Democrat says BLM lighting Police on fire is “Righteousness”

Devin Hogan the chair of the Minneapolis Democratic farmer labor party which is the state affiliate of the national Democratic Party, wrote an op-ed for Southside Pride writing:

“At this point the world was paying attention. Friends and family were reaching out. How come words won’t satiate people? Why Minneapolis? The cops started it, I replied. They killed George Floyd and took every opportunity to escalate, agitate and make things worse. The cops are rioting and the people are responding,” Hogan wrote.

He also said that lighting the third precinct on fire was a “revolutionary moment” and said this violent act is an “act of pure righteousness” and opens “new worlds of understanding.”

The police station fire Hogan is referring to was the May 28, 2020 fire in which Dylan Shakespeare Robinson 23, chose to engage in violence and destruction and put lives at risk and contributed to widespread lawlessness in Minneapolis by lighting the station on fire. He was sentenced to four years in prison and $12 million in restitution. for the arson.

Hogan in his op-ed said that “The people declared themselves ungovernable and unilaterally took their power back. The largest international human rights movement in modern history had begun. The youth of Minneapolis carried all of this. The cops started it.”
