“We can rebuild a building. But we cannot give this man back to his family.”

In the wake of Floyd’s death, Hafsa had spent the past few days at Gandhi Mahal, which sits just a few blocks from the Minneapolis Police’s Third Precinct, in the heart of the neighborhood that has been the epicenter of the protests.

“The first thing I noticed was his facial expression,” Hafsa said. “It brought that image to my mind. I remembered how he was crying and in pain.” To Ruhel, who grew up in a “police state” in Bangladesh, the forces that brought down his beloved restaurant were very clear. He places the blame on city leaders and local law enforcement who had failed to arrest the officers involved in Floyd’s death, before the officer who knelt on Floyd’s neck was“They could have stopped this,” Ruhel said. “They need to put the police in jail. It should have been solved two, three days ago.

Moon Palace's large glass windows were boarded up and tagged with"Do Not Burn" after reports emerged that the owners had refused to allow police to stage operations in their parking lot.None of this, though, has lessened the pain of the loss of Gandhi Mahal, for Ruhel or for Hafsa. Ruhel tried to protect his building, he said: he stayed there this morning until 1 a.m., until he finally had no choice but to go home.

George Floyd Minnesota protest updates: Governor activates National GuardThe police officer seen in a video with his knee on George Floyd's neck was involved in 18 complaints prior to being fired, according to records released by the city. Just out of perspective, because I don’t know, how many complaints does an average police officer receive each year? 18 complaints? 18 opportunities to save George Floyd's life. 18 is a lot of complaints. The person who dealt with these complaints needs to explain why the 19th ended in murder.

George Floyd Minnesota protests updates: No charges announced as officials ask for 'patience'The Department of Justice has made the investigation into Floyd's death a 'top priority,' Erica MacDonald, attorney for state of Minnesota, said at a press conference. Let’s here the whole truth. So if you don’t get you way it’s ok to trash a city... To the FBI: I say BS. The video of the murder is more than needed to warrant arrests. Your just wasting time to fraudulently placate & blow smoke up the Minneapolis community. Trump & Barr ordered you to bury it! Get these thugs of the streets even as civilian This was the second rather obvious misstep by the authorities in the wake of the killing. They know it and so do we. However violence protest is less effective than persistent, unrelenting civil disobedience. Don’t squander this opportunity. minneapolisriots GeorgeFloyd
