Protests erupt over murder of another black man

0

Thousands of people poured into the streets of Minneapolis on Wednesday for a second night of protests, demonstrations that began peacefully but turned chaotic as police fired rubber bullets from a rooftop, several buildings caught fire, and authorities said one person was shot and killed by a store owner — after a viral video showed a white police officer putting his knee on the neck of a black man, who later died.

The chaotic scenes followed the death of 46-year-old George Floyd on Monday, which came after a white officer pinned the handcuffed father of two to the pavement outside of a market where employees had called police about a counterfeit bill. Four Minneapolis police officers have been fired over the incident.
