The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Minnesota on Friday announced that the FBI brought charges against a member of the far-right “Boogaloo Bois” group for organizing and participating in an effort to “incite a riot” outside a Minneapolis police precinct in May amid protests against the police killing of George Floyd.
According to the legal complaint filed Monday, Ivan Harrison Hunter, a 26-year-old from Boerne, Texas, who claims to be a member of the Boogaloo Bois, communicated with fellow members in late May ahead of a planned trip to Minneapolis as police had already started clashing with protesters in the city.
The documents claim that federal agents obtained a video from the evening of May 28 showing an individual walking up to the door of the Third Precinct in Minneapolis and firing 13 rounds from “what appears to be an AK-47 style semiautomatic rifle.”
Federal officials said the shooter can be seen in the footage walking up to the camera and high-fiving other individuals before shouting “Justice for Floyd!”
He’s apparently being accused of “inciting a riot” well AFTER the riot had already begun!
That’s about as logical as, “He hit me in my fist with his nose, your Honor!”
Sectors of the left are using this to disavow the burning of the 3rd Precinct in Minneapolis. At the time of the burning a poll found that roughly half of Americans thought the incident was at least somewhat justified. This is 100% counter insurgency doctrine in action. The state is splitting the insurgency by using Antifa as the right’s boogey man, and the boogaloo bois to scare the left.
Me must be done calling the proud boys racist homophobic fascist nazis then.
Am I your leftwing boogie man?
I’m generally not scared of scaredy-cats.
It’s more of a ridicule type of thing…
