6:02 am
this was the scene in brooklyn to your protesters chanting no justice no peace and a standoff with police outside a stadium there earlier demonstrations were also held around the new york supreme court and these are the scenes in los angeles a short while ago where it's a little after 8 in the evening protesters have blocked a freeway stopping traffic and earlier the white house was briefly locked down as crowds of protesters gathered outside police eventually broke up the large group hundreds also march through the streets of washington d.c. let's go to john hendren al jazeera john hendren is live for us at the scene in minneapolis so john as we said this has been a curfew in effect for about an hour now what is still happening there. well outside of this area of town the roads are largely empty and there's no one there but this is the epicenter this is the place where george floyd spent his last hours and as you can see behind me there are well if the cars weren't blocking that what
6:03 am
you could see is that there are maybe $100.00 people or so gathered there far fewer than have gathered in previous nights but it's also 2 hours after the 1st curfew has been set and that corner back there is where george floyd was arrested and where police held him down 3 of them with their knees one of them on his neck and a horse after that he was he died and this has been what has motivated the protests around the country that you were just talking about but today is a little bit of a lighter mood and the reason for that is that there have been charges today against one of those men and i talked to some people here i talked to one gentleman who had just been shot today he said with a rubber bullet in the leg but he said he was nonviolent he said what they're hoping for is to rebuild this city now he said he was against the looting and the damage in which whole city blocks were lit on fire but now we're still waiting to
6:04 am
see it's fairly early in the night the national guard hasn't shown up at all but one suspects that eventually they might also let's go back to the charges then john and kiran obviously there was there were no charges at 1st then the video came out then there was that delay and charges now there actually is a charge in the case tell us more about it. that's right yesterday we had this announcement of a major news conference and in that news conference they didn't announce charges they were federal prosecutors local prosecutors the f.b.i. all there and of course everybody here is watching the news they know what's going on and after that news conference did not. reduced charges it was a terrible night here in this city another raucous night flaming buildings at police confrontations and then today when you have the charges levied against derek shavon and he was actually taken into custody i think there was
6:05 am
a feeling that perhaps this city was taking this incident more seriously and what i'm hearing over here is a little more positive now there's there's talk of a movement going forward but people seem to feel that it least some of their requests have been met they're not by any means satisfied now we put together a story on what's been happening over the last 24 hours or so take a look. it is what protesters across the u.s. have been demanding the officer who held his knee on george floyd's neck has been arrested for many apps police officers are chopping has been charged by the head of the county attorney's office with murder and with manslaughter as minneapolis st still smolder following a 3rd night of riots the student governor is hoping the news will calm the violence in the streets minneapolis and st paul are on fire the fire still smoldering our streets the ashes are symbolic of decades and generations of
6:06 am
a pain of anguish unheard much like we failed to hear. george floyd. as he pleaded for his life as the world watched it is my expectation that justice for the officers involved in this will be swift that it will come in a timely manner that it will be fair that is what we've asked for. governor tim walz also called the arrest of a black c.n.n. journalist and his crew early friday by state police officers unacceptable i take full responsibility there is absolutely no reason something like this should happen calls were made immediately this is a very public apology to that team it should not happen i failed you last night and that in minneapolis riot police stand ready to confront a community that feels it's been betrayed national guard soldiers have also arrived
6:07 am
in the city requested by a mayor who is under pressure to bring the violence under control. this was a police station in flames on thursday night as anger directed at those who swear to serve and protect escalated not far away more burning shops looting and violence . protests have spread across the u.s. in denver demonstrators echoed the demand for justice already heard in new york and los angeles anger over the treatment of african-americans by the police is not new but right now it is very wrong. in louisville in kentucky the death of george floyd has reopened old wounds with protesters demanding justice for an african-american woman who was shot dead by police 2 months ago. it is this video of the last moment of george floyd's life a police officer nearly on his neck that is driving the outrage 2 president trump is weighed in calling the protesters bugs and suggesting national guard troops
6:08 am
shoot looters the republican president also to game against the city's democratic mayor mayor jacob fry fired back donald trump knows nothing about the strength of minneapolis we are strong as hell is this a difficult time period yes but you better be damn sure that we're going to get through this as the protests in george floyd's name continue to grow the leaders of major cities across the u.s. are hoping that promises of swift justice will be enough to calm tensions. that way so to put this all in perspective at this time on the 1st night of the protests there were 8000 people filling the streets now we've got a few 100 they are here in violation of the citywide curfew but they are peaceful right now it wasn't much after this just 24 hours ago it wasn't much after this time that the police station the 3rd precinct police station was stormed and that's
6:09 am
where the officers came from who were arrested george floyd so this is a completely different atmosphere you know what happens if the national guard marches in the valley don't know and there's a lot of night left to go we'll see what happens ok john hendren live for us in minneapolis and thank you they picking as a board member of the communities united against police brutality he says restraining and retraining and situational changes are needed to address the underlying problems within the u.s. police force. no officer will ever testify against another officer and so we see that not just the one officer who had his knee on his neck that is the grossest violation but that 3 other officers did nothing about it at the time when it was clear to everyone else on the scene that george floyd was being killed that's what really matters is the actions of the officers and in all the deaths we
6:10 am
have seen in minneapolis no officer ever testifies against another so even if their words are sincere it doesn't show in the actions that we've seen here how quickly the officers were fired is very unusual i think part of that is due to this incident being so so horrifying to anybody who watches the video but remember before that video came out in public the police information officer was trying to claim that the officers noted that he was having a medical incident and they assisted him so it was only when the other video came out that they were forced to tell the real story they lied in their original statement because they thought they could get away with it the people who are saying these things are no more honest now than they were then they just got caught so yes after a particular group is incident like this there's got to want to be

6:13 am
that he and house as well as the severity of actions that he did announce depending on the implementation of these actions this is probably the nuclear option that this initiation of do you think china will react and respond i think china has to respond in this case there are so many actions that the trump administration announced today that if they don't respond and domestically they leadership risks looking weak to their domestic audience president trump gave a long list of grievances about china's economic actions there's nothing new there he's done it before what was interesting in his 10 minutes in front of the cameras he made no mention of chinese president xi a man he regards a strong a man he's praised in the past even for his handling of the coronavirus bric alan fischer al-jazeera at the chinese embassy in washington. still ahead on al-jazeera kicked out with nowhere to go why residents of astronomy club is capital they're
