Tensions flare for the fourth night as protestors respond to George Floyd's death. Follow along as we track what's happening across the US.

Volunteers on the north side of Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon turned parking lots into makeshift markets to combat a dearth of grocery stores in the area.

All businesses along Broadway appeared to be closed as of Saturday afternoon due to violent protests the past two nights. "Right now, our grief and pain is being exploited. People primarily from outside our city are destroying black and minority-owned businesses in our city,” Omar said. “We can’t let them. Let us all prioritize justice for George Floyd, police reform, alongside the safety of our community and the prevention of more violence. I urge people to stay home tonight so we can better target and isolate these agitators.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon offered to assist Minnesota with active-duty troops. So far, Gov. Tim Walz has not sought help from federal troops, according to a statement from Jonathan Hoffman, a Defense Department spokesman. Leaning on her shovel while talking, social worker Kara Vangen, 58, said no one should mistake the cleanup as a criticism of the protests themselves.

Minnesota: ‘thugs,’ Hong Kong: ‘heroes’ - hypocrisy or what 😂

Left wing terrorism not “protesters”

This has nothing to do with Floyd and you know it. They are destroying black communitys and businesses.

Let me guess. This is all Trumps fault just like the virus. I’m waiting for some stupid comment to come up.

Bullshit. This is not protesting. This is lawless thievery and vandalism. The liberal support of these actions is why our society has turned into a shit sandwich.

Why aren’t protesters stopping others from looting, burning, throwing things. It only spoils all the PeacefulProtests riots2020

Military should be deployed

Send in the armed forces now.

Rioters Set Minneapolis Police Station on Fire Over George Floyd KillingRioters have set the Minneapolis police station on fire. This wouldn't have happened today if they indicted the cop. When people say, 'No justice, No Peace' I guess they really mean it. No amount of burning buildings will disturb me as much as watching George Floyd die. If they don't charge those officers involved, trust me these riots will get worse and worse for them.
