Here’s a story that was making the rounds Tuesday, but it’s worth a look. According to The Post Millennial, Black Lives Matter activists in Minneapolis surrounded a city council member’s car and demanded that she sign a statement promising that charges against rioters would be dropped.
City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins says activists held her captive in her car for 90 minutes while forcing her to agree to their demands.

Activist Donald Hooker Jr. — one of the activists seen on video confronting Jenkins — says he asked her about police accountability, defunding police and returning George Floyd Square to the people.
“We were having a conversation. I was trying to keep her accountable, and I said, ‘Well, we we’ll just have to show up and do a protest at your house, a friendly protest,’ and then that’s when she blew up in my face,” Hooker Jr. said.
Charming. And defunding police? Were these protesters Republicans by any chance?
This is crazy.

Does the Minneapolis City Council even have authority over criminal prosecutions?
This appears to not only be extortion, but rather stupid extortion as well.

So, BLM trash are literally so breathtakingly stupid that they don't even understand a document signed under force & duress has precisely zero legal standing in any court on the planet. That is the mental level of a two year old. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

She played them. Signed the statement under duress. Null and void.

I'd imagine any edict signed under duress carries the same weight as if they'd signed it themselves.

When someone sues, doesn’t seem like this coercion would stand up in court.

That statement she signed is not valid.

And they run around with the sheet of paper like it’s some great victory.
That's actually a good thing because now that document can be thrown in the shredder since one can argue all or some of the names listed were forced to sign it under duress.

If any document is signed under duress it is null and void… they accomplished nothing except maybe a criminal charge for false imprisonment for not allowing her to leave. People need to learn the law 🤦🏼♀️

I wonder how long it will take for the FBI to investigate and we make an arrest

You’d almost think @FBI would be interested in this. Guess not.

The FBI’s busy right now.
