(INTELLIHUB) — Like a concerted operation, the summer of rage has arrived. Civil unrest has now spread to several cities and states following the police murder of a Minneapolis man named George Floyd.

Protesters taking a stand against police brutality have become increasingly unruly in both Minneapolis and Los Angeles over the past several days which has put a strain on law enforcement personnel tasked with riot duty.

Things have ramped up in Minneapolis following Tuesday’s siege on the police department’s Third Precinct where protesters were captured on video decimating police property before law enforcement officers arrived firing concussion grenades and tear gas to disperse the crowd.

I just took a walk around the block next to the Minneapolis Police precinct. This is what the city is waking up to today.

To make matters worse a social media post containing a video has surfaced which insinuates undercover police were the primary arsonists on Wednesday.

“A bunch of undercover cops were the main ones starting the arsons!!!!!!,” the post reads. “Spread the word!!!”
