about to go off across the Twin Cities next month or so when the verdict comes in. The rioting will be worse than last year, and that feckless fat fuck will call out the National Guard to occupy the Cities to put the rioting down or he's going to get yeeted from office by his enemies in the Legislature- and so will his Lt. Governor.
The exploitation of the childlike narcisism of the black community as a weapon to wield like a club against the rest of the state is absent from normie discourse here, as one would expect, but the failure of local media to so much as issue warnings to avoid the area--despite having personnel or working near there--shows that this is not just marching orders from above, but also Boomer-style head-in-the-sand denial of reality at work. I know that my General Practictioner and his peers working out of their office between my place and the rioting will have words to say, quietly, when I see them later this week for a regularly-schedule checkup.
And yes, if I didn't need to stay put for medical reasons, I'd already relocate outstate far from this mess. Rural Minnesota's strength and weakness lies in its distance from the lunacy of the state's cities.
