US police shot as Trump pushes crackdown

US police shot as Trump pushes crackdown

New York's mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday extended a night-time curfew for the city until June 7 following outbreaks of violence and looting during anti-racism protests gripping America.

The NYPD told reporters that the arrest was for unlawful assembly - multiple outlets reported, citing authorities, that de Blasio was one of dozens of people who refused to leave a lower Manhattan intersection when ordered.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, had previously rejected imposing a curfew, as many other cities across the US have done to try to curb violence that erupted amid demonstrations over Floyd's May 25 death, police brutality and racial injustice. The New York Post reported she was released and given a desk appearance ticket.

De Blasio said military troops would create "a risky scenario", while Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock likewise warned such a move would just lead to more violence and destruction.

Police said almost 700 people were arrested and several officers were injured during the chaos Monday night and early Tuesday.

The killing of Floyd by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has seen protests, violent demonstrations, mostly of the black race over police brutality, with several U.S. states activating National Guard troops.

Neither the union, Twitter, nor the mayor's office immediately returned TPM's requests for comment. Andrew Cuomo said, as the governor mused that he could "displace" his fellow Democrat and take over his duties.

"I stand behind the protesters and their message but unfortunately there are people who are looking to take advantage of and discredit this moment for their own personal gain", said Cuomo.

New York City imposed a late-night curfew Monday that failed to prevent another night of destruction, including arrests at the iconic Macy's store on 34th Street, following protests over George Floyd's death. We're going to work actively and strategically to stop any disorder. "It doesn't compute for New York City to have a closing time".

She was part of a group of about 100 people that threw things at police, though she didn't throw anything, according to sources for The New York Daily News.

"If people think it will, they don't understand what's going on", Shea said on NBC's "Today".

"I support and protect peaceful protest in this city", said de Blasio. Hundreds of people were arrested.

"It is not the place of an officer to pull a gun in the middle of a crowd knowing there are peaceful protesters in that crowd", he said.

The mayor of Washington DC said the troops who unleashed teargas on protesters outside the White House so the president could stage a photo-op at nearby St John's church were military police, not members of the local department.

De Blasio reacted after videos were posted to social media, which showed protestors moving a yellow barrier in front a police vehicle in Brooklyn.

Meanwhile de Blasio is praising the vast majority of police officers.

"That was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops".

"We've done it in other cities in NY, and we've seen it work, but a curfew is not a silver bullet", he said before the curfew was put in place.
