Between Saturday and Sunday morning, curfews were ordered in at least 39 cities or counties across 21 states

Demonstrators face off with police while a car burns in the Fairfax District as they protest the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died while while being arrested and pinned to the ground by the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, on May 30, 2020 in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile other New York City elected officials, like City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, expressed outrage over the plainly dangerous and irresponsible act: Watch protesters in Chicago protect police officers who were being beaten following a violent confrontation The person who tweeted the video made a separate point:

Another NYPD SUV approaches and tries to move around the side of the other vehicle — and protesters then begin to surround it as well. The second vehicle surges forward, knocking the people back.

A witness told the Associated Press that “a couple people got out of the way, but some people didn’t, and it just drove straight through the crowd. … No one was pulled under the wheels that I saw, but people were definitely hurt.” Early Friday night outside the CNN Center, protesters attacked police cars and set one of them on fire, while others targeted the entrance to CNN headquarters with projectiles and spray paint and there was vandalism and looting, including at the College Football Hall of Fame.

Twin Cities curfew ignored in another night of violence Minnesota Governor Tim Walz issued an overnight curfew order for Minneapolis and St. Paul this weekend — from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, but many protesters ignored the order and hit the streets anyway on Friday night. Some of the protests remained peaceful, but others did not.

White House placed on brief lockdown amid protests, which continued overnight Hundreds of people protesting the death of George Floyd marched down 14th Street to the White House on Friday night, and a handful of protesters clashed with police in Lafayette Square park, prompting a brief lockdown at the White House, which is across the street. At least one person was arrested.

Ex-police officer Derek Chauvin charged with murder Chauvin, who was fired on Monday along with three other officers involved in detaining Floyd, was taken into custody on Friday afternoon. A short time later, Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County attorney, said that Chauvin had been charged with third degree murder and manslaughter. The investigation into the other three officers is ongoing.
