For the third straight day, people in Minneapolis have been protesting in a call of action to have the four police officers who killed George Floyd brought up on murder charges. Pics and videos of last night’s events inside…

 

 

Protestors got inside the 3rd Precinct Minneapolis Police Station and set it ablaze. It’s the police station where the four police officers who were fired for the death of George Floyd were stationed before they were fired.

Former police officer Derek Chauvin and three other former officers - Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng – were fired a day after George Floyd was murdered. While in handcuffs, Derek pressed his knee into the back of George’s neck for an entire nine minutes, which resulted in George's death. The incident was caught on video, shared on social media, and instantly went viral.

Raging protests have been going on in Minneapolis as a call to action to have the four former police officers brought up on murder charges.

Also, there's a clip going viral of a man dressed in tactical gear - believed to be white - who was spotted breaking windows at a Minneapolis AutoZone. The store was later vandalized and burned, along with a Wendy’s restaurant and an under-construction affordable housing complex. For some reason, people believe he's a white police officer on the Minneapolis Police Department. Some believe the alleged police officer or agent provocateur is trying to rile up protests and fuel a riot.

Even Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is questioning the alleged protester.

 

 

"This man doesn’t look like any civil rights protestor I have ever seen. Looks like a provocateur,” Keith Ellison tweeted.

 

Now, the Minnesota National Guard has moved in:

 

 

 

 

 

Early this morning, a black CNN journalist and his crew were arrested. Omar Jimenez was handcuffed and led away by police while reporting live from Minneapolis. According to a reporter from the New York Times, police said Omar and his producer were arrested because they were asked to move and did not.

 

 

 

 

They have since been released and are back reporting on the protests.

 

 

Tim Walz - Governor of Minnesota - said the arrests were unacceptable and apologized:

 

And get this...

 

 

Apparently, George Floyd and former officer Derek Chauvin knew each other.
