The death of George Floyd, the unarmed black man who died on Memorial Day while in police custody in Minneapolis, has been met with nationwide protests, similar to the movements seen after the deaths of Eric Garner or Michael Brown, other unarmed black men who died at the hands of police.

Some of the protests in major American cities have resulted in violence. Police have fired tear gas and nonlethal rounds on protestors, some of whom have thrown bottles and other objects, and burned cars and buildings.

Demonstrations in western Wyoming and eastern Idaho have so far remained largely peaceful.
