8 Arrests Made as #4thPrecinctShutDown Eradicated in Early Morning Raid

After 18 days of occupying North Minneapolis’ 4th precinct in the wake of the ‘execution style’ murder of Jamar Clark on November 15, 2015, the Minneapolis Police have raided the encampment.

The night of December 2nd was peaceful, as groups organized around campfires enjoying each others company, having deep conversations, and relaxing to some music.

During the early morning of December 3rd, a little before 4 a.m., the everlasting imminent threat of a raid on the occupation of the 4th precinct was realized.

Here is a video on the destruction of the tent city that some called “Clarkville” in reference to Jamar Clark:

Dozens of City of Minneapolis vehicles and Minneapolis Police cars descended upon the #Justice4Jamar protests. Several dispersal orders were given to more than 50 demonstrators as the police surrounded the camp. Unicorn Riot was live from the encampment. A total of seven people were detained and released, and one was ticketed.

Black Lives Matter Mpls has called for a #Justice4Jamar eviction rally on Thursday at 4pm at City Hall and is, by most accounts, organized and steadfast to continue the protests to get #Justice4Jamar.
