Riots in the United States
Since George Floyd, a black man, was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we've seen cops arresting and beating up people for seemingly no good reason, driving their cars into a crowd, tear-gassing peaceful protesters and bystanders, and arresting and attacking journalists.
The New York Times puts it well: "Facing protests over use of force, police respond with more force."
And they are being egged on by President Donald Trump, who has described the protests as "acts of terror", called on governors to "dominate" the streets and threatened to deploy the military; Republican senators, who have urged the police to commit war crimes to suppress the protests; and conservative media, who portray all demonstrators as far-left radicals.
How does this end?
