Armed Americans Protect Store Amid Minneapolis Rioting & Looting – Support Lawful Protests: “Before There Were Cops, There Were Just Americans – So Here We Are”

The protests in Minneapolis over the death by cop of George Floyd began peacefully for a call for justice for his murder.  However, it appears, as always, that provocateurs invaded the protests and what began as a peaceful protest has turned absolutely lawless, but that does not mean the protests are not valid.  However, amid the rioting and looting taking place in Minneapolis, several armed Minnesotans stood guard of a local Tobacco store and while they agreed with the protests, they did not support the looting and rioting.

Max Nesterak of the Minnesota Reformer provided video of some of the looting taking place.

He also interviewed the men who were standing guard.

The Blaze reports:

With two other armed men in the background, the pair said they had been moving around at protest points and found out that tobacco store workers were trying to defend the business from looting, so they came to “see if these guys need help” since “cops can’t get in here.”

One pointed to men with machetes standing next to the store’s front door; the other armed man said they were simply “protecting their own stuff.”

“I figure before there were cops, there were just Americans — so here we are,” one of the men said.

They also emphasized that they agree with the protests but not the looting.

“Bottom line: Justice for Floyd, and I hope they stop looting at some point,” one of the men said while the other added, “We definitely don’t agree with the looting though we do agree with the cause and the protest.”

One of the men also said “cops are a lot less likely to try to tread on people’s rights when there’s other armed Americans with them” and “it’s about damn time [that] heavily armed rednecks stood with fellow citizens.”

Just a note to Sean Hannity of Fox News, Notice that there is no violence and it is peaceful there.  Just thought Hannity might want to consider that in light of his unwarranted comments against open carry protesters in Michigan.

It’s good to see that there are people who still care about others and are willing to give of their time to protect them in the face of a violent mob.  It’s also good to see that they stand with the original protesters who simply were crying out for justice for the death of George Floyd.
