Trump threatens to deploy military to quell Floyd protests as violence escalates

  • Violence and arson continue in dozens of US cities over the killing of Floyd, a Black man, in police custody by a White officer.
  • There was arson around White House on Sunday and Monday evening.
  • The widespread outpouring of outrage over Floyd's death is spilling on to other countries even.
  • The stream of protests was feeding on easily aroused European sensibilities, or lending China and Iran an opportunity.
  • On the Berlin wall, aside his visage, there are inciting graffiti scrawled of Floyd's last words, "I can't breathe.

WASHINGTON, June 1: The week-long racial violence over the killing of a Black man in police custody in Minneapolis continued across dozens of American cities on Monday.

The police used teargas and rubber bullets to quell the violent protests around the White House. Men on horseback tried to drive away the protesters in Lafayette Park across the road while the protesters burnt signposts and police barricades.

Cars and buildings were set ablaze and businesses were vandalized in Washington. Protesters and police had clashed near the White House on Sunday too.

President Donald Trump asked the Governors to "dominate" the protesters else, he said, "they will run over you." He blamed the ANTIFA, an anti-fascist, anti- capitalist left-leaning movement backed by Democrats for the escalating violence.

Trump on Monday evening threatened to use military to bring the situation under control as arson and looting continued.

The National Guards were deployed in 23 States and Washington DC.

Luxury shops like Gucci in New York were looted and several were set ablaze in many cities. Curfew was clamped on dozens of cities. In California, Long Beach,Riverside, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills were under curfew. Chicago mayor said there were 10,000 calls of looting cases.

In Kentucky one man was killed as the police returned fire. In Atlanta, White people manhandled a Black couple. Sporadic violence is reported from many cities, the violence and arson mainly occurring after sunset.

Manwhile, the report of a second autopsy commissioned by George Floyd's family released on Monday said he died of homicide by "mechanical asphyxiation" and he suffered cardiopulmonary arrest. He also had "arteriosclerosic heart disease." This differs from the medical examiner's report.

It all happened on May 25, in a Minneapolis police station lockup. A White police officer, Derek Chauvin,44, pinned George Floyd down, kneeled on his neck and squeezed his breath out. The 46-year old was a Black man, accused of traffic violation. Derek has been fired and arrested.

Protests began snowballing in US cities, venting all pentup anger against Trump. Unusually, a decisive action by the State was delayed.

Trump had then condemned the killing and assured justice will be done. However, he called the violent protesters "thugs."

The US Secret Service said in a statement to CNN that no one has breached the White House fence line during demonstrations in Washington.

The American media by and large portraying the Prez as the villain of the piece, reported Trump spending a Friday evening in the presidential bunker when the protesters came too close for comfort. Trump called it "fake news" while trolls mocked him.

The widespread outpouring of outrage over Floyd's death is spilling on to other countries even.

The stream of protests were feeding on easily aroused European sensibilities, or lending China and Iran an opportunity. There were solidarity rallies and protests in Auckland, London, Berlin, Copenhagen, in support of the protesters.

On the Berlin wall, aside his visage, there are inciting graffiti scrawled of Floyd's last words, "I can't breathe."

However, in Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison told demonstrators not to “import things happening in other countries here to Australia”.
