We Saved The City! Minneapolis Manufacturing Company Leaving The City After Riots

This reminds me of the Spongebob meme: We did it Patrick! We saved the city!

7-Sigma, a manufacturer and supplier of high-performance polymer and metal components and assemblies for the printing, medical, aerospace, and industrial markets that has been in Minneapolis since 1987 has said they will be moving out of the city after the riots. The owner states that the cities response to the riots was an “abject failure” as they did nothing to protect the people or businesses, going on to say that while a $30 million affordable housing complex next to his company burned down the fire department sat there and did nothing. It’s estimated that over 50 businesses have been completely destroyed with close to 50 more severely damaged. Over 1,000 commercial properties have also been destroyed. But hey, at least they saved the city from racism, and that’s all that matters.
