Protesters took to the streets across America again May 31, with violence flaring in pockets of largely peaceful demonstrations sparked by the May 25 killing in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded with a police officer pressing a knee into his neck that he could not breathe.

Protests sprang up from Boston to San Francisco, with people robbing stores in broad daylight in Philadelphia and Santa Monica, California. In Minneapolis, the driver of a tanker truck sped into a peaceful crowd of thousands on a closed highway, apparently deliberately, but no protesters appeared to have been hit, authorities said.

The Minnesota State Patrol tweeted that the driver was apparently trying to provoke protesters and was arrested. Protesters swarmed the truck and jumped on the hood, even as it kept moving, before police cleared the highway.

The protests, fueled by the killing of Floyd and other black people at the hands of police, quickly became national, spreading to dozens of cities large and small, and have lasted for days.

The white officer who pressed his knee onto Floyd’s neck for several minutes has been charged with murder, but protesters are demanding the other three officers at the scene be prosecuted. All four were fired. (AP)
