01) Twitter Strikes Back Against Trump, Flags Tweet


“The war between Twitter and Trump has just entered a new phase.

President Donald Trump tweet early Friday on the civil unrest in Minnesota, which was deemed to have violated Twitter rules for glorifying violence, contains a quote which is drawing attention given its historical context.

“When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” Trump wrote, just before 1 a.m. ET on Friday.

In 1967, Walter Headley, who was the Miami police chief at the time, made the same remark when talking about measures he planned to take against demonstrators.

01) George Floyd’s Murderer Arrested


“Police Officer Derek Chauvin has been arrested.

The mayor of Minneapolis imposed a curfew Friday after the county prosecutor charged the fired Minneapolis police officer seen in a video with his knee on George Floyd’s neck with third-degree murder.

Derek Chauvin also faces a charge of second-degree manslaughter.

Floyd’s family and their attorney, Benjamin Crump, are upset Chauvin wasn’t charged with a more serious offense.

“We expected a first-degree murder charge. We want a first-degree murder charge. And we want to see the other officers arrested,” Crump and the family said in a statement. “We call on authorities to revise the charges to reflect the true culpability of this officer.
