A shocking cell phone video has emerged from Minneapolis showing authorities ordering a group of women off their porch and shooting paint rounds at them when they don't comply quickly enough.
The video was recorded by Tanya Kerssen in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis and posted on Twitter.
The group of women was shown watching a small army of uniformed people thought to be members of the National Guard and the Minneapolis Police Department. The officers were allegedly enforcing the city's curfew due to riots and violence after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a member of the Minneapolis PD.
Even worse, the Minnesota Dept of Public Safety tried to cover for officers.
According to the curfew order by the governor of Minnesota, people were not allowed to be in public areas, including streets.
Last night, according to the city's "Frequently Asked Questions" about the curfew, the women were well within their rights to be outdoors on their porch. But the Minnesota Department of Public Safety quietly changed that answer after the video emerged.
