US anti-racism protests: Curfews in place in more than 12 cities

For a fourth day, there have been violent protests across the United States, from New York to Los Angeles.
As night falls, curfews are now being enforced in more than a dozen cities.
Los Angeles, Atlanta, Portland and Denver are among those restricting movement to try and curb more violence.
But, in Minneapolis, people are again defying the orders and continuing to make their voices heard on the streets.

Al Jazeera has reporters standing by in four major cities: Al Jazeera’s John Hendren is in Minneapolis, Gabriel Elizondo is in New York, Andy Gallacher is in Miami and Rob Reynolds is in Los Angeles.

    I'll buy police brutality argument. Not sold it is racist simply because suspect identified by victims was Black and cops White.

    Remember, all of this started over an allegedly fake piece of money during a grocery transaction (and even this is still being debated). If you don't think you have power as an individual …

    The 3 other officers were seen kneeling on the back of George Floyd whiles the other cop of asian origin(like a Chinese) was standing on guard protecting passers by from helping out. All of them contributed so i think all of them should be charged with Murder. This racial profiling must stop. People are angry because this has been happening over and over again.

    USA is breaking a lot of stereotypes in 2020. About them being a successful state. The world can see, their makeover of being the first world nation.

    What we need to do is have Carry Lam get 2000 US cops sent to Hong Kong so that the Hong Kong protestors can learn and understand what real police brutality is.

    Hong Kong Police had 8 months of riots, thoussands, upon thousands of rioters arrested, yet they didn't even kill a single person. Didn't even call the military either.

    Back in the US 5 US policeman couldn't even arrest one man without killing him by axficiation. On the 3rd day of riots the governor had to call the military onto the streets. Unbelievable.

    I never visit this 3rd world country even if I’m paid to do it. Yes it’s a 3rd world country with discrimination, drinking water issues, sanitation issues, roads and infrastructure issues. Ppl are vastly uneducated, live in poverty and the health care is only for profit. Their major cities are fine, once you get into middle America living conditions are subhuman.

    So I’m not surprised when I see this carnage against none white minorities. hence I never visit.

    absofuckinglutely in the police states of America invasion of civil rights to get murdered by all these militarized police force's that have been murdering people with impunity for hundreds of years now I think the people have had enough of their fkn police state protest against the tyrannical regimes that have been established in many states oppressing the people who pay the taxes that pay the police state wages

    Looking at the comments here, seems most of them want their cities burnt down to the ground, anarchy to prevail over law and order. Don't complain when you don't have a job or government aid to help you eat…. Funny how people want to see the end as we know it…

    The people, especially the young have every right to be protesting in the streets. Their elders continue to fail them with poor leadership, incompetence, corruption and greed. People are hurt and suffering, 100,000 deaths from Covid. If property damage is a victim, so be it.

    As an African-American and former law enforcement officer, I knew this was coming. Our lives are not valued and black people are routinely targeted and disproportionately murdered by police. People can only take so much. My mother travels the world and has lived in many other countries and the only time she has experienced racism is in the United States. If peaceful protests worked then black men would not still be getting lynched almost every day.

    This stopped being a manifestation of anger when they started rioting and shooting at other rioters. These are crimes of opportunity, well-organized and well-funded; deliberately meant to cause chaos and destruction. The businesses they are destroying have already been hit my COVID-19, but now with the aftermath of the rioting, they may never come back. How were the businesses responsible for the death of Mr. Floyd? This is propaganda news.

    Protect your rights! This is a clear warning to those cops thinking they are a separate group from the people they are supposed to be serving.

    If Americans own so many guns and firearms, why aren't they using them to take on the po-po?
