US cities burn after policeman kills black man while handcuffed


Violent protests continue to flare up in Minneapolis and St. Paul as the state responds to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck while handcuffed. 

Demonstrators have broken into a Minneapolis police headquarters, setting fires and destroying everything in sight amid unrest unleashed by the killing of a local black man at the hands of law enforcement.

The Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd precinct headquarters was breached late on Thursday night, with a raucous crowd of protesters seen filing into the building, smashing windows and some attempting to set it ablaze.


While the police presence in the area was heavy earlier in the day, it appears officers have since retreated, putting up no resistance to the break-in.
