Minnesota National Guard troops come under gunfire during neighborhood patrol operation

The already deteriorating situation in and around Minneapolis, Minnesota went from bad to worse on Sunday morning as protesters and rioters, entering their second week of violent outbreaks, took the situation to the next level.

According to Breitbart, Minnesota National Guard troops reported taking gunfire early Sunday morning, apparently as a result of a drive-by shooting incident. Luckily no troops were killed in the incident and it’s unclear whether or not the shooting was related to the continued rioting and violent outbreak, but with tensions high in the area, it wouldn’t be a stretch to presume the incident is linked.

The Minnesota National Guard’s official Twitter account kept the public apprised of the incident and the outcome in a series of tweets on Sunday.

In a follow-up tweet, it was revealed that two National Guard troops sustained minor injuries as a result of the shooting.

“One Guardsman sustained an injury from shattered glass requiring additional care and was taken to a local hospital to receive treatment. The other Guardsman received only superficial injuries,” the tweet indicated.

The Guard troops were part of a neighborhood security team called “Operation Safety Net,” which is a joint task force comprised of local, county, and state law enforcement officers. Guard troops were activated “as part of the effort to protect people, freedom of speech and property during the Derek Chauvin trial as well as the aftermath of the police involved shooting of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center,” a statement read.

Minnesota National Guard leadership revealed on Monday that some 500 troops have been activated so far, as closing arguments in the Derek Chauvin trial are expected to wrap up by the end of business on Monday, when the case will then be sent to the jury for a verdict, which is expected to be announced sometime this week.

Only time will tell what the verdict leads to, but if it’s anything other than the murder conviction demanded by protesters and rioters, Minneapolis will likely be in very bad and dangerous shape by week’s end.

  1. Pelosi Loses It: Bizarre Speech Raises Red Flags, Pelosi is showing signs that she is in bad shape mentally, possibly as bad as Biden if not worse. She should immediately under go a mental exam, to see if she is fit to continue to serve as the speaker, or in the congress in any capacity. She has been making bad decisions, not to mention violating her oath of office.

  2. I guess they never read anything longer than SMS on “smart”-phones! The problem is that their phones are much smarter than them – even after battery is dead! Another problem is that most of Americans of younger generations have memory shorter than SMS!

  3. Every revolution seems to attempt to revolve the wheel of history just by one full turn to the point of the same old New World Disorder! The only difference is, who is turning the wheel or returning as men in power! The only place to live in is the ocean! Ocean is prehistoric and will remain such after the end of history!

  4. There is time to report (after Wikipedia), what have happened in Kent State two days before shooting!

    “Several merchants reported they were told that if they did not display anti-war slogans, their businesses would be burned down.”

    Commies always fight for a “peace” until even one stone on the stone will not remain!
    Exactly the same tactics is now copied and implemented by new administration!

  5. Time to exchange the rubber bullets and tear gas for something more effective. Everyone knows that throwing bricks, frozen pop cans and rocks along with setting fires, looting, destroying property and shooting at people is not a “Protest.” It’s a “Riot,” even when the phony lying news media won’t label it for what it is. Those that fire on our troops are actually urban terrorists. That takes it to the next level where they may have to use tactics to deal with urban terrorists.

  6. If the National Guard would use water cannons no mess or blood just trash and drowned rats but can’t because of the idots in charge.As for PELOSI she cant keep herself straight,drunk,Senile and crooked as the day is old. So her people are just the same. As for Waters she should have been gone a long time ago. Like the sixties in the deep deep South.Out of site out of mind.

  7. If you are curious of final output – just watch the movie “Do The Right Thing!” (1989) by Spike Lee!

  8. In the late sixties in LA area WATTS to be exact we stopped them I know,I was there.Fixed bayonets. and was told to fire if fired upon .Not like the crap thats goingon today. Was stationed at EL TORO at that time;better times then no bulls—.Just a old man thinking back when times were good.

  9. Napalm and orange agent will solve this problem instantly!
    Do we have enough new old stock?
    Just asking!

    Who in The Minnesota National Guard was stupid enough to open Twitter account?
    Was it a part of mandatory National Guard’s duties and obligations?
    When Minnesota National Guard will be banned from Twitter?
    When Twitter will be banned from our lives and from life of our nation?


    1. I have another question right away:
      When Joe Bidden will apply for Twitter account for United States? It appears to be obvious move – for Twitter appears to be a whole world we live in!

  11. This is the second time “the old bitty” Waters has gone out of her congressional umbrella and publicly preached civil disorder. If she goes out again away from her district or her congressional hiding place, and incites violence, I hope the city’s mayor has the backbone to have her arrested and charged with inciting riots. She’s just as bad as those listening to her racist vitriol. She’s the real racist.
    It’s a shame that Pelosi hasn’t the common decency keep her members in check and is too senile to realize that she also is complicit in promoting violence.
    If these so-called “representatives of the people” need protection, it would be fitting that the police they are vilifying, ignore their calls for help, telling them “you’re on your own”.

