Two Federal Protective Service officers suffered gunshot wounds amid protests Friday night in Oakland, California, police said. One of the officers died from his injury.
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.
Dozens arrested in Minneapolis as state plans to mobilize 1,700 National Guard soldiersFrom CNN's Joe SuttonA check-cashing business burns during protests in Minneapolis on Friday. John Minchillo/APAbout 50 people have been arrested as protests continue across Minneapolis.
More than 2,500 officers are helping to keep the peace, Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington told a news conference.This is one of the largest civil police forces the state of Minnesota has ever seen, he said. But resources are still stretched thin, with thousands of protesters estimated to have turned out across the city.
“We recognized that we simply did not, even with the numbers that I’m talking about, have enough officers and personnel to meet all of those missions safely and successfully. We picked missions based on our capacity,” Harrington said.Officers focused their efforts on downtown and the 5th Precinct area, he said.
A request has been made to substantially increase the number of National Guard officers available to bolster the city's response, Harrington said.Major General Jon Jensen, of the Minnesota National Guard, said he believed there could be more than 1,700 National Guard soldiers in the area by Sunday.
This would be the largest deployment in the state of Minnesota’s history.“At the conclusion of tomorrow, I believe that we will have over 1,700 soldiers in support of the Department of Public Safety in the city of Minneapolis and the city of Saint Paul,” Jensen said.
Jensen noted that people may have heard that President Donald Trump directed the Pentagon to put units of the United States Army on alert for a possible operation in Minneapolis.“While we were not consulted with as it relates to that, I do believe is a prudent move to provide other options available for the governor, if the governor elects to use those resources,” Jensen said.Read more: CNN »
No matter what's the reason- there isn't a drop of empathy for violent rioting protesters blocking roads and hurting others! “Two officers wounded in a citizen-involved shooting” FTFY bootlickers Did he have any “hypertension” or “potential intoxicants” in his system?..if he didn’t then maybe he would’ve survived JusticeForGeorgeFlyod
It's insane 😱 Protestors must protest peaceful to get their voice who sits in systems and punish people who does the crime but this is not the way to put others life in danger. georgesfloyd It's shit hole Oakland what do you expect? The Air Force should raze it to the ground. How do we know it wasn't an underlying condition that caused death? Were there any potential intoxicants in his system?
Town bizness! My condolences to the family. Impossible. These are peaceful protesters. lol Does this mean free Jordans and a single Gucci sandal for all white people if a cop is killed by thugs? Who shot them is the right question ?🤔this is sad and getting out of hands BidenForPresident2020 keep supporting riot you moran fake news cnn and attack Trump for asking the rioters to be peaceful. You fake news
He probably had unknown substances in his body and preexisting conditions This is no longer a peaceful protest but a hi hacking of a Black man’s name, life & legacy to conduct the destruction of our cities! Hope the protesters of justice will have some guns and body armor to keep themselves safe! good morgfair Isn't that exactly what Trump tweeted?
Вы открыли мне глаза morgfair Bloods on MikeFreemans hands , thank him. Is there going to be riot for the officer? Asking for a friend I can't believe the pathetic scum who would write that they are happy about a man's death. You don't value life if you praise death. That's sad. Peaceful protest my ass lol
This is where our leadership lead us and their decision to let cops have free roam with only paid leave as a repercussion. Mayor, senate and law enforcement has no one to blame but themselves This is sad and disgusting. Send in the Military to round up all these Homegrown Terrorists and ship them off to Gitmo!!!
This cannot happen Karma is a bitch I want my president to defend the values of America not pander to thugs and rioters like the liberals do. Wake up black America, the Democrats love what’s going on. They don’t care about you, they want your vote. Best foootage yet is CCP-NN being busted up and the whole crowd chanting CNN sucks. Rioters are smarter than they look. Lol
Well, how do we know they didn't have an underlying heart problem? THESE RIOTS ARE OUT OF CONTROL, POLICE JUST WATCHING IT HAPPEN, SCARED THEY WILL BE ACCUSED, PUT IN A VOLITILE SITUATION, BLAME WILL BE ON POLICE, THESE RIOTERS ARE BREAKING THE LAW, ARREST THEM, SOCIETY HAS TO BEHIND THE POLICE FORCE, OTHERWISE IT'S ALL RIOTS, UNSAFE ENVIRONMENT
Good Is this what the autopsy said ? Are we sure it wasn't fucking asthma ? Those animals... Deblasio told his first responders when attacked by rioters to turn their uniform shirts inside out and run. What a POS, we need the national guard in NYC!! The time to remain silent has long passed. The arrogance of the swamp has backfired....
If you guys really want the government to start doing something, start burning down the federal reserve This does not help the cause , CNN SHOULD BE CLOSED THEY ARE A TREASON CHANNEL, SET OUT TO RIDICULE, INFLATE STORIES FULL OF FAKE NEWS, HATE FOR THE PRESIDENT AND GOP, IT'S AN INBUILT CULTURE OF POISON, THEY TRY TO DICTATE BECOMING MORE POWERFUL THAN THE ELECTED PRESIDENT, LOOK AT THE RUSSIAN SCANDAL, LIES
Martin Luther King said it this way, that rioting is the voice of the unheard. 'Let me say as I've always said, and I will always continue to say, that riots are socially destructive and self-defeating.' 具有讽刺意味的是，CNN总部遭到他们宣传为高尚和正义的暴动的袭击。 哎呀 libs won't give a fuck about their lives though Didn't you say they were peaceful protestors?
deafsinger68 What a strange way of stating that an officer was shot dead and another one was injured? Not a protest A beautiful slight to behold ——Nancy Pelosi Ok. Enough is enough. Time to fire back. Just like when kids have no fear they will try you until you slap the bejesus out of their behind. All those people who think that destruction and stealing are justified with these riots, please provide your address so that we can send these rioters to your neighborhood.
