Cover picture for the articleEddie Griffin comes from the school of comedy in which spouting hyperbole and stoking emotion are all in a good night's work. Those not familiar with that style may have been unsettled by his late night set Friday at the Lumber Exchange Event Center in Minneapolis.

He had less-than-supportive words for law enforcement, including National Guard members on duty just blocks away.
