Eagles’ DeSean Jackson thinks NFL should mic up players if fans cannot attend games

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson had an idea to give fans a treat at home if they cannot get to the stadium this season because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Jackson said Friday on his teammate Lane Johnson’s “Outside the Lane” YouTube show the NFL should consider putting a mic on players on the field as opposed to broadcasts pumping in artificial crowd noise.

“It’s going to get crazy, I think they should, though,” the veteran wide receiver said. “They should give the fans the inside to really see what goes on between the white lines. It gets crazy, bro. I know in the trenches it gets crazy, and I know out there on the outside it gets crazy too with the conversations we going back and forth on.”

The NFL plans to start the season on time but has not addressed whether there will be fans in the stadiums.

The Miami Dolphins is one of the teams who has made contingency plans should fans be allowed into Hard Rock Stadium this season.

Dolphins CEO and President Tom Garfinkel revealed the plans on ABC’s “Good Morning America” last month. The mock-ups showed different colored spots around Hard Rock Stadium to designate how far apart fans would need to be away from each other as they enter the stadium.

“We would have times to come in for security at different gates so people would be separated out, in terms of when they enter the stadium,” Garfinkel said. “We would exit the stadium much like a church environment, where each row exits so people aren’t filing out all at the same time in a herd.”

Part of the plan, Garfinkel said, would have fans all wearing masks and order food from their seats. Instead of waiting in line for their food and drinks, they would go upstairs when their orders are ready.

Garfinkel said the plans were not yet finalized.

“When our fans, players and staff are able to return to Hard Rock Stadium, we want them to have peace of mind that we’re doing everything we can to create the safest and healthiest environment possible,” Garfinkel said. “We didn’t want to create our own standard, we wanted to be accountable to the most credible third-party standard that exists.”

Hard Rock Stadium, which was the host site for Super Bowl LIV, can hold 65,000 fans during a single game.

George Floyd’s brother criticizes violent protesters: ‘Don’t tear up your town’

The younger brother of George Floyd is calling for the end of violent protests and riots that have escalated in the U.S. over the past week, according to a report on Sunday.

Terrence Floyd told ABC News he wants justice handed to the officers responsible for his brother’s death, but as violent demonstrations are currently wreaking havoc in many cities across the country, he feels they are not what his sibling would have wanted.

“[S]ometimes I get angry, I want to bust some heads, too,” Terrence Floyd said. “I wanna … just go crazy. But I’m here. My brother wasn’t about that. My brother was about peace. You’ll hear a lot of people say he was a gentle giant.”

SECRET SERVICE AGENTS WOUNDED OUTSIDE WHITE HOUSE, CAR BOMBS FEARED, OFFICIAL SAYS TRUMP WAS TAKEN TO BUNKER

George Floyd, 46, died Monday night and video later emerged showing him on the ground with a police officer pressing his knee against his neck. Footage released of the incident showed Floyd shouting, “I cannot breathe” and “Don’t kill me.”

The officer responsible, Derek Chauvin, was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in his death.

The incident originally sparked peaceful protests, but many have turned violent amid clashes between demonstrators and law enforcement. Curfews have been implemented in cities throughout the U.S, with the National Guard being called in amid fires, vandalism, and looting.

“Don’t tear up your town, all of this is not necessary because if his own family and blood is not doing it, then why are you?” Terrence Floyd told the news organization. “If his own family and blood are trying to deal with it and be positive about it, and go another route to seek justice, then why are you out here tearing up your community? Because when you’re finished and turn around and want to go buy something, you done tore it up. So now you messed up your own living arrangements. So just relax. Justice will be served.”

He added that his brother was known in the community for his positivity and he wants him to be remembered that way, not for the violence stemming from his brother’s tragic death in the hands of police custody. Even after the death of his sibling, Floyd took the high road amid reignited tensions between police and the black community.

“Do something positive. Stop making excuses,” Terrence Floyd told ABC News. “And that’s what I feel is going on: They’re using this as an excuse to be stupid.”

Health officials worry about second coronavirus wave after George Floyd

Health officials in the U.S. have new concerns that the nationwide protests over the George Floyd death in police custody could spark a wider spread of the coronavirus after many cities reported bringing the virus under control.

