Arrests as Hundreds Protest at Mall of America

USA Today, December 21, 2014

About 25 people were arrested during a police brutality protest at Mall of America Saturday afternoon, according to mall officials.


Official attendance figures weren’t immediately available, but the group Black Lives Matter Minneapolis had more than 3,000 people confirm on their Facebook page that they would attend the event, billed as a peaceful gathering.

Protesters chanted “Black lives matter” and “No justice, no peace” as they gathered in the mall’s rotunda. There was also silence as demonstrators staged a die-in.


Mall officials shut down all of the escalators in the rotunda, and some stores in the area closed their gates. The mall enhanced security, and police in riot gear were present.

After about a half hour, most demonstrators peacefully left the rotunda area–many holding their hands in the air–and left the mall. Others migrated to a shopping area and occupied two levels. A small “die-in” with people lying on the floor was staged in front of several stores.

    Do I see a bunch of race traitors in the crowd?

    • Alexandra1973

      Sadly, yes.

      And they have the nerve to call US ignorant.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Because we live in an era where feelings and emotions trump facts, data and empirical evidence.

        They also have the backing of the media, government and academia top to bottom, while those same institutions are hell-bent on destroying us.

    • BulgAryan

      useful idiots

    • ElComadreja

      Blacks have always had white race traitor scum organizing them and egging them on. You don’t really think they have the brains to do much beyond riot and loot do you? It goes back to John Brown and Harper’s Ferry and probably earlier.

    • Cid Campeador

      Of course you do! They’re sucking up probably hoping that Blacks won’t murder and rape THEM.

    There was a horrible (depending on one’s disposition towards such matters) crime (perhaps mentioned, I’ve been away) in Cleveland where a suspected black perp shot up a house full of black people, shooting six and killing five. Besides some local “black responsibility groups” (membership: half dozen), there’s been nary a peep even locally.

    So anyway, more specifically “Black lives that white traitors can use to beat up other whites matter, while other black lives do not”; I suppose that doesn’t fit very well on a sign though.

    • Anglokraut

      It’s Cleveland–the only unusual thing in that whole story is that this Negro had an 80% fatality rate for the people he managed to hit.

      • Speedy Steve

        He must have been a token NRA member.

    • archer

      Haven’t seen that one in the papers yet, wonder if I ever will, don’t fit the present narrative.

      • evilsandmich

        I only noticed it because of articles saying “police need your help”. Really? A guy empties a gun into a house full of people and you have NO suspects? It really says something about black neighborhoods when someone can blast a pistol like that and no one notices (or bothers to notice). I live in white, working class neighborhood and if I shot once at squirrel with some low caliber weapon I’ll guarantee you that the police would be at my door in about thirty seconds.

        • Cid Campeador

          I have a relative who teaches in a pre-school in Atlantic City. She actually has heard gun shots during the day while in her classroom.
          Apparently “Black Lives Matter” only to White people.

    • ElComadreja

      Life is cheap to blacks. Their lives don’t even matter to them.

      • Cid Campeador

        They don’t care if they die. That’s what makes them so dangerous and is why they don’t belong in a what passes for a “Civilized” society.

  • Easyrhino

    “black lives matter.”

    But anyone who says “Whites lives matter” is a racist Nazi.

    • Albert

      Wear a t-shirt with that slogan on it in NY and a snowball in hell would have a better chance than you.

      • ElComadreja

        NYC is swiftly degenerating back to the hell hole it was in the 70’s and 80’s. Couldn’t happen to a nicer place. Let the “wilding” begin.

        • Cid Campeador

          Midtown was very safe some years ago. Every corner had at least one cop on watch.

    • Cid Campeador

      Yes. We’re still taking the hits for something in which we had no part.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Others migrated to a shopping area and occupied two levels.
      Or hit the food court and got to work on really killing themselves with fatty junk food.

    • PvtCharlieSlate

      Of course black lives matter.
      They matter very much … in exactly the same way that cockroach lives matter.

  • Samuel_Morton

    These protesters were shouting “who do you protect…who do you serve” in officers faces on Saturday afternoon…while at the same time a black man was blowing out the brains of two police officers in revenge for a false narrative.

    Do you think any of these folks have any pangs of regret?

    • Speedy Steve

      Folks? I think the correct word is ‘savges.’

      But about malls: there’s a website called deadmalls[dot]com which catalogues a shopping phenomenon suitable only for civilized White people. As multi-culturism becomes stronger, malls will be replaced with open-to-the-elements town centers.

      • Barry Hussein 0bola

        The more we acquiesce to savagery, the more depravity and criminality we will end up having to endure. God helps us not sink to the levels of South Africa.

