Infamous 'Umbrella Man' Who Started the Riots in Minneapolis Has Been Identifed!

There has been quite an amazing discovery made in regards to the Minneapolis riots which started on May 27, 2020.

If you saw the videos of when the riots started vandalizing and setting the Autozone ablaze, you may recall seeing an individual who has been known up until now only as the "Umbrella Man".

The Umbrella Man is the individual who was seen breaking glass at the Autozone which led to the riots. There were even protesters who were trying to get him to stop. But once mob mentality sets in, there is no stopping it.

In case you've forgotten, here is a video showing the man who started the riots, to begin with.

Now that man has been identified. They have not revealed his name but he is a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.

Fox News reported,

Nicknamed “Umbrella Man” for his all-black getup that included a hood, gas mask and black umbrella, police said the man’s actions led to arson -- the first of several that sent peaceful protests into chaos.

Police identified the 32-year-old suspect through a tip last week. Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder told the Associated Press Tuesday he could not confirm the name of the person involved, but said the investigation remains open and active.

“This was the first fire that set off a string of fires and looting throughout the precinct and the rest of the city,” Minneapolis police arson investigator Erika Christensen wrote in a search warrant affidavit this week, according to the Star Tribune.

The riots spread to other parts of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and caused an estimated $500 million in damage. At least two people died — one a man who was fatally shot at a Minneapolis pawnshop and another whose burned body was found in the ruins of another pawnshop.

The Hells Angels have a motto, "When we do right, nobody remembers. When we do wrong, nobody forgets." This has certainly held true because the damage that they have cause has echoed throughout the country.
