VIDEO: St. Paul police protester declares Minnesota ‘is Africa’ — ‘We own this land!’


As anti-police protesters shut down I-94 in St. Paul, Minnesota after an officer was acquitted over the death of a black motorist, a stunning declaration was made in front of the cameras: Minnesota “is Africa.”

Photos show police officers with wooden batons attempting to keep agitators out of the road way after the jury issued a “not guilty” verdict on Friday in the case of Jeronimo Yanez, a St. Paul police officer who shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop in July 2016.
