Footage taken on the evening of May 27 showed an AutoZone store in Minneapolis being ransacked, shortly before a fire broke out, destroying the store by the following morning.

This video was taken inside the AutoZone on East Lake Street, shortly after 9 pm local time. Nearby businesses, including a Target, were also looted as protests against the police killing of George Floyd turned violent.

Video taken the following morning showed the AutoZone lying in ruins. Also destroyed overnight was a six-story apartment building that had been under construction.

Protests in Minneapolis and other American cities have grown in the days since Floyd’s death on May 25.

Video taken at the scene of his arrest showed Floyd, 46, slip out of consciousness as a police officer, identified as Derek Chauvin, forced his knee into Floyd’s neck while pinning him to the street. Credit: @ianrahs via Storyful

    Remember the Korean shop owners on the roof during the Rodney King riots? We need more like this

    I understand people are upset but looting does not make the situation better.

    Yes, because looting and destroying the community that sustains you will make you feel that much better? I don't connect the two.
    And some 700 miles away, thugs tore apart and looted downtown Columbus last night and into this morning. A community that has nothing to do with Floyd, or his death. And a police force that has a really good reputation of policing the community, regardless of race.
    Did those bottles of wine that you broke or stole from the wine and chocolate shop make you feel better as a human being? Did breaking the windows at the Ohio Theatre make it right? Or smashing the window at Barley's Brewing Company, one of the oldest craft breweries in Columbus, set the community straight? Stop taking your frustrations out on innocent people and businesses that have nothing to do with Mr. Floyd's death.

    AutoZone, it is not at all a necessity to have stores in this city nor this state. Move out for you own protection. The states government and the local government can't or won't.

    So what we learned is when someone is killed by police, its free shopping day.
