2 banks burn to ground in San Diego suburb as protests turn to violence, looting

The violent unrest gripping the nation spread Saturday night to a suburb of San Diego, where rioters burned two banks to the ground and looted and destroyed many other businesses.

Peaceful protests over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis turned into riots as night fell on La Mesa, a suburb of about 60,000 people east of San Diego, leaving a trail of destruction.

They torched the Chase and Union banks next door to each other, Fox 5 reported. Images showed the fire engulfing one bank, leaving behind a gutted skeleton of lumber and twisted metal by morning.

Windows were smashed at many businesses, including a Goodwill store, a real-estate office and a popular bar. Daniel Buxton, the owner of Play It Again Sports, said he returned to his establishment to find “complete destruction.”

“Took what they could, destroyed what they could and got out,” he told local station KPBS. He added that looters used bats to destroy the inside and lit a fire which the sprinklers had doused.

Video of looters busting through glass windows and raiding a Walmart after midnight at the Grossmont Center in La Mesa was captured by KNSD.

San Diego police officers, aided by other law enforcement agencies, walked shoulder-to-shoulder through the streets after 2 a.m. Sunday, telling hundreds of protesters and observers that they would be arrested for unlawful assembly if they didn’t disperse.

“I think people are hurting and they’re angry and they’re trying to be heard because there’s no other way to get anyone’s attention,” Ally Kaiahua, a white woman, told The Associated Press about the property damage in La Mesa. “It’s unfortunate but this has been part of our history and how things get done because they don’t listen any other way.”

After the curfew lifted at 7 a.m. Sunday morning, volunteers began coming out to help clean up the destruction in La Mesa. Many carried trash bags and brooms, while others painted vandalized property, local news outlets reported.

"It was overwhelming to see this community come together,” Aaron Henderson, owner of a looted coffee shop, told KNSD.

Tanker truck drives into protesters as U.S. cities fear another night of violent protests

A tanker truck drove into a throng of protesters on a closed interstate near Minneapolis on Sunday, with the driver pulled from his rig and beaten, as major U.S. cities imposed curfews in fear of another night of demonstrations against police brutality descending into violence.

It did not appear that any marchers were struck by the truck as it moved through the crowd on the westbound lanes of Interstate 35, honking. The freeway was closed to traffic at the time.

A Reuters witness said the truck driver was dragged out of the cab of his tractor-trailer rig and beaten by protesters before he was taken into custody by Minneapolis police. A Reuters photo showed him shirtless and covering his face as he stood next to a police officer.

“Very disturbing actions by a truck driver on I-35W, inciting a crowd of peaceful demonstrators,” the Minneapolis Department of Public Safety said on Twitter. “The truck driver was injured & taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He is under arrest. It doesn’t appear any protesters were hit by the truck.”

Seriously ehn, Most nairalanders are a bunch of clout chasing hypocrites with their misplaced priorities.. How many ppl are killed, harassed, molested daily in dis country with little or no reaction from anyone. D same Yorubas, Igbos and Hausas who dont see eye to eye are the ones calling a white man racist. What is worse than the hatred a black man has for his fellow black man?

These are citizens that cherish themselves to the fullest.
They cherish every lives.

But in our darling country, some stupid dumb heads will first check the name of the person that died to confirm if he is from their region before they can know if to protest the police brutality or not.
Religion and ethnic bigots have taken over our land!

But see blacks and white coming together to fight for a just cause (A black man was killed by a white policeman) and you see that the numbers of white People fighting for justice almost outnumbered the back folks!
That even THE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA has no choice but to tell the FBI to make sure they act IMMEDIATELY on the investigation to this sad and emotional case.

One day, we will get there as a nation.
Maybe after some evil terrible things take out all the tribalistic idiots and animals from our darling nation.

....Baba 70 lives on......

America is on FIRE.

Where are the "this can't happen in a SANE CLIME" crew?

I guess America is now becoming a failed State.

I have always known that race wars are just waiting to happen just like volcanoe waiting to explode.
Trump has only made it worse with his narcissistic and delusional leaderless rants. Threatening to shoot protesters in the land of the free and brave? What a complete dotard this lying SOB Trump is.

This should also show all these naive kids on NL that all countries have their own issues and problems. No country on Earth is devoid of major problem. It might look pristine from afar but no country is devoid of issues and problems. They just differ from one country to another.
