A New York Police Department vehicle went up in flames on the evening of May 29 during protests in Brooklyn, New York, sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis days earlier.

This footage shows protesters backing away from the burning vehicle while a small explosion can be heard. Later in the video, protesters can be seen rocking the charred van from side to side after the fire went out.

A swathe of protests were held in major cities across the US after video circulated of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinning Floyd, a black 46-year-old, to the ground with his knee on Floyd’s neck on May 25. Floyd died soon after.

    Maybe this is why the police in the story right below about driving thru the crowd they did it. With mob mentality there is stupidity and the element of being able to get away with anything. Police do need to fear for their lives in these situations. I know most people are going to say the mob is unarmed, are you sure ? are the police sure ? if overpowered they can take the cops gun. If you protest be smart, do not put yourself in harms way because of the crowd

    “No, police violence does not justify the rampages that erupted in Minneapolis. But as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. pointed out more than a half-century ago, “a riot is the language of the unheard.” To focus on the damage and looting misses the point. Were it not for the killing of Floyd, and the history of police behavior, there would have been no protests……But the threat comes not just from people with badges. It crops up in daily life in the most mundane ways: A white woman calling New York City police on a black man out birdwatching who had the gall to ask her to leash her dog. A white man — again in Minneapolis — calling security when four black men rejected his demand for identification proving that they had permission to use the gym in a building where they all worked. A Starbucks manager calling police in Philadelphia to arrest two black men who were waiting to meet a potential business partner…..That’s not the police sparking a racially framed encounter; it is white Americans surfacing the structural racism that, in its worst excesses, ends with the deaths of black Americans.”…. Floyd’s death, as Minneapolis City Councilwoman Andrea Jenkins said, “was a symbol for a knee on the neck of black America.” That knee has been there for an unconscionably long time. Too long.”
