The death of African American, George Floyd, while being arrested by a police officer, has caused the nationwide demonstrations in the States. The demonstrations have begun on Tuesday, May 26 in Minneapolis, where the incident captured on video has taken place. On Sunday, May 31, protesters have been on the streets in over a hundred cities across the US for the sixth night in a row. However, something that has started as a peaceful protest against police brutality, has now turned into violent demonstrations with protesters setting fires and smashing storefronts. Thus, #LosAngeles, #Chicago, #Miami, #Detroit, and #Philadelphia are among the nearly 40 cities that have enforced overnight curfews. The governors of #Texas and #Virginia have imposed states of emergency. Scenes of fighting between the Police holding shields and batons, pushing back lines of protesters, launching tear gas into crowds have flared over the recent days.