      • Cid Campeador

        You’re right. I see it more and more. I think that the demise of indoor Malls is due to the mobs of Black “YOUTH” who steal and vandalize and the Psycho mass shooters who like to choose that particular venue and who give the Proggies another chance to go after the NRA.
        The conspiracy theorists who beat the drum about government “mind control” used on these mass shooters in order to create a total anti- firearm mentality on the part of the populace used to make me laugh. Lately, I’m not laughing.
        The military captured lots of Gestapo and SS files that contained lots of INTEL regarding their experiments with “Gedankenkontrolle”.

    • Cid Campeador

      “F— dat White Bitch. She don’t mean nuffin’ to me.” This was the comment made by either Le Maricus Davidson or Letalvus Cobbins in reference to Channon Christian.
      These entities have no regret. Channon and CHristopher’s families are STILL waiting for real justice that will likely never be realized.
      The only Justice is the death of all those beasts.

  • Publius Pompilius Quietus

    If these protesters really cared about black lives, they would be protesting black crime, because that is the cause of all but a few black deaths.

    • ElComadreja

      They just hate whites. Asians and non-negro Hispanics will do also.

  • superlloyd

    Idiot white drones and negroes. The dumb and dumber speak with one voice but can’t formulate any critical thinking capacity between them.

  • LHathaway

    A friend of mine was just telling me that Minneapolis is a wonderful city.

    • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

      It is filled with gays.

    • USN Veteran

      Do some research. Minneapolis is a hotbed of black on white crime that (of course) isn’t reported in the media. There’s a huge Somali Muslim population there in addition to our own home grown savages.

  • bubo

    White liberal women trying to brow beat us because blacks cannot understand and follow simple rules of society. Two groups of people that have likely never been told NO! in their lifetimes need it very, very badly.

  • Speedy Steve

    That’s an awful lot of Disingenuous White Libtards there. Did they bus in the tokens from Chi-congo?

    • mike j

      They could bus them from St. Paul. Ever watch K9 Cops on Animal Planet? Take a daring guess as to the race of all of the suspects.

  • Luca

    Because there is so much “Diversity” among the protesters, it is clear to me this was organized by leftist elites. They tolerate each other for now, for a common cause, the destruction of the White, Christian, Male, hetero, Conservative power base.

    • evilsandmich

      They make a lot of noise and their tools in the press give them good print, but they’re really fringe, even in the dystopian racial stew of modern America.

  • Conrad

    IF black lives matter, maybe, just maybe, they should stop being criminals.

    • Please lower your expectations.

    • Irishgirl

      Hey! That’s white man’s logic. They don’t be wantin’ any of that up in here!

    • ElComadreja

      You’ve got a better chance of seeing Elvis.

    • Dave West

      Not a chance! That would actually make sense.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Those white libs should be ashamed of protesting for black causes. I do not think blacks will side with whites and ever protest for their safety and also have banners that say ‘White Lives Matter.”

    • Dave West


    • exlib93

      What does not occur to them is that people’s jobs matter, and by acting up in a mall, puts jobs at risk. The dwindling amount of malls are fighting for their survival. I am never surprised at their irresponsible behavior. The white protestors will regret this one day, when they’re betrayed, as my staunch liberal parents were in the 1970’s, hence my name.

      • evilsandmich

        They always think that someone else is the useful idiot.

  • dd121

    Keep up the good work, “protesters”, a few whites may emerge from their deep sleep.

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    Maybe they should inform the blacks in St Paul who do the vast majority of the murders every year.

    • Speedy Steve

      No no no! All those negroes on trial in court, and locked up in the slammer are railroaded by racist policemen and DAs, defended by incompetent juju attorneys, and found guilty by corrupt judges looking to fill prisons. The Man has stacked the deck against the sweet, pious, innocent, simple-minded tap-dancers and rappers.
      /sarc off

  • Maybe one of the silver linings of that other thing that happened Saturday afternoon is that it’ll put the kibosh on stuff like this.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    About 25 people were arrested

    I’m surprised anyone was arrested and I expect the cases to be tossed out; meanwhile police risk their lives and careers dealing with these jerks.

    The Bolsheviks are behind the scene, making good use of the usual useful idiots.

    What the idiots don’t understand is that the Revolution won’t turn out the way they think it will.

    These ignorant protesters will be the first ones shot, as were all useful idiots before them

    The title said “MOA” protest I thought is was spelled “mau”…?

  • paul kersey

    They are not even black it looks like a bunch of white weirdo loser types and the gay crowd.

      lots of rhinoplasty and orthodontia. Gauche de luxe.

