Dozens of cities across the United States were left early Sunday to assess the toll of a grim night of violent riots that left at least three dead, dozens injured, hundreds arrested and buildings and businesses in charred ruins as protests over the death of a black Minneapolis man in police custody continued for a fifth day.

Mayors of major cities imposed curfews, governors in nearly a dozen states deployed the National Guard in a desperate bid to stem the mayhem, chaos and wreckage. Though the incident that touched off the rioting occurred Monday in Minnesota and led to a cop being swiftly charged with murder, the damage seemed to culminate Saturday night and spanned from coast to coast. In Brooklyn, N.Y., at least 200 people were arrested and “countless” officers were hurt. In Beverly Hills, Calif., shops along the storied Rodeo Drive were looted as a crowd estimated at more than 2,000 people chanted “Eat the rich!’

The protests were sparked by the May 25 death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis cop, Derek Chauvin, was seen kneeling on his neck in a viral video. Chauvin has been fired and charged with third-degree murder, and the U.S. Justice Department is investigating the case. Crowds across the nation have seized on the racially charged incident to demand justice, but the protests have turned increasingly violent, culminating in a weekend of carnage.

In New York, a woman was charged Saturday with attempted murder after allegedly throwing a Molotov cocktail into a police squad car in Brooklyn. Cars were set ablaze in the borough, and in Manhattan’s usually peaceful Union Square, where cops squared off against protesters late into the night. Protesters turned violent after a video circulated online showing an NYPD SUV ramming into a group of protesters in Brooklyn.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called the incident “troubling,” but added, “if those protesters had just gotten out of the way and not created an attempt to surround that vehicle, we would not be talking about this situation.”

  • California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency for Los Angeles County as hundreds of looters converged on downtown stores and clashed with cops. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a curfew for Saturday night after 500 people were arrested and five police officers were hurt as protests turned violent.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot imposed a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. after hundreds of protesters gathered at Federal Plaza for a demonstration organized by Black Lives Matter. Police cars were set ablaze and covered with anti-cop graffiti and demonstrators were reportedly arrested near Trump Tower.
  • Some 13 Philadelphia police officers were injured and more than a dozen people arrested as cars were burned and businesses vandalized before midnight. Mayor Jim Kenney implemented a mandatory citywide curfew starting at 8 p.m. and lasting until 6 a.m.Sunday.
  • In Indianapolis, three people were shot and killed and at least two others wounded as protests morphed into mob violence, according to Police Chief Randal Taylor.
  • In Denver, a car rammed into a police vehicle, “severely” injuring three officers and a civilian and rioters armed with crowbars, baseball bats, assault rifles and handguns attacked cops and peaceful protesters, according to Police Chief Paul Pazen.
  • Washington Gov. Jay Inslee activated 200 National Guard members after rioting in Seattle intensified. After protesters shut down Interstate 5 through central Seattle, police used flash bangs and pepper spray to scatter them.
  • Violent protests, vandalism and riots were reported in dozens of other cities.

  1. Rioters can explain their rage. But if any of them attempted to attack me, I would use deadly force in self defense.

    Let’s face the truth. The rioters are behaving like a bunch of jungle animals, and are resistant to any version of taming. There is nothing that police can do besides shoot them, and I hope the National Guard and police do exactly that. They may have their excuses, but now they are dead. No one shot them for peaceful demonstration. Until we meet their criminal behavior with deadly force, this will continue. When protesters meet up with death, they will stop. This is domestic terror, and all the negotiations and tweets from mayors will be wasted efforts. Shoot to kill.

  2. Interesting how the common theme for all of these cities mentioned is

    They all have a democrat for a mayor

    LA mayor Eric garcetti (democrat)

    Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot (Democrat)

    Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney (Democrat)

    Indianapolis mayor joe hogsett (Democrat)

    You get the gist (the other two are democrats too)

    And we all know New York City

    Just FYI Minneapolis is Democrat too

    Anyone else see a correlation

  3. I fully agree! They should get justice! They should be penalized by the full letter if the law. And, if the officer is guilty he should get punished too but not to let these miscreants continue destroying America because they choose to do so!

  4. Black logic as I see it: calling each other N word – ok, killing each other by the thousands every year – ok, 1 black killed by white cop and suddenly they care – in response burn down their own neighborhoods making it a $#@!hole or more of a $#@!hole then it already was. Why do they act like savages after each incident such as this? What if white people did the same? One way to stop this behavior is to bring in the tanks. A few rounds of live fire could do wonders.

    While I understand and put nothing past DemocRATs who have shown they will go to any extremes from an attempted presidential coup to inflicting an economic depression (Bill Maher expressed this on his show) to gain power,
    In a nation of 320 Million people a few hundred people compromising all races die every year by police, some justly some unjustly. Social Media and the MSM determine which ones you see and the narrative they give them.
    What do you want to bet social media boosted the video of the this tragedy hoping to fuel riots as diabolical revenge against the President removing their protections?
    Most never heard of Tony Timpa, a white man unjustly asphyxiated by police on video in Dallas. His killers laughed at him while he died and they remain free. No protests, no justice, no equal media coverage pre-protest.

    These Social Media Trump haters, some of them, are becoming so deranged and extreme. Maybe their new thing is suicide missions, just like Muslims. “Death to America”.
    Left-wing provocateurs send in the militants to torch buildings and cause mayhem. Certain “race baiter” black leaders whip up the hatred and division for maximum effect, utterly avoiding what they should be doing which is calling for all humans to rise up against the real enemies of humanity: Globalists, Big Tech and the depopulation vaccine engineers .
