Los Angeles, Calif. — Black Lives Matter protests have continued in the City of Angels for over a week in response to the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis Police. Floyd's death was the result of an officer kneeling into his neck for almost ten minutes despite being handcuffed.
While there was widespread looting in some parts of Los Angeles County last weekend, this weekend proved to be more peaceful as crowds continue to turn out in large numbers. Those partaking in the protests are not as concerned with the threat of the Wuhan coronavirus as they view turning out in large groups to protest police brutality as being more important than social distancing.
