‘White Silence Equals Violence’: Black Lives Matter Blocks Trains at Twins Home Opener

Several Minnesota Twins fans had their train to Target Field station blocked Monday by several Black Lives Matter activists, who had formed a human chain.

Videos posted to the Black Lives Matter Minneapolis account showed the rancor as local police officers attempting to disperse and, ultimately, arresting the chanting protesters.

The activists could be heard yelling various chants, including, “No justice, no peace. Prosecute the police” and “White silence equal violence.”

In addition to blocking light rails, protesters reportedly blocked several streets near Target Center.

Monday’s was merely the latest disruption carried out by the Minneapolis Black Lives Matter group in an effort to draw attention the police-involved shooting death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark.

Last month, a prosecutor announced that Officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze would not be charged for Clark’s death.

An investigation revealed that Officer Schwarze shot Clark after the suspect had grabbed Officer Ringgenberg’s firearm during a brief scuffled with the young man. The November shooting was deemed an act of self-defense.
