    MINNEAPOLIS (Gray News) - Police say a man captured on surveillance video breaking windows at a south Minneapolis auto parts store in the days after George Floyd’s death is a Hell’s Angels member who was bent on stirring up social unrest.

    The man was dubbed “Umbrella Man” for his all-black get-up. His actions soon led to an arson fire May 27 that police say was the first of several that transformed peaceful protests into chaos. The fires spread and caused an estimated $500 million in damage.

    “The actions of this person created an atmosphere of hostility and tension … this individual’s sole aim was to incite violence,” said Minneapolis police, as cited by WCCO.

    The Star Tribune reports a Minneapolis police arson investigator wrote in a search warrant affidavit police identified the 32-year-old suspect through an emailed tip last week.


    The search warrant says the man is a known associate of the Aryan Cowboys, a prison gang out of Minnesota and Kentucky. The tip claims he wanted to “sow discord and racial unrest,” WCCO reports.

    Police have also linked him to a June incident in Stillwater, Minnesota, where a Muslim woman was harassed by a motorcycle club wearing Aryan Cowboy leather vests.

    A Minneapolis police spokesman tells The Associated Press the investigation is open and active.

    I am not surprised because they are always cowards in large groups that are looking to start trouble.

    I thought he was supposed to be a Minneapolis police officer. That's what the BLM people were saying early on. Deflecting responsibility.

    Just because someone breaks a few windows doesn't make ANYONE follow through with mob rioting and looting. Just a convenient scapegoat after the fact.

    Yep. The left is desperately trying to deflect blame from themselves. It's quite comical.

    I am going to disagree because the claim is being made by LEOS.

    “The Star Tribune reports a Minneapolis police arson investigator wrote in a search warrant affidavit police identified the 32-year-old suspect through an emailed tip last week.

    The search warrant says the man is a known associate of the Aryan Cowboys, a prison gang out of Minnesota and Kentucky. “

    It is a bit puzzling. He is on video smashing a private business windows, but that is not enough.

    It's not anything to do with bikers. It's the paper thin horse manure screen they think will cover the truth. Every single individual who took part in rioting, arson, and looting is responsible.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

    I called Trump out when he tried to use that asinine line of reasoning; thankfully, he came out the next day and called a spade a spade. The videos don't lie. That one white guy isn't the one taking 2x4s to whitey cops and family-run business owners. Totally fake news.

    Only in liberal lalaland will reporters stand in front of burning businesses asserting "peaceful protest" while liberal "leaders" blame whitey for the blacks burning minority-owned business to steal some Nikes. Absolutely disgusting alternate reality that only stupid liberals believe.

    No wonder 6 Russian kids ("troll farm") who spent $32K in Facebook ads did what Hillary, the DNC, and nearly $1 billion couldn't do...trick the stupid kids into voting for Trump and "stealing the election." They really are as dumb as they sound.

    I agree. They should pursue those involves, and he is involved. Clearly, he sticks out because of his actions and overall appearance.

    Not only did he break windows, he personally twisted the arms of thousands of people and forced them to participate in rioting and looting.
