“Light Em Up!”: Police Shoot Paint Canisters At People On Their Front Porch

William James

Before firing, police yell, "Get inside" and “Light em up”.

In this video, security forces (purportedly the National guard and the Minneapolis Police Department) sweep through a residential street in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis. (Vox's Aaron Rupar confirms this)

In the clip, you can hear security forces yell "Get inside". The author of this video continues recording, however.

The security forces then say, “Light em up”, indicating they are about to fire paint canisters at the person recording them, which they do.
