The murder happened hours after the city attempted to take down George Floyd Square, a memorial site created and maintained by the community.
The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force had previously executed activist Michael Reinoehl without warning or trying to arrest him, an execution Trump bragged about.
Before Winston Smith was murdered, he had posted on social media of his whereabouts, and police were staked out at the location as heard on police scanners. After the murder, the media spread lies that Winston was a murder suspect and later retracted it.
Winston Smith was outspoken on the issue of community defense.
Winston Smith was 32 years old when he was murdered by Minneapolis police. He was a beloved comedian, musician and a revolutionary. He left behind three young children.
Smith’s family held a vigil on top of the parking ramp Friday evening, laying flowers and candles.
Protests began Friday afternoon and continued into the early hours of Saturday morning in Uptown, Minneapolis. During rush hour, protesters blocked Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street. As the evening continued some demonstrators used dumpsters and cars to block off West Lake Street and Girard Avenue South. Numerous fires were lit in the area.
