I feel bad for people in Minneapolis, and I am Canadian. If Derek Chauvin is not charged a certain way, there will be "Peaceful Protests". If he is found innocent, there will be "Peaceful Protests". If he is charged a very specific way, there will be "Peaceful Protests". This is a no win scenario for everyone. All I can recommend is to just leave. I am not kidding. When there is no police, everyone loses.
I am trained as an Emergency Medical Responder. I am taught "do not be a hero". A proper vehicle line is a firetruck (inspect if the scene is safe), ambulance (we try to save people) and a police cruiser (to protect us is we are attacked). If there is no police, the people who want to defund the police, if they get hurt and there is gunshots fired, we are not going in to save them. If a building is on fire, and there is a gunshots fired, I do not expect firefighters to put out fires. Why? We can not do anything if we are hurt or dead. Next time "Becareful for what you wish for", for it may not end well for you.
