US cities impose curfews as anti-police brutality protests persist

 

Peaceful protests took place across US cities, but pockets of looting prompted officials to introduce curfews to avoid violence. President Trump blamed the far left for violence, while others pointed to the far right.

Curfews were extended on Sunday night in dozens of US cities, as clashes between police and protesters demonstrating against police brutality continued unabated.

Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Detroit and Washington were all among major US cities put under curfews. The southwestern state of Arizona instituted a state-wide, weeklong curfew after demonstrators there occupied city streets and battled police.

Some 5,000 national guard soldiers have been deployed in 15 US states, as well as in the capital city Washington, in order to provide support to overwhelmed local law enforcement.

During the day, protests were largely peaceful in large metropolitan areas, but pockets of looting activity had led authorities to impose curfews ahead of possible clashes in the evening.

In Minneapolis, tensions were still high. The midwestern city has been the epicenter of the latest protest movement, where George Floyd died in police custody when a white police officer pressed his knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes. The police officer was charged with murder on Friday.
On Sunday, a tanker truck barrelled into a crowd of thousands of people protesting on a Minneapolis highway, according to video shared on social media and TV footage, in what the Minnesota Department of Public Safety called a “very disturbing” incident. Officials say no one appeared to be have been hit.

A litany of videos cycled through social media showing police officers pushing demonstrators to the ground, shooting rubber bullets at journalists, and, in New York City, a police car forcing its way through protesters after being surrounded, all instances that have led to criticism against police response to the protests.

President Donald Trump was active on Twitter on Sunday, blaming Democratic mayors and governors for the disorder and urging them to get tough.
