Riots in the Brooklyn Center (Minnesota) city continue for the fourth night in a row after the death of African-American Daunte Wright. CNN reported that some protesters are behaving aggressively, the authorities call on demonstrators to go home, and the police are again forced to use force.
For the third night in a row, a curfew is in effect in the Brooklyn Center, which began at 10 pm and will last until 06 am. Simultaneously, the authorities of the largest city in the state – Minneapolis, a suburb of which is Brooklyn Center, did not impose a curfew on Thursday night.
The largest gathering of protesters, as in previous days, was observed on Wednesday near the Brooklyn Center police station. As CNN notes, the participants of the demonstrations tried to get through the barrier installed on Tuesday around the site. Some protesters threw various objects at the police, as well as detonated firecrackers. Law enforcement officers were forced to use tear gas, stun grenades, and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.
In total, several hundred people take part in the protest actions. Local authorities warned the protesters that the police would detain demonstrators who did not comply with the demand to go home with the curfew. Last night, more than 60 people were detained in the city.
Earlier on Wednesday, the US Attorney’s office for the US District of Washington charged former Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter with second-degree negligent homicide. She could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000. State authorities later released Potter on bail.
