This is something new but not surprising. BLM members blocked the car of Minneapolis City Council member Andrea Jenkins for two hours until she finally relented and signed an agreement that no BLM rioters will be prosecuted. This is a very serious crime but thanks to the SJWs, it will not be punished. The mainstream press has ignored the hostage situation completely, after all, it did not involve any white offenders.
“If this weren’t comical, it would be pathetic that not 1 mainstream #MNmedia outlet reported on a sitting #Mpls city council member being held hostage for 2 hours & coerced to sign a statement agreeing to terrorist demands before being allowed to leave,” CrimeWatch Minneapolis tweeted with a link to the live stream.”

One of the kidnappers has been identified as activist Donald Hooker Jr. Not only did she have to say no charges would be brought against the rioters, she had to agree to call for the resignation of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. Jenkins later told the mayor she only did it under duress. He accepted that excuse,
Mayor Frey said:
“I will certainly let the council vice president speak for herself. We did have a conversation and she made it very clear that it was under duress. It has nothing to do with First Amendment speech. First Amendment speech is about having the ability to express yourself, not the ability to compel somebody else under duress to take your position and intact your speech.”
He is furious Jenkins was held against her will.
“I don’t care what your politics are, Democrat, Republican, Independent. Everyone should be speaking out against this. The issue you are fighting for, you should not hold people against their will and compel them to take your position under duress. That’s fundamentally wrong, it’s anti-democratic.”
But Hooker Jr. says it’s all about holding her accountable for what he calls her inactions.

“I do believe that she knows what the people want, and she understands … what the power of the people looks like,” Hooker Jr. said.
Jenkins declined to speak with WCCO Tuesday, but she shared a statement on Facebook, saying in part that she will continue to be willing to sit down with activists, advocates and protesters to understand their policy change demands and recommendations. However, she refuses to be bullied and held hostage to accomplish that.
Jenkins who is a BLM activist did not call 911 nor did she file a police report.