  12. Throw bananas at them, then shoot them. Why should the national guard put up with this. It’s time to do what we have to. They lost their own stores where they live (questionable) housing if you want to call it that. They wonder why no large food chain will come to the hood. They destroy every thing and everywhere they go. They wouldn’t know how to care for a house. You need money, and you get that when you work. All they know is welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, and everything else they get for free. They kill each other, sell drugs, and have kids. The more kids you have, the more freebies you get. Send them back to Africa..

    1. The best place for them is Liberia! Over there they will have all liberties they are attracted to and they apply for while rioting!

  13. Why are we, the citizens of the United States of America, allowing this to continue? I’m 78 years old and there has never been a time like this in my lifetime. Yes, we had Civil Rights (settled) and the Viet Nam War (veteran husband) but we haven’t been divided like this since the Civil War. Is this where we want to go?

  14. As I have said all along, if NOTHING is being done to STOP them, the WORSE it will get…Every time a little more…it’s only okay for the NG to keep them safe in DC…….

  15. Lt. Rob Polans Spec & Intel Ops. Ret? Not PC. nor woke, so if I offend you, cancel my account! says:

    These TRASH need to be put down hard and suddenly. Then they will call in reinforcements. Ahh but we have reinforcements too. And just as they have access to military grade weapons, so do we. I’ve never seen bayonettes as something to be feared. I see them as clumsy. Give the Guard Quad 450s, M-38s and flame throwers then you have an unbeatable force.

    1. I agree. Mini guns in the helicopters would be nice. 4000 rds per min. would clean up a street or sidewalk.

  16. The Democrats are inciting this violence since last summer. The left-wing news medias incite violence every day. The people at these riots are told they are peaceful when they burn down cities. The only people being arrested are one defunding them selves against the rioters or the ones who went to the Capital on Jan 6, . The rioter arrested during the summer are give community service. The ones at the Capital were hunted down put in jail and are facing prison time.

    1. Exactly. And the Communist-run Oval Office wants it played out exactly as it is, for however long they choose. It’s about Power and Control – of citizens; and that includes the so-called Pandemic; pushing their toxic vaccines; keeping your child un-educated; more lock-downs and hiding your identity with faux masks.

  17. These bullying terrorists have had their way for far too long….. it would be a reasonable response to get rid of them…….
    Throw the whole unAmerican bunch of losers in jail…(too good for them)……………

  18. Time to start shooting BLM , Antifa and militant blacks criminal animals. That’s the only sort of justice these animals understand.

    1. I agree 110000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 % ! I hope it starts tonight !

  19. Sorry to hear that two Guardsmen were injured by the cowards who did the drive by, I hope they get caught I also wonder if they returned fire the article does not say

  20. Let the hail hole they created burn to the ground.. they live there and do nothing to stop it. Let it happen and you get what you get…. put some looting laws out. Blm need more houses; so loot more and feed their needs. Extortion at its worst. Pay blm money or your company will be labeled racist… cha ching instant cash transfer.. legal extortion BLM

  21. The Monkey TERRORIST of black TRASH matters has been burning down cities , looting , stealing , fighting police , injuring police for a year now . Hopefully , they’ll give the National Guard good reasons to open up on thier worthless A$$ES !! Otherwise , the Monkey TERRORIST are going to continue burning , looting , and stealing . What is REALLY needed , by law abiding citizens is , a 24 hour ” PURGE ” of black TRASH matters , with that , your average citizens can take back thier streets !!!

  22. The only way to quell this uprising is to use brute force against their Nazi style outburst. May be their neighborhoods should be burned, destroyed and looted .

  23. This was the cause of Maxine Waters showing up in a place where she had no business being. She NEEDS to be held accountable and if Pelosi refuses to hold her accountable then Pelosi should also be terminated along with Waters.

  24. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.
    US Supreme Court, 1 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20543
    You cannot call or email — you must write a letter!!!
    Members of the House
    Members of the Senate
    Stop complaining start calling and writing before its to late. I call and write everyday. 74million of us voted for Trump bombard these people with calls and letters.

    1. Marie I wish I thought this would work, but the low life P.O.S.’s don’T listen anymore they don’t care how we write and call they are Communist and think we are the slaves to their wishes. Only GOD can fix this Great Country now. He is coming back very shortely and that is the solution to the problems now. All the Polititans both Democraps and Repubcommies are the same. God has a just reward for all of them and the gates of Hell is open wide for them to enter where they can spend eternety together.

  25. we found out how to handle rioters at Kent State
    we can not be afraid to use it again
    these people are just a bunch of antiAmericans and thugs

  26. I just pray that the National Guard returned the fire, and that a large number of the rioters were killed ! !

  27. Someone better actually do something to stop this craziness because the more these rioters get by with their shenanigans the harder they will push. The color of the rioters doesn’t matter, their actions matter a lot.

    1. Start with removing Maxine Watters. They impeached trump because he said ” fight like hell” for honest elections!
      Maxine said “take to the streets, get confrontational” “let them know we mean business”. That is a hell of a lot more inciting
      than Trump did. So Impeach her!

