Minnesota said those arrested were from out of state. Records suggest otherwise

Minnesota officials and President Trump suggested Saturday that out-of-state agitators brought violence to last week’s tense protests over George Floyd’s death. However, jail records from the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, whose jurisdiction includes Minneapolis, show that of a total of 142 people arrested for a variety of offenses from Friday through Sunday, only 21 were from out-of-state.

A lot of protesters come from out of state because groups like ANTIFA and BLM are funded and organized by the Open Soceity Foundation who funds a lot of other left leaning "Protest" who put people in place to turn them into riots when these people get arrested their bail gets paid and because there in another state they can jump bail and mostly likely won't face repercussions so long as they don't return to the state.

"Only 21 were from out of state"... That's how the media works. The word "only" is suggesting that 21 is a small number rather than letting the reader conclude on their own. The propaganda is everywhere.

I trust these stats. I can just imagine the nerdy census takers with their pencils and clipboards getting a really reliable sample throughout the day and into the night.

The records state otherwise. The claim is completely bogus. Politicians lie.

Will CNN factcheck Trump and say it's mostly black people?
