- Commentary

“In the course of clearing the streets and restoring order at Lake Street and Snelling Avenue, four people were arrested by State Patrol troopers, including three members of a CNN crew,” said the State Police. “The three were released once they were confirmed to be members of the media.”

"This sh*t is all f*ckin' over!" she shouted before saying it again, punctuating each word with additional fury. "This. Sh*t. Is. F*ckin'. Over! This sh*t's over. This sh*t's over. This sh*t's over. This sh*t's over. This sh*t's over. This sh*t's over. F*ck this sh*t! Not doin' it. I'm not doin' it. No, I'm not doin' it. We don't want this anymore."