  • A Freespeechzone

    WHY in the hell don’t mall owners take a strong, direct stand against this tyranny–it IS private property.

    It’s obvious that LE will do little or nothing to stop these ‘protesters’ who are becoming more embolden because MOST in America ignore them, their BS message and tactics–so, WHY don’t mall owners hire ‘kick ass’ security that will do whatever is LEGAL and necessary to remove this vermin from PRIVATE PROPERTY?

    Law Enforcement, when Obama is through with them, will have no power to stop lawlessness—which will embolden more violent and disruptive ‘protesting’.

    It’s only a matter of time before there are deaths at the hands of this vermin.

  • MannyR

    “Black lives matter.”…..pull out M4 start shooting blindly into the crowd. If only, if only. A man can dream

      Damn right we do, and when the SHTF, America will find out how may people are sick of this crap.

      • Speedy Steve

        I get the odd feeling that our feminized, sodomized, affirmative action military will not have the guts to prevent the bloodshed caused by sixtysomething pissed-off YTs.

    Nothing a few dozen tear gas canisters couldn’t handle…

  • LACountyRedneck

    “Black lives matter.” Hahahahaha…….really?

    Come on, man. To whom?

    • newscomments70

      to white liberals, I suppose, and left wing politicians.

    • Speedy Steve

      Corrupt politicians, social workers, brewers of 211, Schlitz Malt Liquor, and Four Loko to name a few.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    I feel bad for the Mall of America. It used to be a nice (though expensive) place to shop and was filled mostly with white people. Increasingly however, it is filled with blacks and Somalis who come in on the light rail from Minneapolis and hang out there all day without buying anything. Often they steal from the stores or commit robberies and assaults against legitimate shoppers. This is driving away paying customers and the MoA is suffering for it. I myself don’t go there anymore because I’m still worried about a mall hostage situation like the one in Kenya (not to mention that the prices at the mall keep going up, probably to cover the lost profit from stolen items).

    The MoA tried hard to discourage these protests; since it is privately owned, it has a right to not allow them to take place on its premises, and it told them so when the protesters started posting online about their plans. But they decided that that was mean and racist and showed up anyway.

    Here’s some pictures I found online of warnings the mall gave to the protesters on the day of the protests.

  • KenelmDigby

    Just look at those silly white old cows leading the protest.

    • 1G25

      Minnesota. Says it all.

      • Speedy Steve

        What is up with Swedes and Norwegians?

  • John Barleycorn

    Police should arrest the WHITE PROTESTERS ONLY,
    just to keep the arrest percentages more equal and to help nullify white privilege . . THEN lets see if there would be some dissension within the protester pecking order ..
    and accusations of racism against the white minority protesters .

    • Speedy Steve

      Get the cow with the bullhorn first. Look for the type with short hair and big spectacles. Then play spot the juju.

  • Earl Turner

    Keep on winning those hearts and minds, guys. With every protest, you send more and more to join us in the ranks of those who can see.

    • John Jackson

      Exactly. I think the only “awareness” these protests are causing is just how F’d up people on the left are.

  • Huggiebear

    Why won’t they just say, “Lives matter”? Because to them white lives don’t matter. That’s pure racism and the USA has swallowed the poison bait,

  • Snazzy Snook

    Negros and libtards live DON’T matter ..

    • ElComadreja

      I’ll second that.

  • Lkoehn

    I would be first in line to sign a petition that black lives matter but why do blacks not live like they matter? It is not police brutality, it is black criminality that curse them as a group.

  • USN Veteran

    Dear protestors: Your die-in isn’t convincing enough. To add authenticity, please actually kill yourselves.

  • Herman

    Black lives matter.
    Only if they are killed by a white person.
    Even blacks don’t care about black-on-black crime. They pretty much accept it.

    • Speedy Steve

      They pretty much cause it. Something else to complain about mmm, mmmm, mmm. Gnome sane? Merry Christmas, Herman.

  • Julius Caesar

    “Black lives matter”
    No, they don’t.

  • Speedy Steve

    Umm, about that … it won’t happen in this lifetime.

  • Fr. John+

    “Black Lives Matter, Minneapolis”

    Yeah, right. Demographic data clearly show there is More crime, more criminals, more liberals, and more truancy in the school district, witnessed to, by a recent exodus by yet (another!) Black,Female Superintendant of the Mpls. Public Schools, (and an admission by the Princicpal of one school that it is the Somali Muslim population that are causing most (if not all) of the problems in their school- yet will the ‘Red’ Mpls Star, call this out as ‘news’? Hell, no.)

    Black lives matter— in Mogadishu. But in Scandic/Germanic Minnesota?
    Not one whit…
