Over 10,000 people have been arrested as protests continue across U.S
Nationwide protests against racism and police brutality have seen more than 10,000 people arrested, citing a tally of known arrests in the country. Three former Minneapolis police officers were charged with aiding and abetting murder in connection with the death of George Floyd in their custody. And Derek Chauvin, a fourth former officer who had already been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, will now be charged with second-degree murder.
Nationwide protests against racism and police brutality have seen more than 10,000 people arrested, the Associated Press reported on Thursday, citing a tally of known arrest in the U.S.
The number of people being arrested in the U.S. has grown by hundreds each day, the report said, as protesters took to the streets and encountered a heavy police presence and curfews that gave law enforcement officers increased power to arrest.
Los Angeles accounted for more than a quarter of arrests nationwide, Associated Press reported, the highest of any city in the country. The largest city in California was followed by New York, Dallas and Philadelphia, respectively.
