VIDEO: 8 Arrested as Minneapolis Police Clear 4th Precinct Protest Camp

Minneapolis police began removing Black Lives Matter protesters from the 4th Precinct around 4 a.m. Thursday morning, using bulldozers and buckets of water to break up the demonstrators that had been camped out there since the shooting death of Jamar Clark on Nov. 15.

Officers handed out fliers telling the demonstrators they had 10 minutes to collect their things and leave. Following the notification, the Minneapolis Fire Department began extinguishing the protestors’ campfires with buckets of water as police and city crews hauled away items on the street.

Most demonstrators left the scene peacefully. Chief Janeé Harteau said police arrested 8 people without incident for not complying with the officers' order to leave, Fox 9 TV reports.