Restore justice! Less people will get hurt! False policeman died. Yeah. Good luck with that. Oakland don’t play... High cholesterol could have been the likely cause of his death. People REALLY don't want to hear from Van Jones. Don’t be shy, put some more! Such a tragic friendly fire event. I’m pretty sure it was the intoxicants that’s killed him... totally an accident
Trump served Putin well... only four years, and the USA is done, and half the country points fingers elsewhere for him They are lawless rioters. Ffs It's gone too far. It's time to crush the mob. So now they're killing cops and you're still running cover for them. You were calling peaceful lockdown protests terrorists.
Good, hope there’s more 1312 amid rioting, not protesting. 'Two Federal Protective Service officers suffered gunshot wounds' looting leads to shooting, just like President Trump said. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯ BLACK_LIVES_MATTER riots2020 BlackLivesMatter Trump has told the military police to get ready need someone like trump that gets things done not talk about it
Time to start shooting the rioters. Warn them first. Make it clear If they show up they take their lives in their own hands. has stoked & blood is on your hands. Are you proud of your 24/7 hate campaign? When people are killed, they're called riots. Rioters are Trump's Bestest Buddies. So what do you call them now? When protesters loot, rob, burn, & shoot police officers, they are lawless rioters. You can’t call them out because you’ll have to label the Hong Kong protesters the same.
Got the wrong one MGC3I If You live like a coward: you die like one. He Had A Gun. He Had A Chance. Authority on the run, never using what it has. I feel very sorry for this Man, but American society championed his murderer and others like him. Giving medical care and housing with no need for a job....
So bad. Please help me! My name is Lin donglong, an employee of China telecom fuzhou branch. Company manager huang fei (communist party of China) organized the leadership of the gang of evil forces brutal persecution: surveillance location, insult,abuse, framed to take nude photos of me Cry me a river 🔥👮♂️🔥🇱🇷🔥👮♂️🔥🇱🇷🔥
good for them Will he get protests & riots in his name too? Will CNN ever speak his name? ☺️ please follow me Good ACAB 9.1.1 How heartbreaking. But I'd like to know about his past? Does he have a murky past? Maybe he has health problems? We cannot know whether the person that shot him actually killed him. Too many variables.
Oh man sucks to have an officer involved kinetic event! Are we sure he didnt independently die of pre-existing conditions moments before the bullet hit him? Let’s wait to see ALL of the facts before we jump to conclusions. If the cops just stay away, they won't get hurt or killed. Id rather buildings be destroyed than humans being killed. Police should just make a barrier around the area and let the protesters do whatever they want. Structures can be rebuilt. Lives can't!
When, where exactly, by whom? You have not reported the answers to the questions that a responsible journalist would. What you have posted here is incomplete & considering the situation, inflammatory. irresponsible You sure it wasn’t corona? Wrong message. Praying for peace The police and judiciary for decades are not giving peace a chance for violating the right of minority. 2nd amendment gives the people power to defend themselves against cruel government
Fighting,My bro Total madness. Why can’t people maintain law and order? Let law take its own course. Justice cannot be delivered through anti social behavior. RIP Any death is a travesty. These protesters need to be met with the army. Send them in realDonaldTrump Why are democrat cities so violent? RIP :/
RIP.... May he rest in peace 3

It only took two hours for Trump's administration to contradict his threat to shut down TwitterPresident Trump took to his favorite social media platform to attack social media platforms on Wednesday morning, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certainly didn&39;t do anything to help his boss&39; case.Shortly after Trump claimed on Twitter he would "strongly regulate" or "close I think I just hurt my neck.

HBO Go or HBO Max: What's the difference between the two?There's now three different HBO streaming services: HBO Go, Now and their latest, Max. Here's the difference between them. The main thing is the unreal moronic HBO Max not having an Amazon Firestick app...
Two prominent Republicans call out Trump for repeating baseless conspiracy theory about MSNBC hostTwo prominent Republicans on Wednesday said President Trump should stop tweeting about a fake conspiracy theory involving MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and a deceased woman's family. Where were they on Russia and Ukraine, NO WHERE!!!! Only 2? Pathetic. They should've been this aggressive back in 2016 and this isn't that aggressive at this point in 2020.
Indonesia to keep prescribing two malaria drugs for COVID-19 despite bans in EuropeIndonesia will continue to prescribe two anti-malaria drugs for coronavirus patients but monitor their use closely, a spokesman for Indonesia COVID-19 taskforce said on Thursday, after some European nations banned the drug over safety concerns. It is still an approved anti-malarial and anti-lupus drug. So it hasn't been 'banned.' Please clear up your reporting. World cleansing! Yeah! Not everything is about Europe.
