Black people when white business owners never come back to Minneapolis: "racist white flight"

Edit: Also Minnesota has a "duty to retreat" law for business owners. Looters, come on down!!

I suspect this sort of shit is to deliberately drive out stable business owners. When the stable businesses go, the neighborhood quickly turns to shit. Pretty soon you get "white flight" and the area becomes a ghetto. When the area becomes a ghetto, Democrats essentially have it on lock. None of those idiots rioting and looting are ever going to vote against gibmedats, so they'll be good little slaves to 'masa and vote for whoever has that D next to their name until the end of time, never really stopping to think why it is that their situation never really improves.

Hopefully he has some sort of self-defense insurance to his name that he pays monthly dues for. The policy I have allows for unlimited criminal and unlimited civil cost payments covered, bail bond given up front, etc. So that would definitely make it a lot easier on him. The damage to his business might be another story though.

It'll never get prosecuted. Given the unrest and imminent threat to his person for great bodily injury if he were to step outside to retreat, it's completely reasonable to have opened fire when he did. No reasonable prosecutor would try to go forward with these charges because they know it holds no weight.

bubadmt 10 points ago

I feel like they arrested him only as an attempt (a poor one, at that) to cool down tensions. They want to be able to point to something concrete to be able to show that they are taking action. Otherwise it may enrage the protestors more to see more deaths and a lack of action by police. The action is just in all the wrong places, but it'll correct itself soon after. I'm confident this will be dropped. 97ish percent of self-defense cases in the US never go to court because the standard of proving it is very high, but in this case, it's pretty clear cut enough to the point that no one can point and say that it would have been safer for the owner to let looters in and for him to step outside into the mayhem.

Enjoy it while you can, all the "based immigrants" Texas is importing are voting 75-80% for democrats and those new Texans see your lifetime of hard work as something they can get an elected official to vote away from you. Texas with current demographic shift is going to be blue in 2030 and solid blue by 2036.

"When it happens".

There are no areas I am aware of in the US or abroad where non-europeans in indigenous European regions voted for a traditional conservative over an anti-European liberal. Imagine if you were able to immigrate to China and vote in their elections, would you support a party that defended Chinese culture or would you vote for whoever wanted to tear down Chinese culture and transfer the chinese wealth to your family. You will get a group of outliers who respect conservatism, but the more "diverse" an area gets the less likely you will get a candidate who supports conservatism.

Cheesemaker 30 points ago

To be fair, if you're in a state with stand your ground law you'll still get arrested. Unlike in most criminal cases, the burden of proof is on the defendant to prove they were standing their ground. Of course, most prosecutors will/should drop the case and it should never go to court if it's clear you were defending yourself. However, you'll still be arrested as its not the police officers discretion to make that judgment.

14
Lord_Karius 14 points ago

Cyer6 9 points ago

It is a common practice within law enforcement to error on the side of making an arrest. The case will be forwarded to the DA who then has full discretion to proceed with prosecution or drop the case "in the interest of justice." It happens all of the time but the point is, the cops are able to remove themselves and their department from any public scrutiny and allegations that they "failed to act" or carry out their duties.

brassmule 2 points ago

Arizona has great gun laws. As a Texas resident, really the only thing Texas has over Arizona is that you can, legally, shoot someone for criminal mischief (which includes property theft), as long as it is after dark. It's a holdover from the cattle rustling days.

However, Arizona has constitutional carry, an easy permitting process for enhanced and reciprocal carry, stand your ground, and castle doctrine includes your home, workplaces, and vehicle, all topped off by open carry.

Texas does not have permit-less carry and requires one to have a CHL if you intend to open carry a handgun (open carry of rifles is fine).

1
Rugar22 1 point ago

Then my idea would go more extreme, allowing Texas's right to legally shoot a bad guy but, at anytime of the day and I wouldn't require any permits at all. Only thing that is holding you back is when the gun seller can check your background and deny you service if they feel your dangerous.

Stand your ground is traditionally only for when you are outside your home. In your home - and in most states, your car and place of business as well - Castle Doctrine, which is older than the United States, applies.

Stand your ground has a bad name because of the false media narrative around the Zimmerman case. The media loves to trot out stand your ground whenever they want to make a legal shooting appear unjustified.

I'm not a Minnesota resident and have never traveled there, so I am not familiar with whether or not castle doctrine applies beyond simply your place of dwelling but also to the vehicle or workplace. A quick look makes it appear that only in the place of ones abode do you not have a duty to retreat.

It's totally BS that you cannot feel safe in your own damn business. Where else are you going to retreat to, if not your own office?

Duty to retreat typically requires you to retreat only when you can do so in perfect safety, e.g.: you don’t have to jump through a glass window to retreat.

I failed to see how one can retreat in perfect safety in the middle of a riot.

2
blurryface 2 points ago

If you're being attacked you're obligated to retreat first. If you are pursued again you have the right to fight back.

I haven’t seen any stories about that, but I can totally believe, wouldn’t be nearly the 100th time that’s happened to perpetuate something. Some states reopening and where’s the “2nd Wave”? So they need something to distract attention, sorry to sound like a conspiracy theorist.

