Protests broke out in 70 cities across the United States
“Fire and anger swept across the country.” On May 31, on the front page of CNN, there were pictures of African Americans walking hand in hand, riot police waiting for them, streets ablaze with fire, broken doors and windows Each picture is labeled with different city names: Minneapolis, Washington, Chicago, Seattle and so on. Although the white police who caused the death of African American man George Freud has been identified by the prosecution as suspected of third degree murder and manslaughter, the scars of racial discrimination that have been uncovered again are hard to be healed. In recent days, riots in Minnesota have spread to more than 70 cities across the United States, at least eight states and Washington, D.C., mobilizing National Guard in response to demonstrations, the New York Times reported. Outside the White House, some protesters and secret service personnel and police have a fierce confrontation; inside the White House, President trump of the United States has launched a full range of fire on twitter, threatening to use “the most fierce dog, the most terrible weapon” to deal with the protesters outside, and targeting the “far left forces”. The novel coronavirus pneumonia death case breaks through 100 thousand, the unemployment number reaches 41 million, and because of the excessive police law enforcement to ignite the rage of the whole American people, the American media people sigh that the country has gone through one tragedy after another last week, but Trump has not played the leading role. He seems to do only one thing: Twitter. What’s more disturbing, says foreign policy, is that Trump’s comments seem to be inciting racism and ingratiating with white conservative voters, which only makes things worse.
On May 30, the Minneapolis protests continued into their fifth day. According to The Associated Press, protesters set fire on the top floor of a shopping mall in the city, and a group of people threw hard objects at the police; in a fierce confrontation, protesters even opened fire on the police. However, there was a strong crackdown on the protest groups that night: at 8 p.m., a curfew issued by the municipal authorities came into force, and law enforcement, with the assistance of the National Guard, used non lethal weapons to forcibly disperse the demonstrators and arrest dozens of demonstrators who violated the curfew.
The Minnesota National Guard will be deployed to more than 13000 people, NBC reported May 30. “This is the largest operation of the Minnesota national guard since it was formed 164 years ago.” Waltz, the state governor, said Saturday.
In response to the riots, many Minnesota officials have the suspicion of “throwing the pot”. “When you see this spread all over the country, you start to think about whether it is a kind of domestic terrorism There are still foreign forces undermining the stable operation of our country. ” Waltz said May 30. The mayor of Minneapolis blamed “white supremacy” and “incitement from outside the state”; the mayor of Sao Paulo even once said that the people arrested in the city “all come from outside the state”, and later said that he received “false data”. According to Fox News, 86% of the dozens of protesters arrested in Minneapolis recently were locals. According to the guardian, it is a “convenient” political means for the officials concerned to cover up the great embarrassment of improper public security management and raise the contradiction to an “ideological level”.
According to the New York Times, the public anger caused by Freud case has escalated, with protests sweeping at least 75 cities across the United States, involving tens of thousands of people in total. There were several shootings in Indianapolis that day, killing one person. Detroit fell into chaos when a 19-year-old was shot dead. Another flag burning incident occurred in Chicago, where about 3000 protesters gathered to demonstrate at the Trump International Hotel. Thousands of protesters took to the streets for the third day in a row in New York City. Video shows a police car suddenly sped up after it was surrounded and hit the crowd, which enraged the protesters around. In St. Louis, Missouri, a man suspected of being a protester was killed by a FedEx truck.

On the same day, thousands of Berliners gathered in front of the U.S. Embassy in Germany.