CLICK FOR THE LATEST ON THE CORONAVIRUS

Scott Gottlieb, the former Food and Drug Administration commissioner, told CBS News’ “Face the Nation” that there are still some “pockets of spread” in communities. He said there has been an uptick in new coronavirus cases in recent days at the epicenter of the protests.

Minnesota Health Department Spokesman Doug Schultz said Sunday that any spike from the protests will not be seen until six to 10 days after its transmission, the Star Tribune reported. The report pointed out that the Minneapolis provided hundreds of masks for protesters.

Gov. Tim Walz said, according to the paper, that he is “deeply concerned about a super-spreader type of incident … after this. We are going to see a spike in COVID-19. It’s inevitable.”

The U.S. has seen more than 1.7 million infections and over 104,000 deaths in the pandemic, which has disproportionately affected racial minorities. Protests over Floyd’s death have shaken the U.S. from New York to Los Angeles.

PROTESTS BREAK OUT OUTSIDE WH

“There’s no question that when you put hundreds or thousands of people together in close proximity, when we have got this virus all over the streets … it’s not healthy,” Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Demonstrators are packed, many without masks, many chanting, shouting or singing. The virus is dispersed by microscopic droplets in the air when people cough, sneeze, talk or sing.

Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University, told the New York Times that the “outdoor air dilutes the virus and reduces the infectious dose that might be out there, and if there are breezes blowing, that further dilutes the virus in the air. There was literally a lot of running around, which means they’re exhaling more profoundly, but also passing each other very quickly.”

Despite much of the protest and riots taking place outdoors, looters ransacked stores in various cities. The virus is notoriously transmitted by asymptomatic carriers. The Times reported that Keisha Lance Bottoms, the mayor of Atlanta, told those out protesting to “go get a COVID test this week.”

Juan Williams: Protests are a build up of coronavirus tensions and ‘incredible wave’ of abuse by police

The national outrage sparked by the death of George Floyd is complex and multifaceted, “The Five” co-host Juan Williams said Sunday, outlining the “three levels” of frustration felt by protesters around the country.

“I think clearly there is a great deal of frustration but I would say there are three levels to it,” Williams told Fox News’ Bret Baier Sunday evening.

“I think that you can’t ignore what the country has been going through with the virus, so many people have been pent up, told to shelter in place.

“Secondly,” Williams continued, the economic toll that the coronavirus pandemic has taken on “the poor working-class people in this country and lots of young people…” has been profound, and the protests represent their “frustration,” he explained.

“And then finally, the incredible wave of abuse by the police,” Williams said.

Once-peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd devolved into chaos during the weekend, resulting in multiple deaths, dozens of injuries and the destruction of buildings and businesses.

Williams said the reaction is a build-up of multiple factors, primarily the generations-old racial injustice plaguing the country specifically with regard to the police.

“I think lots of people think it just seems like this is a system that has yet to deal with black people as citizens, not just those to be feared more than others,” he explained, “and so there’s lots of anger and frustration over the fact that this has been going on for generations.”

NHL plans to test players for COVID-19 daily if games resume

Nick Foligno watches Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s coronavirus briefings and appreciates the value of the information.

It is part of the reason the Columbus captain supports NHL players undergoing daily testing if the season resumes.

“Testing is a must because it’s the only way you’re going to know and feel confident every time you step on the ice that everyone is in the same boat as you and you can play the game to the best of your ability,” Foligno said.

The first major North American professional sports league to announce a format for its potential return to competition also has a comprehensive COVID-19 testing strategy. There are screening protocols in place for voluntary workouts and training camp in the hands of individual teams. Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly also said the NHL plans to test all players every day when games start happening.

“We will have a rigorous daily testing protocol where players are tested every evening and those results are obtained before they would leave their hotel rooms the next morning, so we’ll know if we have a positive test and whether the player has to self-quarantine himself as a result of that positive test,” Daly said. “It’s expensive, but we think it’s really a foundational element of what we’re trying to accomplish.”

Each test costs approximately $125, the league says, and Commissioner Gary Bettman estimated 25,000-35,000 will be needed to get through the playoffs — a price tag, he concedes, of “millions of dollars.” But athletes have plenty of concerns about risking their health to get back to work, and regular testing is something players insisted on.

“You need testing at a level sufficient to be confident that you’re going to be on top of anything which might happen,” NHL Players’ Association executive director Don Fehr said. “If that turns out to be daily, and that’s available, that’s OK. That would be good. If it turns out that that’s not quite what we need and we can get by with a little less, that’s OK.”

