Protesters in cities across America took to the streets on Friday to protest police brutality following the killing of George Floyd while in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department.
In Atlanta, protesters defaced CNN's logo and broke windows at the company's headquarters.
Things escalated further as police began firing bean bag rounds from atop armored vehicles.
