Violent Protests Continue To Erupt In Minneapolis After George Floyd Was Killed

"My family is a peaceful family, my family is God-fearing. Yeah we're upset but we're not going to be repetitious.

"In every case of police brutality, the same thing has been happening. Y'all protest, y'all destroy stuff. And you know why they don't move? Because it's not their stuff, it's our stuff.

"So they want us to destroy our stuff. So let's do this another way. Let's do this another way."

Minneapolis has been the epicentre of the violent demonstrations as it's where George was killed. He died while being arrested by a white police officer who knelt on his neck for nearly 10 minutes.