Infectious disease expert Dr. Amesh Adalja of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security isn’t quite sure how often athletes should be tested to ensure they are virus-free. He said testing in German soccer will help other leagues determine the right frequency, which also depends on the type of quarantine and exposure risks players will have.

“We do know that people that have increased contact with each other are going to have more opportunity to spread the virus, and hockey is one of the sports where individuals do have a lot of contact with each other,” Adalja said. “I would say that they’re going to have to be more aggressive than other leagues in terms of testing.”

While players vary on their general concern about contracting the virus by resuming the season, many seem to be on board with frequent testing.

“Having it each and every day begins to limit the potential of getting the virus,” Edmonton player representative Darnell Nurse said. “If that’s what it takes, that’s what the professionals who are in this field and tackle these challenges each and every day, if that’s what they believe is the best option, then that’s the way you have to go.”

Teammate Connor McDavid and Toronto captain John Tavares, who are members of the NHL/NHLPA Return to Play committee, deferred to experts on how often players should be tested. McDavid added, “I think you have to get tested in a time like this, and you want to get tested as frequently as you can to catch it right away.”

Daly said one person testing positive for the coronavirus would not necessarily mean another pause for the NHL. Leaguewide testing done daily would allow the isolation of an infected player, coach or staff member before the start of an outbreak.

“If one guy tests positive, I see it as unlikely that other guys don’t test positive, but in assessing everybody I have to believe that they’ll probably find it,” Montreal player rep Paul Byron said. “What would happen if half your team or four or five or six guys test positive at one time?”

League and team officials have stressed they would only use thousands of tests if that number does not endanger the supply for the general public, a concern Adalja broached for all sports. Bettman said medical experts told the NHL that by the time games could resume this summer, 25,000-30,000 would be “a relatively insignificant number.”

Adalja said a league partnering with a national chain for testing could keep it from interfering with the public supply, though it is difficult to predict what availability will be like in late summer. He also said the cost and availability depends on whether the NHL would use more expensive but more reliable PCR tests — the nose swabs — or rapid antigen tests that can have less sensitivity.

Protocols for voluntary workouts and training camps require PCR testing where available, and Daly said the NHL continues to study the potential use of antigen testing.

Part of the decision on which cities host games is the amount of COVID-19 present in the community. Bettman hopes the combination of going to a place with less of it, testing frequently, and putting players in a quarantine “bubble” of sorts means it’s less likely for anyone to contract it.

The players putting faith in the league to keep them healthy hope that turns out to be correct.

“Staying on top of everyone is going to be a good challenge for our training staff, and the onus on the players in making sure everyone’s safe,” Carolina captain Jordan Staal said. “It’s going to be different. It’s going to be some interesting hurdles but hopefully, if we get back on the ice, I’m sure the guys will find a way to jump through them.”

Marsha Blackburn warns George Floyd rioters trying to ‘burn down America’: Expect FBI to ‘knock on your door’

Westlake Legal Group image Marsha Blackburn warns George Floyd rioters trying to 'burn down America': Expect FBI to 'knock on your door' Yael Halon fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/shows/americas-news-hq-weekend fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/person/george-floyd fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/media fnc b5835f41-ee08-5950-9fbf-e13fefc1e33d article

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., warned the organizers and people taking part in riots across the country to expect a “knock on your door from the FBI” after once-peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd devolved into chaos during the weekend, resulting in multiple deaths, dozens of injuries and the destruction of buildings and businesses.

“The Department of Justice, your state bureaus of investigation, they’re going to figure out who is behind all of this,” Blackburn vowed on “America’s News HQ.”

“These people tried to go out the last couple of nights and burn down America, and I will tell you, law enforcement is going to figure out who organized it, who has put this money behind it to give these Antifa members what they need,” she continued.

“These people tried to go out the last couple of nights and burn down America, and I will tell you, law enforcement is going to figure out who organized it.”

— Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.

The national unrest was sparked by the May 25 death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis officer, Derek Chauvin, was seen kneeling on his neck in a viral video. Crowds across the nation have seized on the racially charged incident to demand justice, but the protests have turned increasingly violent, culminating in a weekend of carnage.

Tennessee was among the many states who activated the National Guard over the weekend, as California, Georgia, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Washington state also called for such assistance while protests spiraled out of control.

