Several buildings were damaged during the protests over George Floyd's death, as seen on Monday.
On the night of May 28, several cases of damages and arson were reported, including at the 3rd Precinct, which was «overrun and heavily damaged by fire» according to a criminal complaint.
A Minnehaha liquor store, as well as a Target and Aldi were also targeted.
«None of this was done with love in mind. So we want to rebuild all these buildings, because this stuff can be rebuilt. George is gone forever, he's never coming back. What we stand for has to mean something. And so we want to rebuild this community with love, we want to rebuild this community with family,» said the member of a non-governmental organisation, Kornell Griffen, who was present in the area on Monday to distribute food and drinks to the homeless.
The killing of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis on May 25, after ex-police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes, sparked a wave of protests against racism and police brutality worldwide.
