A group of brazen thieves were recorded committing grand theft auto early Sunday evening in Minneapolis as the police were reportedly nowhere to be seen or found.

Rebecca Brannon, a non-establishment journalist who witnessed the theft firsthand, posted a tweet at 2:52 am announcing that she’d “just witnessed a guy pull out a assault rifle in the Uptown McDonald’s parking lot” and would be posting video footage of it shortly.

She wrote that after firing off one shot in the air — an act that could have easily killed someone — the hooligan began “breaking into a parked vehicle in the lot right now too.”

Seven minutes later, she posted that “they” had commandeered a vehicle and were driving off with it as the guy with the gun “is hanging out the window and just shot off again.”

In another tweet posted about 10 minutes later, she added that she’d called the police but that “no one ever showed up.”

About an hour later, she finally dropped the video footage. It was only 21 seconds, and she admitted that she’d had to record it surreptitiously.

“I pretended not to see or dare look their way & pretended to eat. And I’ve seen a lot and experienced a lot especially during the riots of 2020 – but I had no idea where that gun was going to be pointed… it’s not a good feeling,” Brannon wrote.

This stunning crime comes amid a nationwide crime spree in primarily Democrat-controlled cities like Minneapolis.

Minneapolis, arguably the home of the “defund the police” movement, has in particular faced nearly nonstop car thefts.

Reportedly produced by a local resident, the following map purports to show all the car thefts that have occurred between the start of 2020 and November 2021:

Minneapolis has also faced “smash-and-grab” crime sprees.

At least two Best Buy stores in the Minneapolis metropolitan area were hit just last weekend, one by a group of 20 to 30 people, and the other by a group of “10 to 12 adults AND children,” as reported by Twin Cities Pioneer Press.

Even the media have admitted these these crime sprees are hurting small businesses:

The one common denominator is usually Democrat governance. Cities where shoplifting and car thefts have spiked tend to be run by Democrat legislators — particularly the type with a record of demeaning the police and catering to criminals.

Which is why, despite the police reportedly not showing up early Sunday morning in Minneapolis, critics say they aren’t the ones to blame:

Brannon was lucky the thieves she’d spotted left her alone. Also on the rise in primarily Democrat-controlled cities is murder.

Last weekend, college student Sam Collington, 21, was murdered by a longtime criminal deviant who’d repeatedly been let off the hook for his crimes by local prosecutor Larry Krasner, according to veteran Philly journalist Ralph Cipriano.

Writing for Big Trial, Cipriano revealed that Collington had himself naively been one of Krasner’s biggest supporters.

Meanwhile, another college student, Davide Giri, was stabbed to death last Thursday in New York City, another Democrat stronghold.
