JUST IN: Multiple police vehicles have had their windows broken in front of the CNN Center in Atlanta. Protests are taking place in multiple cities over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Protests following the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded that he couldn't breathe while he was held down with a knee by a Minneapolis police officer, have spread nationwide. Follow here for the latest updates.
From CNN's Chris BoyetteMinnesota Gov. Tim Walz pauses during a news conference in St. Paul, on Friday, May 29. Glenn Stubbe/Star Tribune/APMinnesota Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order Friday imposing an 8 p.m. CT (9 p.m. ET) curfew for the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in the wake of fires, looting and protests through the Twin Cities after the death of George Floyd.
The curfew begins Friday and extends through the weekend, according to the order.“It’s time to rebuild our community and that starts with safety in our streets,” Walz said in a statement. “Thousands of Minnesotans have expressed their grief and frustration in a peaceful manner. But the unlawful and dangerous actions of others, under the cover of darkness, has caused irreversible pain and damage to our community. This behavior has compromised the safety of bystanders, businesses, lawful demonstrators, and first responders. Now, we come together to restore the peace.”
The mayors of each city have already imposed curfews for the same time. Read more: CNN »
Why the reporter is not using facial mask? cnnbrk Why does it have too be a black and white thing especially in this day and age when we’re all supposed too be Americans who care and would do anything too protect this country. Why can’t it be that cop fucking messed up que bueno agarren jabon para que laven cuerdas de COÑO E MADRES TODOS PENDEJOS JAJAJA, POLICIAS DE EEUU MAMAGUEVOS
cnnbrk We always had GeorgeFloyd in Palestine Let a nation who has never abused human on the planet should be the one talking against abuse not US who has abuse humanity for over 600 during and after slavery stop talking about it. Police killing everyday! African American incarcerated by European American Everyday
Valencia Valencia check the tone of your reporting and remember the first rule of journalism you learned in class, although your reporting has made me doubt you ever had any training in Journalism. If you are too afraid and can’t stay composed to do your job in such heated situations, WE need to declare a REVOLUTION to the UN and send all our Grievances out in a DECLARATION of WAR against the US Government by WE the PEOPLE
Maybe George Floyd must have hated CNNFakeNews like we all do. It’s a shame the police didn’t let Don Lemon and Afraido Cuomo protect CNN. Burn a racist! cnnbrk Sad 😢 cnnbrk It will turn worst Because the crest it for we turn war civil ) we need stop being victims cnnbrk This savage and hateful behaviour of American’s police deep culture of getting away with crimes they do against blacks is finally appropriately responded. Cops who wear protect and serve just to make themselves look good, was about time they see accumulated anger of innocent
Lets get this right the police were NOT being attacked CNN Was being attacked LONG before the police turned up CNN is being targeted by the very monster they created and is being paid for by Soros come on now wakey wakey you must have seen this coming, Q DID ! Good luck everyone What about democracy and freedom?
How can I do more to protest about death of George Floyd? I’ve already pinched 5 handbags that I will never use but I feel there is something more I should be doing. This is an assault on peaceful protesters. This is a state sponsored genocide attempt against the minorities. At least that's what CNN would have shamelessly reported had this happened outside US. Idiots.
CNN is happy about the protests. هذه العنصرية بأبعادها الثلاثة تمارس ضد المستضعفين السود وهذه ليست المرة الاولى في سلسلة الاجرام المنظم Hahahahaha!!! cnnbrk Nancy Pelosi said she liked to see HK riot as 'a beautiful landscape' ! ' Is this a karma ? IRONIC. Charlot2409 Luckily the USA has a president that is able to bring people together ☹
Go do that at the police officers house and that police station where the racist police officer works His voice is irritating 😠. But anyway. No justice no peace. Or is it the death of Mr. Floyd? Is it perhaps seizing an opportunity? Are the thugs being paid? cnnbrk Police should have not stopped the lthugs from going into cnn they finally saw cnn for what it is an arm of the racist left
Deben apoyar a los manifestantes envíen fdelrinconCNNE a que los entrevisté If you think this is about Floyd You are dumber than we thought has cancelled Covid19 inciting their protesters to go riot. Zero social distanced. Delinquents crash and burn. Peanut brains including CNN cnnbrk CNN isn’t worth saving. Sometimes, the truth hurts.

Why CNN, unless it's Trump's militia groups? He did signal last night... the tweet removed. He's giving out signals all the time. I'm hoping investigators are keen to that. They have to be. Putin is probably celebrating. He wanted civil unrest in America. It's not the first time. Im so speechless.. this is who you support
Hopefully msnbc is next Hey CNN & COOPER .. so how's your Atlanta Headquarters I guess the protesters can't stand you either .. Looks like karma paid you a visit. Yet you're not reporting on C NN building itself being attacked, WHY CNN - CABAL News Network Big Daddy Soros went all out this time.. Your fake news has lead to this. You wear it well.
