US violence: 1,400 arrests in 17 cities during protests against death of George Floyd

death of George Floyd

Police have arrested practically 1,400 individuals in 17 US cities as protests proceed over the death of George Floyd.

Floyd died on Monday in Minnesota after a police officer put his knee on Floyd’s neck for greater than eight minutes. The officer was arrested on Friday and charged with third-degree homicide.

But the arrest has done little to quell protests throughout the nation. Most have been peaceable. But just a few have erupted in violence.

An Associated Press tally of arrests discovered at the very least 1,383 individuals have been arrested since Thursday. The precise quantity is probably going increased as protests proceed Saturday evening.
