Gun-toting members of the Boogaloo movement are showing up at protests
It was an alert from the heart of the raging protests in Minneapolis, posted on an online forum by a fellow member of the Boogaloo movement, a loosely knit group of heavily armed, anti-government extremists. Boogaloo members appear to hold conflicting ideological views with some identifying as anarchists and others rejecting formal titles. Gun-toting Boogaloo members also have appeared at George Floyd protests in Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Atlanta and elsewhere, according to The Washington Post. Known for sporting Hawaiian shirts and arriving to public protests heavily armed, the decentralized Boogaloo movement -- sometimes referred to as the "Boogaloo Bois" -- is often associated with the far-right. On the streets of Minneapolis, Teeter said his group hasn't always been "kitted out" with guns drawn.