Still calling them PROTESTERS CNN - or as they destroy your building - will you elevate their status to RIOTERS? choupete450 je vois de véhicules de police se faire attaquer devant CNN et pas CNN passer au feu ou victime de crachats dans leurs vitrines. 🤷🏻♂️ I understand how sad and heartbreaking it is about Floyd. I am in no way defending the police but I ha e police in my family and friends and they are good people. These are the same police you call when you’re in trouble. Make your voices heard but don’t go against beating cops.
Why do white journalists enjoy freedom of the press while black journalist was arrested？？？ So they've finally figured out who the real enemy is? Frankenstein's monster has returned. Nothing less than CNN deserves. Karma Ted Turner needs to come back! Oh this is only the beginning. Your time is up, America.
At least one good thing they did. how come you're not reporting your own building being destroyed?! cnnbrk CNN = pitiful. Mainstream news is dead. What a great day for CNn hate news network EVEN THEY HATE YOU!!!! Lol hahahahahahahahaa perhaps it was the BS YOU PULLED THIS MORNING! We all knew it was staged and this is what you get for pulling some bs like that!! I love it
Why are people so stupid? Shoot em The US as microcosm of the human race. Capable of great things but often willing to act in the most disgraceful manner. No longer protests when property is damaged. Now referred to as a riot Why didn’t you let your friends in? Chickens coming home to roost Wait just a second... What about the covid-19 deadly plandemic virus?! Guess they're all gonna get it and die? 🤔🙃🤙
cnnbrk I understand why they are protesting but this getting out of hand. What does target have to do with what happened. What did CNN do except report the news. What did the brewery have to do with the murder of George. They are now looking like thugs and I agree with the protest. The CNN Center -go for it guys — grieve how you need to — in a sick sadistic way, this community is more United than The Left and Right have ever been — maybe The Fascist Leftists can ruminate and realize not only will their one-sided polices be shut down but are unconstitutional
And you wonder why we judge people Your building is being attacked why don’t you report that? The twitter page says: 'It’s our job to GoThere & tell the most difficult stories.' But why aren't you showing the broken windows on your own building? Is that too difficult a story for you to tell? Again, CNN becomes the story. Horrible, discredited news organization.
CNN dealt with racial injustice to their own people last night live. They did a good job covering the events and making sure all protesters didn't get lumped together. IT MAKES NO SENSE for 'protesters' to be attacking CNN. That group seems more agenda motivated for supremist. MtRushmore2016 You can’t scare Cooper Anderson, he’s a Vanderbilt. You know. Satans family.
STAGED. Look at the white masked instigators, just like in Minneapolis...More False Flags. Looks like CNN is trying to be relevant, and can take a jab and blame POTUS for calling them FAKE NEWS and making people see that they are the Enemy of the People. And they are. Oh so now you can see vandalism CNN, when it is at your doorstep!!
Now that’s funny.... believe it’s time to stop the racial tethering don’t you think cnnbrk Why are you not covering this? He was apparently ID'd as a member of the Police... peaceful protesters A large number of police officers in helmets are creating a blockade. They are facing off against protesters holding signs.
How are those 'peaceful protests' working out for you FakeNews CNN? Karma Crazy Wow they aren’t kidding? Now taking down CNN building? Guess they want more money from Soros What an example of this America, the world gets to see! Sad and shameful! You stoked the flames of this bs and now it's come back to bite you. YOU created that monster!
Don’t understand why the need to destroy property don’t get it cnnbrk How are those peaceful protests working out for you guys? Interesting that BLM went to riot at CNN. I wonder how CNN will now cover these “protests”? You have fed these animals for years. Now they have come for you idiots! Hey honey, I'm going to get us a new TV tonight, need anything while I'm out ?
Raid CNN Didn't CNN windows get busted too? And your sign defaced? Wrong is wrong, but I thought you were friends with these rioters. Yes. Rioters. Don Lemon officially put in a pretzel You’re just talking about this now? And yet people are posting on Instagram that this is perfectly okay. Wow. Nice job CNN and Twitter for promoting hate and violence 🙄
You sow hate, you reap it, CNN CNN gonna get looted. Destroying Politics building & not a peep? Trying to figure out narrative? is a FRAUD and people are finding that out! They are racist bigots and are being exposed! They are LIARS and now WE KNOW! Him asking the police to move out of camera view was priceless...
I hope they burn it! CNN deserves it! How you liking them rioters you defend now?😂😂😂 These are not protests. They are violent thugs destroying American cities. CRUELDADE SEM LIMITES DA POLÍCIA AMERICANA COM UMA PESSOA INDEFESA. UMA DAS MAIORES ATROCIDADES DE TODOS OS TEMPOS kendi_marcos Finally a protest I can stand behind. Kidding of course. 😳
Are the no mask looters trying to kill grandma also? I can’t Let’s see how CNN spins this one lol Can't find any trump supporter there 🤷♂️ I love that they targeted your building, I will be watching that video for a long time! ISSO, É PRA VOCES APRENDEREM, E NUNCA MAIS MATAR UM NEGRO, INDEFESO.
