‘It’s Real Ugly’: Protesters Clash With Minneapolis Police After George Floyd’s Death

May 30, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There was chaos and destruction in Minneapolis Tuesday night as police officers and protesters clashed over the death of George Floyd.

The outrage began with a video showing police arresting the 46-year-old in south Minneapolis Monday night. “I can’t breathe! Please, the knee on my neck,” Floyd is heard saying in the video. Thousands flooded the streets at that same intersection Tuesday afternoon to protest Floyd’s death. They packed the area, but were also spread out to try to be socially distant.
