Riots have erupted in cities across America following the death of unarmed and handcuffed George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer.
Chaos fell on Minneapolis, Minnesota this week after footage emerged of Mr Floyd gasping for air as Derek Chauvin pinned him to the floor and knelt on his neck. President Donald Trump has threatened to send the national guard ‘and get the job done right’ as unrest shows no signs of easing.
Both peaceful protests and rioting have broken out in a number of US cities including Los Angeles, New York, Denver and Louisville. Officers were forced to run from the Minneapolis Third Police Precinct last night after a crowd broke into the building and set it ablaze.
Demonstrators are also demanding justice for other African Americans who have been killed by police, including Breonna Taylor, who was shot dead by officers in March at her home in Louisville, Kentucky.
