US Cities Rocked by Protests Over Custody Death of Black Man in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS – Violent protests against the death in custody of an African-American man in Minneapolis spread to dozens of US cities on Friday despite the arrest of an officer-involved in the incident.
Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, were shot as they tried to demonstrate clearly against a 20-hour curfew imposed after consecutive nights of violent protests.
The incident occurred in the fifth district of the city, but demonstrators gathered in several parts of the city, including the district of Lake Street, where a police station was burnt down the night before.
On Friday, small fires were dispersed and other stores were broken into.
The Pentagon has taken the rare step of ordering the military to place military police units on standby for deployment in Minneapolis, sources told the Associated Press. The move followed President Donald Trump’s threat to send troops to the city if the arson and looting continued.
On Friday, crowds gathered around the White House to protest the death of George Floyd and the president’s response.
As violence broke out in Minneapolis on Thursday, Mr. Trump tweeted, “When looting begins, filming begins.”
He then stated that his comments had been misinterpreted. “Frankly, it means that when there is looting, people get shot and die,” he said.
Protesters threw bottles and other objects at officers wearing riot gear behind barricades around the White House. The pepper spray was used to disperse the crowd, and police and protesters fought over the barricades.
Protests resumed on Friday after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter in connection with the death of 46-year-old Floyd arrested Monday on suspicion of using a counterfeit bank note. Video footage of the arrest showed Mr. Chauvin pinning Floyd’s neck with his knee for several minutes, despite pleas from the man that he could not breathe.
In Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and other cities, thousands of protesters displayed signs saying, “He said I couldn’t breathe. Justice for George. “They chanted” No justice, no peace “and” Say his name. George Floyd.”
A peaceful protest in New York City turned into chaos as night fell, as protesters clashed with officers, destroyed police vehicles and burned down.
Activists in Brooklyn who had left Manhattan chanted insults against officers lined up outside the Barclays Center sports arena and bombarded them with bottles of water. A video posted on social media shows officers using batons and pushing protesters down as they arrest people and clear the streets.
Protesters shook a police van, torched it, scrawled graffiti on its burnt carcass, and torched it a second time as police withdrew from the area. A few kilometers away, the protesters used a club to hit another police vehicle.
Police loaded demonstrators handcuffed into city buses lined up on Atlantic Avenue, closing the main thoroughfare. The police department said several police officers were injured.
“We have a long night ahead of us in Brooklyn,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“Our only goal is to defuse this situation and bring people home safely. There will be a full review of what happened tonight. We never want to see another night like this.”
The governor of Georgia declared a state of emergency on Saturday and mobilized 500 national guards “to protect people and property in Atlanta” after protests in the state capital turned violent on Friday.
Protesters smashed police cars and vandalized CNN headquarters, spray painted the logo of the news station outside and smashed windows. Some demonstrators set fire to a police car, shot police officers with air pistols and threw bricks.
