Violent protests in Minneapolis increased at a rapid pace in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, a defenseless black man by a police officer in the city.
The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked protests in a number of American cities, some of which turned violent. The governor of Minnesota recalled the state’s National Guard after four nights of clashes in Minneapolis in a move unprecedented since World War II, according to the newspaper “New York Times” American.
Floyd died after being installed by a white officer on the ground under his knee, which sparked demonstrations against police brutality and racial discrimination in cities across the United States.
