BLM protests increase, more cops charged in Floyd killing: Weekly Check In with Lisa Durden

1 min read

Ark Republic’s weekly check in with Lisa Durden discusses growing US protests, and those who criticize when rebellions result in destruction of property. 

We also talk about more cops being charged in the George Floyd police killing, and how Minnesota’s Atty. General Keith Ellis, upgraded charges for fired Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin. 

Shifting to Washington DC we speak on ACLU and Black Lives Matter’s lawsuit against Donald Trump for use of excessive force against protesters, and journalist’s lawsuit against Minneapolis Police Department for obstructing them from exercising their first amendment rights.

We end by talking about the risks of protest in a Covid-19 world, and why people still demonstrate in a fun, engaging update with pop and cultural critic, Lisa Durden.
