Minnesota Governor Involves National Guard After Protests Escalate To Looting Stores

Minnesota Gov.

Tim Walz activated the National Guard in response to looting in Minneapolis.

The looting began after escalated protests following the death of George Floyd at the hands of policemen.

According to Business Insider, a police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck for around eight minutes, ultimately killing him.

While Walz said the anger people feel was “justified,” he said the “unlawful and dangerous activity” taking place wasn’t.
