Peaceful protesters showed up in force to downtown Atlanta on Friday night, May 30, in response to the recent killing of George Floyd. However, things took a dark turn as the night went on. Police appeared at the protest in force as a response to growing tension. Ultimately, the night ended with cases of vandalism, arson and several confrontations with police. The protest devolved into a riot.
Protesters have taken to the streets each night since. On June 12, however, 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks was shot to death by Atlanta police just outside of a Wendy's on University Avenue. Since then, Atlanta protesters have taken to the streets.
