A violent protest in Minneapolis leads to the Arrest of a correspondent the Total destruction of the city and Shooting at protests in other cities

The ongoing riots over the murder of George Floyd by the hands of the police led both to the expected consequences and to the extremely shocking surprises. Obviously, the city police forces were not enough to pacify the raging mob of marauders, so hundreds of officers and the arriving National Guard cordoned off peaceful Protestants.

According to MN National Guard official information, 500 heavily armed fighters were sent to the epicenter of civilian fights with law enforcement officials.

“We have activated more than 500 soldiers to St. Paul, Minneapolis and surrounding communities,” says twitter post.

 

The information that the army arrived to localize the conflict is also confirmed by video filming of eyewitnesses.

The biggest surprise to the public was the arrest of a CNN correspondent, who was in the thick of things. The process of handcuffing was captured by a film crew, then the video shows how a policeman leads a journalist to a cordon.

The destructive mood of the US population swept not only Minneapolis but also other cities where white policemen killed black Americans. One recent high-profile accident was the assassination of Breonna Taylor in Louisville in March this year.

On that ill-fated night, a police officer entered the territory of the house where the deceased Taylor at that moment was with her nephew. Frightened for her life, the girl took a gun and accidentally appeared in the window at the moment when a policeman was standing next to it. The police officer shot eight times. Breonna Taylor died on the spot.

Now thousands of people have taken to the streets of Louisville, in memory of victims of police brutality, and in particular Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.

Even such a tragic occasion did not save the peaceful rally from violence. According to official information, when a crowd of thousands expressed sorrow over the dead at the hands of the police, 7 shots rang out.

Currently, the Police Department report that seven people got gunshot wounds. Soon after the shots, the nerves of the police could not stand it and the police tried to disperse the crowd using tear gas and rubber bullets.

The extent of the destruction in Minneapolis is currently difficult to judge. Below are a few videos that clearly show the damage caused to the city.
