Minnesota AG Keith Ellison is fine with his civilians attacking police officers in his state. However, Ellison does not want his citizens to take any actions against the National Guard. That is because Ellison knows that the National Guard posses much more legal authority, when defending themselves against the rioters that are destroying Minneapolis then the rioters whom Ellison is advocating for.
Keith Ellison tells George Floyd rioters to direct anger at police and not the National Guard
By Washington Examiner, May 30, 2020
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison told people rioting in the streets over the death of George Floyd to direct their frustration toward the Minneapolis Police Department rather than the National Guard.
“I’d like everyone to recognize the fact that the National Guard just a week ago was administering COVID-19 tests to help people,” Ellison said during a press conference Friday. “The presence you see on the street, don’t react to them the way you might react to the Minneapolis Police Department. It’s not the same group. They have different leadership, different authority, and their job is to try to bring peace and calm back again. Please remember that this is not the group that you associate with unfair conduct.”

Ellison went on to say that riots such as the one unfolding in Minneapolis are how the “unheard get heard.”
“Don’t just dismiss that and ignore it and relegate it to just criminality and bad behavior,” he said. “Actually ask yourself what’s going on there.”
Minneapolis erupted into riots this week following a video that surfaced online in which a white police officer knelt on the throat of a black man lying on the ground as onlookers were heard begging the officer to stop. Floyd, the man on the ground, lost consciousness and died.
