By The Blaze. The second day of protests in Minneapolis over the death of a black man, George Floyd — who died after a white police officer held him down with a knee to his neck for several minutes during detainment — erupted into looting and vandalism, and a man who appeared to be a Trump supporter was beaten by activists.
Reporter Karen Scullin of KMSP-TV was at the scene of the demonstration for several hours on Wednesday, and live-tweeted what she witnessed. She noted that the crowd continued to build throughout the day despite the official protest not starting until 5:00 p.m.
Scullin wrote that protestors were trying to break into the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd precinct, and officers fired rubber bullets in an effort to push back the crowd which she described at that time to be “not huge but very vocal and angry.” . . .

Some of the protesters could be seen on video hitting the windows and hood of a CHP cruiser as it attempted to slowly drive away from the crowd. As the cruiser accelerated, a few protesters could be seen on the hood of the vehicle.
