Clashes continue for 5th night as anger boils over in dozens of cities across the US

"In dozens of cities yesterday large mostly peaceful demonstrations devolved into chaos in Nashville Miami Seattle and Salt Lake City Pittsburgh Phoenix New York and frankly too many other places to name protesters expressed their rage at the death of George Floyd police brutality and racism there were violent confrontations with police and police crackdown also violently they're also mass arrests and injuries among demonstrators journalists and police at least a dozen major cities declared curfews others called on the National Guard which has been historically used in response to major civil unrest there were scenes of National Guard marching through some residential neighborhoods ordering people to stay inside we go now to Los Angeles where members of the National Guard were also deployed overnight and a curfew was put in place as a state of emergency was declared NPR's Nathan rott is in a Laney joins us now Nate walk us through what happened yesterday so there is a massive peaceful protesters started around noon yesterday was in the Fairfax district in west LA which is kind of a trendy neighborhood with high end retail in a big outdoor mall and people were protesting against police violence as they are all over the country they were memorializing George Floyd the black man who died after being pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police officers and you know by all accounts it was peaceful respectful until a little later in the afternoon when we started seeing reports of police cars being set on fire and just a total breakdown of the situation this often happens a protest right when things shift as things go into the night do we know what happened yeah that's the obviously that was a little surprising loop usually these like shift to happen and I distorted broad daylight mid afternoon which is I think very concerning to a lot of city officials so you know on social media people are blaming the police for escalating tensions for responding with tear gas in this sort of militarized riot gear that has become so comically become a place around the country city officials have so far blame bad eggs in the crowd for setting things off and that's something we've been hearing in a lot of places that it's a small group of people who are agitating the situations of course that's now been politicized even with the U. S. Attorney General blaming anarchists and leftists without you know providing any proof of that but it's really hard to say what makes the situation situation shift tensions are obviously very high so it doesn't take much to spark something now doesn't we saw videos of looting and fires in many cities around the country last night it was also the case another right yeah number of retail stores in that Fairfax area were broken into goods were stolen some were set on fire I know firefighters are dealing with those fires throughout the night that prompted Ellie's mayor Eric Garcetti to announce a city wide curfew which cut a lot of people off guard because he announced an hour before it went into effect but here he is explaining why they did it and alluding to a violent protests in nineteen ninety two for following Rodney king we've seen this before in Los Angeles when the violence escalate no one wins and so everybody has to be responsible for owning this moment what do you wear a badge or whether you hold a sign I'm asking all of Los Angeles to take a deep breath and a step back for a moment it doesn't seem like the curfew worked briefly yeah the crowd started to sent that out even before the curfew started I know in other parts of the state Sacramento San Diego other large can confrontations between crowds and police I think you know what it's going to be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of days that's NPR's Nate rott in LA thank you so much yeah I think you look so we've been hearing how the nation is pulsing with anger with demands for racial justice some of that anger has translated into literal fire and for some small business owners that means there is stab each man is a casualty of the unrest and partially the Fadhel followed one of Minneapolis family and sent the story on the south side of Minneapolis the feeling and her family walk up to the door of what was my Mississippi is kitchen volunteer neighborhood walks out sorry the first time we've seen the restaurant after days of inside the walls are charred black the kitchen reduced to rubble glass and water swimming in puddles as community members were to sweep away the destruction of the looks around stunned her daughter's side as with their very very I completely I don't know how they're going to recover this her mother a Somali immigrant opened the restaurant two years ago but her tire savings in the midst of the health pandemic she closed the restaurant and she had to choose between paying for insurance and paying staff system via chose her staff that means there are no funds to rebuild this weekend her mother had planned to re opened her restaurant as the city started easing stay at home orders she spent over four thousand dollars on preparation how would it not only me many obvious she says it's not only her it's the whole street the city around her community members are sweeping boarding up buildings and helping each other almost every business on this block is damaged she speaks to Molly as her daughter interprets everything that has happened and every even though I know that I'm not gonna be able to compact discs from this economically but what has happened to George's life is not so cannot be exchanged for lotus I hope that he gets adjusted the freezer at the oven the tables they can be replaced but George for its life she says that cannot be replaced please the African American man who died after a white police officer India's next to the ground with his that's now fired officer Derek shopping has been arrested and charged with death has prompted mass protests that have erupted across the country in a call for racial justice in the rebel side defines the sign she made for her mother when the restaurant first opened none of the fiscal she loves because she always cooks sided digs out a few morning next most artifacts here I got it from this comes from somebody she puts them into a tiny pile of what is salvageable outside is the power of all that is lost her sister beyond the locks in to help she looks around but the truth is things like this happen when people feel powerless and something has to change he said she hopes the protests translate into motivated voters because back to her is real power she and her sisters started the big difference together inside the kitchen in the back so we can assess the damage it's a tunnel black walls burned debris I'm sorry she is upset because the way I just I just want to see the dentist in the kitchen alone for a moment staring into that black tunnel and then joins her family outside where people are coming together to clear the rubble with everything unfolding the pandemic has slipped many people's minds I forgot have you seen you shake hands with people twenty twenty we hear you we see we went from one crisis to the next to the next sizes now she spends her nights both protesting but also trying to protect other people stores and restaurants from destruction like emotionally torn like you're in there I don't think this is right but at the same time people are crying for help seeing six overnight there were more clashes more cries for justice as protesters demanded that all four of the fired officers involved in the death of George Floyd be prosecuted Floyd is a symbol of the many deaths of black people in police custody sided says she