From what we know now, Floyd didn’t deserve to die like that, more will come out soon, whether on drugs etc. but a counterfeit bill, even resisting it was inappropriate use of force, he was cuffed, shouldn’t have died and the cops should have to go through a trial. But the real people who deserve to die are the looters. Some of the videos floating around, the lady in a wheelchair getting sprayed with a fire extinguisher, punched repeated, just for blocking a fire exit (turned entrance by criminals) the mob mentality is scary and disgusting. Why she was even there in the first place, I have no clue, maybe she thought she was doing the right thing to protest, but you don’t have to have been around long to realize how that was gonna turn out well. Our side protests, the place often looks cleaner and better when everybody leaves; vs the other side, it’s mayhem, people get hurt and it’s totally wrecked EVERYTIME, but look how it’s portrayed by the media.

TheYeeter 3 points ago

Also Minnesota has a "duty to retreat" law for business owners. Looters, come on down!!

Is there a source for this? Minnesota generally prescribes to a form of Castle Doctrine for defence of the home, (but doesn't seem to have a particularly consistent track record of how that applies to co-residents, though that's not relevant here). But I couldn't find any case law that would clarify whether those same protections extended to other places such as a vehicle or place of business.

Here's the relevant ruling from their supreme court:

We agree that when acting in self-defense in the home, a person should not be required to retreat from the home before using reasonable force to defend himself, regardless of whether the aggressor is also rightfully in the home.   Thus we adopt the following rule:  There is no duty to retreat from one's own home when acting in self-defense in the home, regardless of whether the aggressor is a co-resident.   But the lack of a duty to retreat does not abrogate the obligation to act reasonably when using force in self-defense.   Therefore, in all situations in which a party claims self-defense, even absent a duty to retreat, the key inquiry will still be into the reasonableness of the use of force and the level of force under the specific circumstances of each case.

In Erwin v. State (1876), the Supreme Court of Ohio wrote that a "true man", one without fault, would not retreat. In Runyan v. State (1877), the Indiana court rejected a duty to retreat, implying it was un-American, referring to the distinct American mind, "the tendency of the American mind seems to be very strongly against" a duty to retreat. The court went further in saying that no statutory law could require a duty to retreat, because the right to stand one's ground is "founded on the law of nature; and is not, nor can be, superseded by any law of society."

Nobody. It’s supposed to be handled by insurance I’m assuming. I personally think the law is silly, and would rather give store owners the right to shoot anybody that tries damaging their property or threatening them. Anything less is assuming people are looting and rioting and burning things ‘with good intentions’ or something.

I don’t live in Texas or know their laws, but my Texan friends tell me that they’re allowed to shoot people for so much as suspiciously entering their general property line. I’m okay with that. No solicitors, and no one uninvited. Especially in rural areas where cops can be an hour away.

you say arbery didn't deserve to die, but did that man standing in his path deserve to die? arbery was attacking him and trying to take his shotgun.
and how do they not have a right to stand on the side of the road while holding guns? they were not chasing him at that moment (nobody was in the driver's seat of the car). they were only standing in his path, and he charged at them. they weren't threatening or pointing guns at him and he attacked them.

So we have a scenario where one person is:
-standing at a checkpoint, armed. Nothing more. Police do this all the time. Nothing about this was threatening unless you think “being white and holding a gun” is somehow inherently threatening.
And another person is:
-running towards this checkpoint with intent to kill (which he tries to do when he attacks the man and attempts to take his gun. Arbery was unprovoked, unless you think every police checkpoint is provocation for a fight to the death).
How exactly were the white guys aggressors? You’re just saying these things without actually backing them up. Didn’t you even watch the video? It’s like your brain can’t process multiple things at once.

Not only did those two guys, according to you, deserve death for simply being concerned about their community and setting up a checkpoint, but now I deserve to be threatened with my life as well, all for having an opinion. You’re so emotional, like a hysterical woman.

These rioters and looters are unwilling to let the legal system take its course. Or at least that is their excuse. This situation regarding riots brings to mind a method of riot quelling in the days following Dr. King's death.

Mayor Richard J. Daley (The Old Man -- not the son) identified rioters as arsonists and thus "potential murderers". On that basis, he issued an order for the police to "shoot to kill" or "shoot to maim". It's a matter of historical record. I was a little girl at the time, but as I recall, the rioting did not last long because of this order.

I do not think this modern method of allowing them to tantrum looting and burning at will yields positive results.

Because the demonstrators and joggers are weak when either alone or called out on their BS they coward. I don't feel citizens should ever be fired upon but history as shown us that these riots can only be dealt with one way. Look up the Newark NJ riots of 1967. As soon as word got out that rioters were being thrown off roofs it ended rather quickly.

Duty to retreat? What the actual fuck Minnesota?

3
Randomite 3 points ago

I agree that MN ought to legislate Stand Your Ground, but tbh, this is the first/only pawn shop I've ever seen that doesn't have security bars on all storefront and doors so that people can't do a smash and grab. Since most insurance won't cover losses from rioting, this guy is suffering a major setback from this, even if MN doesn't prosecute.

