MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Americans are waking up to charred and glass-strewn streets in dozens of cities after another night of unrest fueled by rage over the mistreatment of African Americans at the hands of police. Tens of thousands marched peacefully through streets to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died Monday after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on his neck until he stopped breathing. But many demonstrations sank into chaos as night fell: Cars and businesses were torched. The words “I can’t breathe” were spray-painted all over buildings. A fire in a trash bin burned near the gates of the White House.
Disgraceful riots must be condemned by religious & govt leaders. Fully agree with Gov Walz: “Situation in Minneapolis is no longer about George Floyd. It’s about attacking civil society.”
