Drone video of widespread damage following fires, riots in Minneapolis

Drone video of widespread damage on East Lake Street in Minneapolis following protests over the death of George Floyd that devolved into people setting fires and looting.

Floyd died at the hospital after he was detained by Minneapolis police officers near the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue South. A video taken by a bystander showed one of the officers pinning Floyd to the ground and pressing his knee into the man’s neck as the man repeats that he cannot breathe. Floyd eventually becomes unresponsive, but the officer continues to hold his knee to the man’s neck until an ambulance arrives.

The four responding police officers have been fired and the FBI and Minnesota BCA are investigating Floyd’s death.

    I was at Cub Foods when everything happened. Target was looted before the glass was smashed out at Auto Zone. The city officials, the mayor, and Governor tried to put the blame on outside agitators. I know the truth, so do many others. I left that dumpster fire of a city for good; I'm not paying for these idiots destruction, nor will I clean up after them.

    Republican Mayors and Governors would never allow this. They know how to call in support, and do not tell their police force to retreat or stand down and let it happen.
    This is 100% failed Democratic leaders.

    They don’t want to be seen and treated like animals but yet they act worse than a dam stray cat in heat those poor people that lost their job because these stray cats burning their place of employment down

    Would George Floyd want this? Would Ahmad Arbury want this? Would Breonna Taylor want this? This is not what black lives matter should be about it should be about peace not hate. Hate vs hate is like adding gasoline to a fire to put it out

    As a African American man myself, destroying businesses that had nothing to do with George Floyd was absolutely ridiculous all that’s doing is making our race look bad and we wonder why white folk hate us so much

    I feel bad for those who are unemployed because of this mess. The pandemic forced alot of people out of work this year already, now this made it worse. I'm glad I don't live in Minneapolis. I had legit respect for that city prior to these riots. I honestly would've felt safer in Detroit during late May of 2020.