Doubling down in her warning to violent protestors, Blackburn said, “If you’ve been on social media and you’ve been saying ‘I know friends that went to the protest, I know friends that went to the riots,’ you’re probably going to get a knock on your door from the FBI or, in Tennessee, the [Tennessee Bureau of Investigation], and they’re going to want to know what you know,” the lawmaker warned.

WHAT IS ANTIFA, THE FAR LEFT GROUP TIED TO VIOLENT PROTESTING?

Blackburn said while she found peaceful protest “appropriate,” the violence and dangerous riots that have erupted were “no way to honor the memory of George Floyd.”

TRUMP WANTS TO DESIGNATE ANTIFA A DOMESTIC TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AFTER VIOLENT PROTESTS OVER FLOYD DEATH

Later invoking a term most closely associated with the coronavirus pandemic, Blackburn said officials would employ the “contact tracing” method to track down those responsible for inciting “civil unrest” and hold them accountable.

“There’s been a lot said about contact tracing to do with coronavirus,” she said, “and contact tracers being hired. Let me tell you something — that is nothing compared to the contact tracing that is going to take place with all of these riots.”

Attorney General William Barr said Sunday that the Justice Department will treat violence from people associated with Antifa as domestic terrorism and asserted that protests against police brutality and racial inequality following Floyd’s death have “been hijacked.”

Prince William wears many hats: Father, son, grandson, brother, prince and now, teacher.

With the spread of coronavirus causing schools around the globe to shut down, even members of royalty have faced the routine of online learning, relying on their parents when they need extra help.

The coronavirus lockdown is seemingly down and out, as many Democrats in charge of big cities — including several who once insisted on strict quarantine measures — line up to champion the nationwide mass demonstrations over the in-custody death of George Floyd, sans social distancing.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo lashed out at protesters calling to reopen the state earlier this month, saying at a news conference, “you have no right to jeopardize my health … and my children’s health and your children’s health.” Cuomo’s directives have been enforced throughout the state: A New York City tanning salon owner told Fox News he was fined $1,000 for reopening briefly last week, calling the situation “insane” and saying he already was “broke.”

On Friday, though, Cuomo said he “stands” with those defying stay-at-home orders: “Nobody is sanctioning the arson, and the thuggery and the burglaries, but the protesters and the anger and the fear and the frustration? Yes. Yes, and the demand is for justice.”

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, meanwhile, had warned that in-person worship services would be a “public-health disaster,” disregarding constituents’ concerns that he was violating their First Amendment rights. Now, his administration has been distributing masks to rioters, even though public gatherings of 10 or more are still ostensibly banned.

NY SCRUBS CUOMO NURSING HOME ORDER LINKED TO CORONAVIRUS DEATHS

“The city encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” a news release read. “The city has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”

The mayor of Washington D.C., Muriel Bowser, vowed $5,000 fines or 90 days in jail for anyone violating stay-at-home orders. This weekend, though, Bowser defended the protests: “We are grieving hundreds of years of institutional racism. … People are tired, sad, angry and desperate for change.”

And, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti threatened in March to cut power and water for businesses that reopened, saying he wanted to punish “irresponsible and selfish” behavior. In recent days, he has encouraged mass gatherings, even as he condemned violence. “I will always protect Angelenos’ right to make their voices heard — and we can lead the movement against racism without fear of violence or vandalism,” he said.

These officials were just some of the most prominent politicans to have adopted strikingly different rhetoric on mass gatherings over Floyd’s death, including several protests that have triggered property damage, injuries and several deaths. The mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, has been one of the few politicians to keep up her coronavirus admonitions. “If you were out protesting last night, you probably need to go get a COVID test this week,” she told CNN on Sunday. “There is still a pandemic in America that’s killing black and brown people at higher numbers.”

Although some Democrats, including Garcetti, have since welcomed the support of the National Guard to quell the demonstrations, they explicitly noted they were doing so to combat “destruction” and “vandalism” — not widespread defiance of stay-at-home orders.

TRUMP TO DESIGNATE FAR-LEFT GROUP ANTIFA A ‘TERRORIST ORGANIZATION’

Four officers have been charged in the Floyd case, and one has been arrested. A video showed the arrested officer kneeling on Floyd for several minutes as he screamed that he could not breathe, although an initial medical examiner’s report found “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation” — and cited Floyd’s “underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease,” as well as the “potential intoxicants” in his system.

