Minneapolis police said a link had been established between the riots during the Black Lives Matters protests and the extremist White Supremacy group, the BBC reported.
The protests began after the assassination of unarmed black George Floyd in May this year and quickly escalated into pogroms. The so-called “Umbrella Man” played a significant role in the arson and destruction of private property. Minneapolis police say the Umbrella Man played a key role in turning peaceful demonstrations into violent clashes with police. The video, in which a masked man with an umbrella shatters the shop windows, quickly gained popularity. It was the Umbrella Man who first set fire to Minneapolis, triggering the outbreak of violent protests. A local police investigation uncovered a direct link between the Umbrella Man and the extremist White Supremacy group.
