Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said on Sunday that while some Minneapolis residents felt safer with National Guard troops on city streets after demonstrations over the police-involved death of George Floyd turned violent, others felt terrorized by the presence of tanks while protesting.
The congresswoman also called for nationwide reforms beyond just getting justice for George Floyd by charging the other former Minneapolis police officers who stood by idly while former officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyds neck.

BREAKING: man critically injured at Dallas riots
It appears he attempted to defend a shop with a large sword
Looters ran at him, then he charged rioters
They then beat him with a skateboard and stoned him with medium sized rocks

Well, I felt encouraged...........................
Nice pictures Guys
Humvees are tanks?
Too bad the tank didn’t have a flame thrower.
That’s too damn bad.......
A lot of these people are identifiable, and should be prosecuted.
Does she know the difference between a fire truck and a tank?
So infuriating, which I saw with my own eyes in this mid sized city, when Obama made the police give up their military style vehicles.
The leftists knew there was a physical war coming. They knew they would not be able to defeat the armored vehicles. So Obama took them away.
Someone here told me some were allowed back.
Probably no funds left to buy them back, though. Now imagine the budget of all day and all night full police in all these cities. Expensive!!
I would much rather they felt dead.
I can’t believe my eyes and ears. Is she saying law enforcement should not bring in reinforcements if needed to quell rioting?
Is she implying that law enforcement should just stand aside and let rioters do what rioters do best? Give them room to do their thing as a mayor of Baltimore might say?
Next there will be a class action case by the terrorized victims.
If Omar and Tlaib are unhappy and terrorized then I am happy and contented. Like the way that works out.
Whoa whoa whoa feelings!
One would think that the site of military on the streets would make her feel right at home.
Go back to Somalia where you belong.
