Curfew in Minnesota: cities affected, schedules and restrictions
Mayor Jacob Frey issued Emergency Regulations imposing a curfew throughout the City of Minneapolis beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday 29 which extends through the weekend.
Shaken and angry, Minneapolis' young mayor Frey stood in front of television cameras over and over this week - first to decry the police killing of George Floyd, and on Friday to impose a curfew as parts of his city burned in ongoing protests.
Disturbing footage showing a Minneapolis law enforcement officer pressing his knee into Floyd's neck and the ensuing unrest after the 46-year-old's death have drawn international attention to Mayor Jacob Frey, a 38-year-old attorney and former professional athlete who ran for office on a platform of reforming the police.
"Being black in America should not be a death sentence," Frey declared at a news conference after Floyd's killing, and called openly for the arrest of the officer involved, Derek Chauvin.
What started as largely peaceful protests for George Floyd have turned to outright looting and domestic terrorism in our region. We need you to stay home tonight.— Mayor Jacob Frey (@MayorFrey) May 30, 2020
After Friday's curfew imposed by Frey, Minnesota Governer Tim Walz later issued the executive order that implemented the curfew in both cities with other cities in the area also allowed to set their own curfews.