“Democratic elected officials have now all-but destroyed any remaining political deference in terms of policies needed to enforce social distancing, limit crowd size and the like,” journalist Michael Tracey said.

He pointed to statistics from The Washington Post showing that a total of 41 unarmed people were shot and killed by U.S. police in 2019 — 19 of them white, nine black and nine Hispanic. Others noted that the “Grim Reaper” who patrolled Florida’s beaches to shame swimmers and sunbathers amid the pandemic was nowhere to be seen at the protests.

“WE LITERALLY STAYED IN OUR HOUSES FOR A MONTH BECAUSE OF FEAR OF A VIRUS WITH A 99.74% SURVIVAL RATE AND NOW ARE SUPPOSED TO IGNORE NATIONAL COP-KILLING RIOTS?!!” Kentucky State political science professor Wilfred Reilly tweeted. “SERIOUS question, as re these riots – where are all these Governors that gave daily three hour press conferences about whether you could walk down the beach or visit your dying relatives? Is the COVID-19 crisis over?”

Reilly added: “The way you create a narrative is to isolate and publicize every incident of the phenomenon you’re focused on. Black: white/inter-racial violent crime is 5% of crime (600K cases/12M crimes), and 80% of THAT is Black on white. Wouldn’t think that from the papers, wouldja?”

Scattered efforts by the Democrats to condemn some of the protesters have relied on inaccurate information. For example, Frey said Saturday that officials thought “white supremacists” and “out-of-state instigators” could be behind the protests in the wake of Floyd’s death, and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz also claimed most of the protesters arrested were from outside Minneapolis and sought to take advantage of the chaos.

“We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region,” Frey had tweeted Saturday.

However, a report by KARE 11 showed “about 86 percent” of the 36 arrests listed their address in Minnesota, and that they live in Minneapolis or the metro area, according to data the outlet analyzed from the Hennepin County Jail’s roster. Five out-of-state cases came from Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Michigan and Missouri.

DC CONVENTION CENTER HASN’T TREATED A SINGLE CORONAVIRUS PATIENT, DESPITE DOOMSDAY PREDICTIONS

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter later admitted he was wrong when he falsely claimed that “every person” arrested in Minneapolis protests was from out of state.

On Sunday, White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien disputed reports that far-right and white supremacist groups were involved in stoking the violence.

“I haven’t seen reports of far-right groups,” O’Brien said in an interview Sunday morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “This is being driven by Antifa.” Later Sunday, Trump announced he would designate Antifa a terrorist organization.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon.

“It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump had tweeted Saturday.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was less decisive in stating who was behind the looting, arson, and violence that has taken place. While he called rioters “Antifa-like” during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” he said, “I think it still remains to be seen exactly how” the situation devolved from peaceful protests to something entirely different.

Atlanta’s mayor is worried about George Floyd protests in her city fueling the spread of the coronavirus.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a Democrat, urged protesters to get tested for the virus.

“If you were out protesting last night, you probably need to go get a COVID test this week,” she said Saturday at a news conference. “There is still a pandemic in America that’s killing black and brown people at higher numbers.”

A similar call was being heard in New York City.

Dr. Theodore Long, who is leading New York City’s contact tracing efforts with its public hospitals agency, urged anyone who had been involved in the demonstrations to get tested for the virus and to protect themselves while out, according to The New York Times.

“We strongly encourage anybody who is out in the protests to wear a mask, practice proper hand hygiene and to the extent possible, socially distance, though we know that’s not always going to be feasible,” Dr. Long said, according to the paper.

Bottoms signed an executive order extending a curfew for the city. The new curfew will begin at 9 p.m. Sunday and end at Monday at sunrise, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

Violent protests across the U.S., some of which have turned into riots amidst a pandemic, and the relaxing of lockdowns have health officials worried about new coronavirus infections. The virus has killed more than 100,000 people in the U.S.

Health experts fear that silent carriers of the virus could unwittingly infect others at protests where people are packed cheek to jowl, many without masks, many chanting, singing or shouting. The virus is dispersed by microscopic droplets in the air when people cough, sneeze, sing or talk.

“Whether they’re fired up or not, that doesn’t prevent them from getting the virus,” said Bradley Pollock, chairman of the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of California, Davis.

