KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Protesters clashed with police during demonstrations on May 29 sparked by the death of George Floyd.
Pictures show lines of police officers in riot gear standing face-to-face with protesters, trying to keep them out of the streets. Two officers were pictured holding a sign that read, “End police brutality.”
While much of the protest was peaceful, some ended up smashing windows and damaging police vehicles.
Several people were arrested, though police have not released official numbers.
More protests are scheduled in Kansas City for Saturday, May 30 and 31.
George Floyd was an unarmed, handcuffed black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody. Video shows three officers kneeling on his back. One officer, later identified as Derek Chauvin, kneeled on his neck, despite Floyd repeatedly saying he couldn’t breath.
Floyd died soon after.
All four officers involved in the incident were soon fired. Derek Chauvin was later arrested and charged with murder.
