Minnesota Governor Tim Wals spoke about the consequences for Americans protesting after the death of an African American while being detained by a police officer. It is reported by CNN.
He stated an increased risk of coronavirus spread. “I am deeply concerned that the situation is spreading at a very high speed. A sharp jump in COVID-19 awaits us, ”Wals warned.
The Governor of Minnesota also intimidated rioters in prison. According to him, there are enough places in state prisons to accept all those detained during the protests.
Earlier it was reported that the US police used tear gas and rubber bullets after rioters started pouring water bottles on law enforcement officers, and then came close to the cordon.
Dozens of US cities are seized by riots, which began after the death in Minneapolis of blackguard George Floyd, who died after a gross arrest. The US authorities said that any skirmishes with the police or threats to law enforcement agencies are regarded as an act of domestic terrorism. During such clashes, two policemen received gunshot wounds, one of whom died.
