Minneapolis declares curfew amid Floyd protests

Minneapolis Floyd protests

"They're not talking about mobilizing the entire United States Army", Walz said.

Gov. Tim Walz said the Pentagon was providing "intelligence support of what they're seeing, what they're signal intercepting, they have obviously from NSA and others massive support to be able to see who these operators are".

"By this afternoon, our hope is to exponentially have that force out there", Walz said, adding that he also anticipates getting "significant support" from the National Guard forces of neighboring states. They were not authorized to discuss the planning publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. He drew a distinction between the use of active-duty forces and the National Guard.

"The Department has been in touch with the Governor and there is no request for Title 10 forces to support the Minnesota National Guard or state law enforcement", the spokesman said, Title 10 is the us law that governs the armed forces, and would authorize active duty military to operate within the U.S. Carson in Colorado and Ft.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey tweeted Saturday the city is "now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region". Trump made the comments while touring the Kennedy Space Center before SpaceX's planned launch to the International Space Station, which was eventually scrubbed due to fears of a lightning strike. "What we are seeing right now is a group of people who are not from here", Carter said.

100,000 DEATHS: U.S. toll hits gruesome milestone as country reopens
For most, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. Democratic leaders have suggested that official buildings should fly flags at half-mast to mark the tragic occasion.

There were 27 riot arrests, with three people from out of state arrested.

The statute "is deliberately vague" when it comes to the instances in which the Insurrection Act could be used, he said. In that situation, they would perform non-law enforcement duties such as providing logistics help. Roughly 800 USA soldiers would deploy to the city if called. In several viral videos, Floyd was heard saying "I can't breathe" as a white police officer pinned him to the ground by his neck with his knee. Floyd later died of his injuries.

At Minneapolis' Third Precinct police headquarters, which was torched early Friday, State Patrol officers fired tear gas at protesters just before the curfew took place, the news outlet reported.

The curfew is for all public spaces and is set to begin Friday night at 8 p.m. and extend until 6 a.m. Saturday morning. In that city, peaceful protests picked up steam as darkness fell, with thousands of people ignoring the curfew to walk streets in the southern part of the city.
