In the days after George Floyd’s death, surveillance videos showed a man breaking windows at a Minneapolis auto store. Informally dubbed “Umbrella Man,” he was dressed in black, sporting a gas mask and carrying an opened umbrella. The May 27 video showed him casually breaking the windows of an AutoZone with a hammer, as some protestors asked him to stop. Before that, police say, he had spray painted “free (expletive) for everyone zone” on the store. “Those cops will come for you if you’re pulling that crap,” a man can be heard saying on the clip.
