All over the country (including in Akron as seen above), people have taken to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died while in police custody and whose death was later ruled a homicide by a medical examiner.

Many of these protests are peaceful, but still others have turned destructive — including in downtown Cleveland — and properties have been damaged.
