America of opportunity turns to iron and fire

Clashes, fires and looting in several cities mark protests. African-American police killings were the trigger for a multiracial rebellion.

Smashed, black, a skeleton, the Minneapolis club was the workplace of George Floyd, 46, the ill-fated black victim of unexplained police abuse, eight days ago. A year ago, I was doing extra shifts there, a history of improving the end of the month. I went on Tuesdays. Other nights were covered by a policeman, on gratuitous service. Derek Chauvin. The man who killed Floyd, with his knee asphyxiating his neck against the asphalt.
