Violence erupted all over the United States Friday night, in the wake of George Floyd‘s horrific death … and there were some horrific moments on the streets.
A protester was bodyslammed early Saturday at Atlanta’s Lenox Square Mall. She was running from cops with her male friend … they ran to their car. After she got in the passenger seat, a cop dragged her out of the car and a struggle ensued. The officer picks the woman off the ground and bodyslams her.
The woman was handcuffed and taken to jail. We don’t know what lead to the confrontation.
There were many other violent incidents as protests took over the streets in D.C., New York City, Atlanta, Philly, Los Angeles, San Jose, Kentucky and many other cities. Buildings were burned, confrontations between police and protesters were abundant.
A protester in New York City was viciously thrown to the ground by a cop, and at least on NYC City Councilman is asking that assault charges be filed against him.