      1. This is true. Pelosi twisted the words that President Trump stated and turned it into an insurrection and inciting riots leading to impeachment by the dirty Democratic Party. When asked about Maxine’s remarks she stated that they were about Civil Rights of the people and in no way were inciting riots. What a bunch of crap! Everyone in the world knew exactly what Mad Max was talking about staying in the streets and letting them know we want stand for this injustice. Everyone except brain dead Pelosi that is. But of course she knew too. She just picks and chooses what she knows. Why is either of them still in Congress?

        1. I agree to a point, just make sure they are issued real live ammo ! None of these rubber bullets that are meant as a warning ! A verbal warning that rioters will be shot on sight is plenty!

      2. Correction! They have never impeached Trump!
        They made only several attempts and they will again – if we do not stop them!

  28. Apparently the so called protestors are the most ignorant people on the face of the earth when they think it is a good idea to get into a gun fight with the National Guard. The Guard get to carry the good weapons, (full automatic) and if attacked there might be collateral damage at which I couldn’t blame them!

      1. I believe unless we get the Lord back in America like over 40 years ago it will always get worse America used to be about each other not self, money or materialistic lifestyle,
        So if we don’t change back to the right Spiritual attitude and heart of America we all are in dangerous, wrong is wrong, the Bible will always teach the right path if taught the right way and not the flesh value that was taught for over the last 30yrs,
        We are in Revelation’s

        1. Amen.Right is Right&wrong is wrong.No if Ands or buts about that statement. Keep your 👀 EYES PURE&FOCUSED ON THE WORD OF GOD.#LAKRUNK2021#LALEMA2021.PRAY&REJOICE THAT YOUR NAME IS WRITTEN IN THE LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE

        2. Remember, what JFK said long ago?
          “Do not ask, what your country could do for you! Ask yourself, what you can do for your country!”
          As long as it is still your country!
          There is time now to get it back!

      2. Carol, unfortunately with K. Harris in charge I would say they have no such order. Harris treats people (hero’s) as expendable. The only one’s protected are the criminals.

        1. Kamala has no business being in charge of anything. All she knows how to do it laugh like a hyena. I cna’t stand to look at her she is so repulsive and to realize she got where she is by sleeping with various people in administrations is just sickening.

    1. I don’t think the National Guard soldiers are allowed to use force. Remember, the Dems provoke violence so they don’t want those rioters hurt. If this were Trump supporters, they would be locked up and prosecuted.

  29. The national guard knows what to do if the jungle elements are shooting at them. Time for another Kent State in Minneapolis….the jungle has that coming to them for disrespecting law and order…

    1. YES…. but I’m afraid the “TRASH” could care less … They are NOT AMERICANS ! They are pure trash … all of them. AND ONE DAY they will find out WHO owns this country.

          1. We need to get infantry involved and special forces. And marines. And stand our ground against them. This needs to stop. Don’t let them play this out. Too many attacks on our nation. If we don’t stop them they won’t quit. Lock the rioters up with no bale.

      1. 1968 Chicago. Rioters and looters protesting at the Demonrat convention had one night of anarchy. Mayor Richard J Daily, the last serious leader in Chicago, announced that all looters, brick throwers, and arsonists would be shot on sight. That night 5 rioters were shot by police on horseback. The next night no one showed up. Daily’s only regret? Some TVs were broken when the perps dropped them after being shot.

    2. I agree, As a former TXARNG,I say arm the troops with their own weapons for their own protection.
      Those a**hole rioters deserve what they would get from someone who is not afraid to use it especially with a bayonet attached. It is time to take our country back from the Commies.

      1. An eye for an eye I hope the jag officer hold the Governor accountyfor any injuries that troops sustain.

    3. These poor mislead ANIMALS are going to suffer for the horrible leadership they have had under Obama and Biden trying to achieve their political the political ends of their puppet masters from the deep state! The communists told us decades ago they were going to “bury us!” Looks like they are now trying to achiever that goal!

      Way past time to put a stop to this nonsense!

    4. Your right RM, let our troops protect the majority of Americans and take out the trash with the others. Our country is going down hill quickly and the politicians are the one’s causing it and for some reason the people won’t rid Congress. Maybe in 2022 – hopefully.

    5. To rm: I totally agree with you. If you were cancelled maybe main street gazette should also go down the STYKS.
      Yolanda Martinez

    6. Just lenin’s “useful idiots”(actually useless!) or hitler’s brown shirts, sans uniforms, doing the coming politburo’s bidding.
      This should tell people just how close, and confidant, the communists calling themselves democrats are.
      It is only going to get worse unless they are put down hard which will be hard to do since many are in government as well as george soros et al.

      1. Don’t give up your firearms, no matter what! Anyone who loves this country and the freedoms we have had (in the past will rue the day we did. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    7. This is insane. Waters should have been left to get home on her own shes responsible for this crap. Next time a democrat wants law enforcement to protect them. Let them manage on their own. They are such disgraces to our Nation…..they make me want to vomit.
