Lloyd protests spead to other citiesViolent protests over the death of a black man in police custody rocked a Minneapolis neighborhood for a second straight night as angry crowds looted stores, set fires, and left a path of damage that stretched for miles.

The protests that began late Wednesday and stretched into Thursday morning were the most destructive yet since the death of George Floyd, who was seen on video gasping for breath during an arrest in which an officer kneeled on his neck for almost eight minutes. In the footage, Mr. Floyd pleads that he cannot breathe before he slowly stops talking and moving.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey appealed to the governor to activate the National Guard and asked for calm. "Please, Minneapolis, we cannot let tragedy beget more tragedy," he said on Twitter.
