New video footage shows several police officers slashing car tires during Minneapolis protests without provocation.
In one clip, cops clad in military-style uniforms can be seen stabbing tires during a protest led near the state’s I-35 West highway. But in a more puzzling turn, additional footage shows a parking lot full of slashed tires at the local Kmart.
