Massive crowds gathered Tuesday to protest at the site where George Floyd was violently arrested a day earlier. Floyd repeatedly told a police officer kneeling on his neck that he couldn't breath, but despite the pleas for his life, the officer didn't let up for more than seven minutes, and Floyd died hours later.
People gathered on the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue, where Floyd was arrested for suspicion of forgery outside a deli. After he was taken into custody, the 46-year-old was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to CBS Minnesota.

People are rioting to make sure corrective action is taken.

Riots are a excuse/opportunity to "LOOT FREE SHIZ"
It's why they start 90% of the time for cover.
So are you saying there's no reason to protest other than to get free shiz?

Rioting is an overreaction when people haven't even waited to see if any corrective action will be taken.
