The Pentagon has ordered the army to prepare a military police unit to be sent to Minneapolis, where protests are raging. The Associated Press wrote about it, citing sources.
According to the agency, soldiers from Fort Bragg in North Carolina and Fort Drama in New York were ordered to prepare for deployment within four hours.
Recall that mass protests began in Minneapolis and several other cities after the death of African American George Floyd in detention. A video was posted on the web in which police handcuffed Floyd and put him on the asphalt. One of the police officers stepped on Floyd’s neck with his knee. He asked to let go of his neck several times because he couldn’t breathe. George died in I.C.U.
After the protests started, four policemen were fired, one of them was charged with negligent manslaughter.