Minnesota’s governor and the mayors of the Twin Cities pledged their support to fight against the “systemic racism” that they said led to the death of George Floyd after another night of violent rioting in Minneapolis and other metropolitan areas around the country.

Gov. Tim Walz thanked those who obeyed the nighttime curfew to give law enforcement the space to restore order without further loss of life, saying, “the gift they have given us, is that the sun came up this morning to open up the space for the real conversation. A real understanding that George Floyd was dead and the conditions here, in Minnesota, contributed to that.”

“It does fall to myself, other elected leaders, community leaders and others that if we do not get to that systemic problem, eventually this will get us back to a point that led to our communities on fire, our security and safety in question and a searching of who we are,” Waltz said.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, a Democrat, vowed to fight “systemic racism” that lead to the death of George Floyd in a press conference Sunday. 

The city’s curfew was from 8 p.m. Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday, and several freeways were to remain closed to all but emergency responders and law enforcement to keep protesters from coming into the Minneapolis metropolitan area from out of town.

“Law enforcement made several arrests and seized weapons, narcotics, long guns, handguns, magazines and knives,” Walz said.”We have reason to believe that bad actors continue to infiltrate the rightful protests of George Floyd’s murder, which is why we are extending the curfew by one day.”

St. Paul, Minn., Mayor Melvin Carter said he was not encouraging people to be patient or passive in their fight for justice, but urged the public to channel what he called their “nuclear energy” into not destroying neighborhoods.

“[But] to destroy the historic culture, to destroy the systemic racism, to destroy, in specifics where this is concerned, the laws, legal precedents, police union contracts, all of the things that make it so difficult to hold someone accountable when a life, like George Floyd’s, is so wrongfully taken,” he continued.

“We can either channel this energy into destroying our own communities, toward burning and looting our barbershops, our restaurants, our family-owned businesses. The lives and livelihoods that have gone into all those institutions. Or we can take this energy and channel it into building a better future,” Carter said.

“We know that right now is a moment of deep soul searching for our community and for our nation. Right now we ought to be focused on the fact that George Floyd ought to still be alive today,” he continued. “We ought to be focused on the fact that when someone takes one of our lives in such dramatic and gruesome fashion, especially when it’s as well documented as George Floyd’s murder was, that we ought to have some ability to be confident, to be sure that the people will be held responsible.

“Not just one — but the four people who were responsible for his death, in a democracy as great as ours, that the four people responsible for his death will of course be held to account,” Carter said.

After recent speculation over whether rioters were Minneapolis locals or were part of an organized group who had come from out of town in incite violence, Carter said: “The one thing that’s absolutely clear to me is that those folks who would seek to act in a way that during a pandemic, would deprive our senior citizens of the local pharmacy they need to go to to get their life-saving medicine, who in the midst of a food shortage, would deprive our families of the grocery stores they need to go to to feed their children…

“Who would deprive, in the middle of one of the worst economic crises in our country’s history, our workers from the opportunity to go to work and to earn a living and to participate in our economy, the one thing that is clear to me is that those folks are not driven, those actions are not driven by a sense of deep drive for the betterment of our community,” the mayor said.

“Today we’re asking our community for peace, but I want to be very clear we’re not asking you for patience. And we are not asking you for pacifism,” Carter continued. “I am not asking you to sit to the side and patiently wait as we slowly and incrementally stem the bloody tide of African-American men killed by law enforcement.”

Waltz said Minnesota for years has been ranked among the best U.S. states to live in — unless you are black.

“All those statistics, if you peel it back, are true if you’re white. If you’re not, we rank near the bottom. Which this week has shown all of us that those two things can’t operate at the same place. You cannot continue to say, Minnesota is a great place to live if your neighbor,because of the color of their skin, does not have that same opportunity,” the governor said.

He also commended Lt. Gov. Flanagan, who recently spoke on race issues “in her elegant words as an indigenous woman who understands what that means,” Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was “on the streets begging people to come home,” and rapper and music mogul Jay-Z, who called the governor last night “not as an international performer, but a dad stressing to me that justice needs to be served,” for trusting him to listen to what they were saying and work toward change.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said the city was “sandwiched” between two realities: the thousands seen yesterday in a peaceful rally with members of the Native American community, singing and dancing in protest, and the people who woke up Sunday morning and came out of their homes to help clean up businesses destroyed by rioting.

“We are going to keep working to strive to make sure the Twin Cities can be better,” he said. “We have a long way to go.”
