    TLI Instructor, Security Expert: Anarchists, Extremists Organized to Heighten Civil Unrest in Twin Cities

    TLI faculty member and security expert Michael Rozin — who led a team of former Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, Green Berets and CIA agents to protect companies and assist the government during recent civil unrest in the Twin Cities that followed the killing of George Floyd — said that organized anarchist and extremist groups were behind the majority of fires and gunshots during the worst three-day period of the unrest.

    "The anarchists, the extremist groups, were operating in an organized fashion," Rozin said. "They were operating in what almost appears to be an asymmetric warfare manner."

    Rozin teaches in the M.S. in Security Technologies (MSST) program.
