This was the first man to break a window at autozone. A move that started the string of looting and damage to businesses. He is seen wearing all black and carrying an umbrella to conceal the hammer he is holding in the same hand. No one knew this man, he didn’t protest, when confronted he ran the other way. And by the looks of it- his boots- are military grade. Meaning this man is either in some form or militia or he is WITH THE POLICE
St. Paul police rebut social media theory that officer instigated Minneapolis unrest
The St. Paul Police Department pushed back Friday as social media posters accused one if its officers of instigating property damage as hundreds gathered to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Eagan police also released a statement via Twitter, saying it had been “made aware of a social media post that falsely identifies one of our officers as the person caught on video breaking windows in Minneapolis. We have seen the photo and this person does not work for the Eagan Police Department.”

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison made reference to the video while speaking to a cable network early Thursday evening and asked protesters to continue to document “suspicious people doing damage.”
“I urge all the protesters, don’t let somebody tear down the good reputation of your righteous protest,” he said. “Take pictures of these people that might be provocateurs. That evidence is on YouTube; I urge people to take a look at it and see they can identify that guy.”
So who pays the provocator?
