Black Lives Matter protestors surrounded the car of a black, transgender city council vice president Andrea Jenkins at a Pride event in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and held Jenkins “hostage” until the official agreed to sign a list of demands which included dropping the criminal charges against rioters.

Fox News reported, “The incident happened Sunday afternoon while Jenkins was attending the Taking Back Pride event in Loring Park, as the video shows her sitting in the front passenger seat of a white vehicle being blocked by a group of extreme Black Lives Matter demonstrators, many with their cellphones out recording.”

In a video uploaded to Facebook by violent “activist” Donald Hooker Jr., Jenkins can be heard telling someone on the phone, “It might be three days before I get out of here.”

“Hooker shows the camera a list of ‘The People’s Demands’ that Jenkins must agree to before she’s free to leave,” Fox News reported. “The handwritten note calls for the formation of a ‘community police accountability commission,’ to ‘reopen all the cases of murderers,’ to ‘drop the charges for all 646 protesters and other protesters for 2020,’ and to ‘make all information on the murder of Winston Smith available.’ It also demands the resignation of Mayor Jacob Frey and to ‘leave George Floyd Square alone. PERIOD.’”

Fox News added, “The protesters shouted each demand and asked if they had Jenkins’ support. She agreed, ‘Yes,’ to the first few before shaking her head when protesters called for Frey’s resignation. The crowd shouted again until Jenkins finally agreed and she asked, ‘Do you understand English? I already said it.’”

Jenkins released a statement addressing the incident on Tuesday, writing, “On Sunday afternoon, while attending a Pride event in Loring Park, something I’ve done on the last weekend in June for the past 20 plus years, I was verbally attacked, berated and held ‘hostage’ against my will by a large group of angry protesters.”

The statement added, “I continue to be willing to sit down with activists, advocates and protesters to understand their policy change demands and recommendations. I refused however to be bullied and held hostage to somehow accomplish that. Every citizen of this City has a right to bring forward their concerns, but no citizen has the right to detain and coerce anyone to do anything, that includes elected officials.”

    Karma is a b—h. Maybe she understands now what her idiot policies have done to the people of MPLS who don’t have some cushy political post. I bet she wanted to call the police…..

    Can’t foresee the creation of mob tyranny whilst focusing on individual acts of tyranny by a few policemen that probably have PTSD from dealing with scofflaws for life ?