Jessica McBride, the author of the linked article, practically doxxed the guy. Pretty strange how much of his personal info she put in there, including his home town and other businesses. It's like she wants something bad to happen to his family.

What's her agenda?

You guys ready to realize what was going on with that whole Karen thing? How it was just a slur for white women? If you call the police on someone who threatens you and they are black, congrats youre a racist and your life will be ruined. If you defend yourself against attacks and they are black congrats your life will be ruined.

I can't possibly see how insurance would cover anywhere close to this mans losses if he were required to allow people to just loot. A pawn shop is a tricky business, with various value on items, that can be difficult if not impossible to account for entirely. It would be a nightmare to try to get insurance to cover everything. The best he could have hoped for is for it to cover his base costs, which would still put him out of business and in the hole once you consider that he would have to rebuild....after a pandemic lock down no less. Hell by the time he even got insurance to pay a dime, he would already be out of business.

I believe there is a federal law that says it is legal to kill anyone in the commission of a felony, and federal law would supersede local/state law. And it shouldn't matter if it's your home or not....if you own the business, that's no difference from being personally mugged in an alley.

Here we have unequal justice 4. Useless cops murder a man then get fired . Now we have an innocent. Man in jail protecting his lively hood sorry but those fucking. Crooked cops should be held for any and all deaths brought about by their actions. I am sorry but seeing the video of 3 cops on top of one man that handcuffed behind his back well lets just say they are lucky. That someone with a concealed carry license did not take them out.

The local law says you can use deadly force if your life is in danger.

Well, being as they were looting and torching surrounding businesses I would argue that the pawn shop owner's life was in danger.

But a jury in a cucked state may find otherwise.

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society.

Their peaceful and generous nature, even during trying times, make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture.

Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people.

Real estate values are fueled by the influx of large numbers of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature, improving the success and safety of their communities,

Cities in which large numbers of African Americans live gleam, brightly shining as an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self- improvement earned with honest, hard work, and a self-reliant can-do nature.

Without their industrious and creative drive, we would undoubtedly be poorer as a nation.

Why do I get the feeling this guy wasn't JUST defending his property. I think he was defending his life! Why do I get the feeling the perp had a weapon and was threatening him? Hardly anyone would shoot another human if they were simply taking something and didn't pose a risk.

Cops would rather let your family be raped and murdered than to enforce order and be called a racist. This riot is absolute proof that we do not need police when we already have a 2nd Ammendment and a God given right to self defense. Cops are not your friends. Fuck cops.

If you shoot someone, no matter the circumstances, your going to jail. Say nothing to cops. Get a lawyer. This doesn't excuse the other people not being arrested. But yeah you get in a gun fight your going to the clink for 24 to 48 hours period.

If the guy shot someone robbing his store, as much as I disagree, he's at fault in Minnesota per the article.

I don't know much about laws up there but duty to retreat seems to be a thing there, which is fucking retarded.

You gotta know your gun laws before you open up on someone, your life and freedom depend on it.

Now if the perp had a gun and he had no choice, fuck that asshole.

Edit: down vote away, but I didn't write the law in Minnesota. Vote out communist politicians and FIX the laws

I might remind you that the law was once okay with slavery, women as second class citizens, and so forth. You've got a pretty shitty set of moral principles if they're predicated entirely on what the law allows.

Well it is still current law as much as we disagree with it and what separates us is that we still what to go ahead, work, pay bills, support family and hopefully save enough to have a few years retirement. They are doing exactly what you are advocating, breaking the law and creating a scenario that they will have no future. Self preservation is a trait of intelligence and the people rioting are demonstrating that they have none. Stay the course everyone, go to work, build wealth, better yourselves which in turn makes you a better person to be around and others will appreciate it. Be a low life piece of shit like the rioters, well they can go F themselves.

Oh and if anyone knows where the service will be for the "demonstrator" who died, I'd like to send a gift basket, I'm thinking a MAGA hat and an American flag.

That’s why you go to trial and hopefully get a jury of your peers who would put themselves in your shoes and understand jury nullification.

When someone steals from you they are actually stealing a part of your life that you will never get back. You only have a finite amount of time on this planet, and once you spend it working to make money to purchase things you need and enjoy in life, it’s gone.

You are right about it being the letter of the law “duty to retreat”. So I don't think you should be downvoted. Typically pawn shops have a lot of guns. You retreat from that and allow a looting free for all, lots of death.

Also, if you write the words “duty to retreat” on anything, you're a loser imo

MakeAmericaGreat9 2 points ago

I don't agree with the law. I most definitely agree that they could have taken guns from the store and went on a spree and could have killed him. Duty to retreat laws are fucking stupid.

In PA If someone breaks into my house without a weapon and I light them up, I'm toast. If they have my TV in their hands when I shoot, I'm going to jail. It's retarded. If they break in with a gun and I leave them on the floor in good. How stupid is that shit? Someone breaks into my house and I can't shoot them.
