Rozin said the intent of the anarchists and neo-Nazis is not necessarily to induce race riots but rather to undermine the trust of the people with their government and they use whatever emotion is prevalent to exploit the situation and gather strength for their goals.
‘They would shoot at law enforcement and were not necessarily shooting at peaceful protesters,’ Rozin said. ‘They were trying to incite the police to shoot back and quite possibly create another tragic situation that would cause even more rioting and violence.’
When KSTP asked Rozin specifically which anarchist groups and which neo-Nazi groups were involved in the Twin Cities rioting and arson, he deferred to the federal government.
‘I would rather not say, in my position, which groups by name were involved in this activity,’ Rozin said. ‘I think that is a question better answered by the FBI and the ATF.’
