Thousands of Protesters Gathered in Minneapolis Where an unarmed man was killed by a police officer

2020-05-27 12:57
Protesters filled the street over the death of an unarmed black man seen in a viral video lying face down in the street, gasping for air and groaning, "I can't breathe," while a police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes. The unarmed man, later identified as George Floyd, his death prompted thousands of protesters around the scene of Monday evening's deadly incident in a boisterous but peaceful rally. Many in the crowd wore facial coverings to protect against the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. But the gathering took an unruly turn around dusk as police in riot gear fired tear gas and non-lethal bean-bag rounds into the crowds while protesters hurled water bottles and other projectiles, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported. Local news footage showed some demonstrators vandalizing the outside of a police precinct station and a squad car. The unrest appeared to have dissipated after dark as rain fell.
