On July 4, police killed Ricardo Torres in Olivia, Minnesota. Three days later, provocateurs in a truck rally disrupted his memorial vigil.

Family and friends from Minnesota and Texas gathered to remember Ricardo Torres at the site of his death. Mourners remembered Torres as a fun-loving jokester who loved whistling and fishing. Later, a truck convoy rolled up, responding to a flier on social media that predicted a “riot.”
