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.

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.
