The governor of Minnesota called in the National Guard as looting and violence spread outside to neighboring towns outside of the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man in police custody. Rioting on Wednesday and Thursday reduced parts of one neighborhood to a smoking shambles. The protests erupted after witness video showed Floyd gasping for breath while an officer kneeled on his neck for almost eight minutes. In footage recorded by a bystander, Floyd pleads that he can’t breathe until he slowly stops talking and moving.
