"Let's go to Minneapolis now we've got NPR's Adrian Florido agent good morning good morning look not only did we see protests all across the country last night we saw a very heavy police response as well as National Guard response can you tell us about that yeah well the national guard's been activated in in several states including California Ohio Georgia and here in Minnesota where I am as well as in Washington DC so I met many cities we saw not only police in riot gear facing off against protesters but also troops at writing through through the streets in military vehicles in addition to those large number of troops and police what about the tactics they're using there's been a lot of criticism of their tactics people of that been posting videos of protesters being tear gassed hit with rubber bullets attacks on journalists in in New York there's a video of a police cruiser driving into protesters a video that mayor bill de Blasio called upsetting but even with this massive response police around the country have struggled to take control there were violent clashes with police in Chicago chaotic protests in New York and Salt Lake City one person killed in Indianapolis I'm in LA LA as you mentioned the the the the the mayor issued a curfew order and and deployed the National Guard and other cities have the National Guard on standby hoping to prevent the kind of damage that we've seen here in in Minneapolis and there's been mass arrests and injuries on both sides of police and protesters what was it like last night in Minneapolis well over the last few days police had been completely unable to control them the looting and rioting on the streets here and so large swaths of the city of burnt because the police and firefighters in many instances didn't even try to respond but last night things were were different police were out in full force patrolling the streets with with the help of the National Guard and they were determined to take control of the streets they they used tear gas here too they they used rubber bullets and police lines to to disperse protesters still really furious over at George Floyd's killing and and police violence in general and I can tell you Lou the police mostly did take control here there was very little damage reported last night to to to build businesses another property and I don't believe any major fires reported in Minneapolis last night either so what's happening there do you think the unrest is subsiding it's hard to say things still feel very tenuous here many people are still furious like I said over what the police did to George Floyd and though many people did obey the city's eight PM curfew last night many did not listen to what this young man named Q.
