Three killed, dozens injured across the nation in George Floyd protests

Rioters continued to rampage across the US on Saturday night, and the deaths from the senseless violence are beginning to stack up.

Saturday’s demonstrations ended with the deaths of three in Indianapolis and severe injuries to dozens more in Denver, Philadelphia, and New York City. 

Nearly every major city — and now even some smaller cities — has erupted in deadly, destructive violence after initially peaceful protestors gathered in Minneapolis to call for justice for George Floyd, a black man that died while in police custody on Monday.

Fox News reports that “Some 13 Philadelphia police officers were injured and more than a dozen people arrested as cars were burned and businesses vandalized before midnight.”

In addition to the explosion of violence in Philadelphia, “three people were shot and killed and at least two others wounded as protests morphed into mob violence, according to Police Chief Randal Taylor.”

Police vehicles were vandalized and set on fire Saturday evening in Manhattan, Salt Lake City, Atlanta, Chicago, and dozens of other cities.

Mayors across the nation have begun calling National Guard troops to help quell the violence, and half a dozen mayors and governors have instituted curfews in cities most impacted by the violence.

The riots don’t show any signs of slowing, as police forces in cities all over the US struggle to control the mobs. Donald Trump vowed on Saturday to end the violence, declaring that “In America, justice is never achieved at the hands of an angry mob. I will not allow angry mobs to dominate.”

    1. Well they think that is okay with deaths and burning and Looting and Destroying Billions of $$$$ as long as We Honor George Floyds Memory Period


  2. Patricia is right. They are thugs, thieves and major criminals. Enforce the curfew, start tazing them and use pepper spray. It is pathetic that these barbarians took a horrific murder and turned it into an opportunity for a street festival. You could see them laughing and dancing as well as taking selfies in front of flames. Where is the sadness and grief over the murder??????

  3. We need to call this for what it really is not protest’s but Domestic Terrorism organized and supported by the Communist Democratic Leftists. There only intent is to destroy the USA one community at a time. These terrorist attacks should be met with lethal force.
    Here’s a thought if S-Hole America meets their demise would mean better days are ahead.

  4. These violent protestors need their knees shot out. That will stop them. he only thing they are accomplishing is the destruction of their cities

  5. The looters, burners and murderers who plague Minneapolis and other cities across the country because of the slaying of George Floyd at the hands of the police are a symptom of a much deeper problem. Some clandestine, sinister masterminds must be paying off these maurauders to kill, steal, and destroy. Unless and until the kingpins behind the scenes are exposed and brought to justice, this savage and senseless crime spree will continue.

  6. I think that the man that is paying these mobs to destroy our country should be brought to justice! Even tho he is 90 years old!! He has bussed these criminals into these cities and should be held accountable!

  7. Once they go so far as to start killing it’s now a terrorist act. You then must arm yourselves from the terrorists.

  8. Those who are taking vengeance and taking violent actions,
    are placing themselves in the same low down category that
    they are accusing the cop who killed George of being.in.

  9. They are thugs, thieves and ignorant angry human beings. They need to be stopped NOW! The murder of George Floyd has broken heart’s all over our country BUT rioting is NOT the answer. EVER. THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP for doing whatever you have to do to get control and order back in our cities.

  10. A lot of the anger is because of the lockdown, it was already simmering then with the murder of Mr. Floyd it set people off. It won’t stop until people get back to work and start feeding their family again! The Government has taken away their value !!!

  11. Right here is the right site for anybody who would like to understand this topic. You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject that’s been discussed for a long time. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  12. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I really do believe that
    you have to publish more about this subject, it may possibly not be a taboo
    subject but usually people usually do not discuss such topics.

    To another! Kind regards!!
