Per the Washington Examiner:
Thousands of people have taken to the streets of St. Paul and nearby Minneapolis to protest the killing of George Floyd, 46, an unarmed black man who died in police custody on Monday night.
Multiple videos from the scene show the officers kneeling on Floyd, one of whom crushed his neck.
“I can’t breathe,” Floyd, who never resisted arrest, told the officers. All four officers involved in Floyd’s death have been fired, but no arrests have been made as of Friday morning.
Amid the demonstrations this week, looting and property destruction have taken place. Demonstrators took over an abandoned police precinct in Minneapolis on Thursday and burned it to the ground.
The national guard has since been deployed.
