Yesterday Sunday marked the sixth day of the nationwide protest in at least 140 cities across the United States in anger of police brutality, more recently the death of #GeorgeFloyd an unarmed black man killed by one of their own.
People of Denver Colorado laid down with hands folded behind their backs for nine whole minutes in the open sun chanting “I CAN’T BREATHE” in memory of the slain George Floyd, 46 who was killed by now fired and detained Minneapolis police officer #DerekChauvin who knelt on George’s neck for nine whole minutes leading to his death – which sparked open condemnation and global outrage.
Open tear gas was fired near the White House, the cops running cars into the crowd to dissuade protesters, police cars were destroyed and buildings vandalized Sunday night as anger and anguish mounts. There was also reports of lootings.
The White House went dark, turning off almost all of its external lights, the New York Times reports.
The Miami Police later yesterday bowed to pressure, kneeling in front of angry protesters begging for forgiveness on behalf of the conduct of their colleague Derek Chauvin.
