At least 11 people were victims of pogroms that unfolded in the United States due to the death of African-American George Floyd.

In nine US cities, protests turned into murders

This was reported by the Associated Press.

According to media reports, the victims were residents of St. Louis, Louisville, Auckland, Indianapolis, Davenport, Minneapolis, Omaha, Detroit and Chicago.

So, in Louisville during the assault on the National Guard, the owner of a local restaurant, David Makati, was killed. In Davenport, 22-year-old Italy Kelly, who fled the scene of the protests, was killed. In the same city, not far from the site of the shootout associated with the pogroms, the body of another man was found. A former police officer was shot dead during a riot in St. Louis.

As News Front previously reported, riots have not subsided in the United States since last week. Uprising began in Minneapolis, where a policeman killed African-American George Floyd. The man was detained on suspicion of forging a check for $ 20. During the arrest, the policeman began to press his knee on Floyd’s neck. He said that he had nothing to breathe, but the policeman did not listen. As a result, the detainee died.

The incident led to protests that swept the whole country in a few days. Pogroms are recorded in large cities, including New York and Washington. US President Donald Trump, in turn, does not exclude the possibility that the protests will be suppressed with the help of federal troops. To this end, the United States even has a special law justifying the use of the army against its own citizens.
