City of Minneapolis commends heavily armed group of black 'Freedom Fighters' who've been patrolling streets 'protecting businesses, protesters and black heritage' since death of George Floyd​

  • The Minnesota Freedom Fighters formed in late May in response to the unrest in Minneapolis following George Floyd's death
  • About two dozen black men answered a call from the NAACP to help protect businesses from violence, fire and looting
  • They patrolled with AR-15s and Glocks and wearing tactical vests and bandannas
  • The group has continued to patrol in the community and protect protesters
  • Their presence has been welcomed by city officials who say they are 'important' and 'commendable'
An armed group of black men who began patrolling Minneapolis during the unrest in the wake of George Floyd's death have been praised by city officials.

The Minnesota Freedom Fighters was formed in late May after the NAACP chapter in the city's north, predominantly black, neighborhood put out a call for residents to help protect small businesses from violence, fires and looting.

A group of about two dozen men gathered and have patrolled the streets since, carrying AR-15s and Glocks and wearing tactical vests and bandannas.

They have been welcomed by the city, who called their actions 'commendable'.

OH, FREEDOM FIGHTERS! Is that what it is? And which tyrant/autocrat/oppressor are they looking for during their patrols? In Minisoda of all places. Last time shit with an armed group went down in that state, it was the Wolverines mullisha. Everybody, including national TV was wearing their shittin' pants, the Female Body Inspectors (aka FBI) got involved, and everybody was crying about how dangerous these people were. Now, when it's black guys doing it, they get commended and applauded. I'm sure there's no double standard there.
Geez, can we just start the shooting already?

Article is from last September (aka peak of Mpls city council moon-battery).

Any more recent updates? The community in Mpls typically takes a seasonal (December-March) break from street antics.

wait, why does the one white guy in the group get ZERO recognition?

One of the photos guy sure looks white and maybe even a little ginger haired?
