There was a shooting Wednesday night in the Autonomous Zone, this time in Minneapolis. Time and time again autonomous zones prove to be dangerous and unpredictable, yet they’re still allowed to thrive in Democratic-run cities.
There are several gates and jerry-rigged barriers enclose ‘George Floyd Square,’ a four-block area from 37th to 39th Streets South and Columbus and Elliott Avenues East in Minneapolis. The closed off area serves as a memorial in the neighborhood where Geroge Floyd died.
Tonight there is a manhunt underway following the fatal shooting of a black man nearby ‘George Floyd Square.’
According to the Times, as of Sunday night, no white people were allowed access to the area by local activists. The description mirrored Seattle’s autonomous zone established last summer. Pedestrians were asked to leave, with activist guards manning the gates. The zone has been plagued by crime since last year.
The George Floyd memorial is an “autonomous zone” with several blocks controlled by activists. Police don’t even go in. We tried to respectfully get video-but left after two people confronted us near the barricades.
Later learned many protestors don’t even feel comfortable there. pic.twitter.com/5w32fxQ0hR
