Several peaceful protesters confronted riot police as they attempted to secure the Third Precinct to which Derek Chauvin, a former police officer charged with the murder of George Floyd, reported. On the day after Floyd’s death, riot police used tear gas and flash bangs to dissipate the crowds. Some violent agitators had started destroying police property including several squad cars and smashing windows of the police station. Peaceful protesters pleaded with those who resorted to violence to stop.
