Justice For George: Celebs Are Outraged, Minneapolis Residents Experience Unrest

George Floyd’s death has sparked outrage across the nation, but the unrest turned into riots in the city of Minneapolis where the 46-year-old was killed by cops.

Protestors gathered on Tuesday at the same location where officer Derek Chauvin held his knee in George’s neck for several minutes while he pleaded “I can’t breathe.” The march from the site of the arrest to the Minneapolis Police’s 3rd Precinct building was peaceful. However, according to CBS Minnesota, “officers dressed in riot gear formed a barrier around the precinct, and videos show them using smoke bombs or tear gas, as well as flash grenades, against the demonstrators.”

Some residents retreated, while others rioted — but either way, their emotions and actions were a direct reaction to the callous cops who took George Floyd’s life.

The public outrage that was seen on the streets of Minneapolis was also reflected across social media as celebrities postured Colin Kaepernick’s knee next to the knee on Floyd’s neck.
