10 days ago a man from Illinois who took part in protests in both Chicago and Minneapolis was caught handing out explosives and encouraged others to “light that b***h and throw it” at police officers. He is facing federal criminal charges, but the mainstream media said that there are no bombs on the peaceful protests and that this man was not guilty
Matthew Rupert, 28, was charged with civil disorder, carrying on a riot and possession of unregistered destructive devices, according to a federal complaint filed Monday in the U.S. District Court in Minnesota.
And it seems that his bombs finally made their way to the streets of Chicago.
A video from the yesterday protest surfaced and it shows a group of rioters bombing Chicago PD and then act surprised when Chicago PD responds.
The Chicago PD didn’t verify what kind of devices were used by the protesters but they used strong firework and possibly homemade bombs.
Curfews had been in place in Chicago and some suburbs after looting and unrest occurred since George Floyd’s death.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot lifted Chicago’s curfew Sunday afternoon, effective immediately even do Chicago saw its deadliest weekend of gun violence this year as protests, riots, and looting continued to rock the city after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
A total of 24 people were killed and at least 61 injured by gun violence, more than half shot on Sunday. Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said that 17 of the gun deaths occurred on Sunday alone.
The FBI said anyone wishing to report “suspected arson, use of explosive devices, or violent, destructive acts associated with the otherwise peaceful protests” may do so by calling (800) 225-5324.
