Two Minnesota National Guard members on duty in the Twin Cities were injured early Sunday after being fired at in what authorities said was a drive-by shooting in Minneapolis.
The Guard said the injuries were minor. One Guard member was transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries from shattered glass; the other was treated at the scene for superficial wounds.
The Guard says the two were part of a “neighborhood security team” deployed in Minneapolis for Operation Safety Net, a multi-agency effort to provide security amid the ongoing Derek Chauvin trial. Operation Safety Net also has responded to protests over last weekend’s fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center.

It will be interesting to see what the Republican response to this will be although I doubt that it will be anything requiring a spine. The right wing is taking aim at Mad Maxine already:
We will see more of a muted outcry until the news cycle is overtaken by the latest manufactured crisis by the traitors leading the coup. Don’t forget to thank the CIA for their absolute control of the mainstream media.
