The George Floyd memorial and surrounding areas in Minneapolis have reportedly become sites of extreme tension as the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin begins. While violence has broken out, police have been barred from even entering the area. In a video posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday, Brian Entin of News Nation Now interviewed a protester named Kim Griffin, whose nephew was shot and killed near the memorial last weekend. She said police were not even allowed to enter the square as her nephew lay bleeding. “Police were not allowed to get into that area,” she said. “He was carried outside the zone of George Floyd square.” When Entin questioned who had the authority to bar the police from the area, Griffin said that “it was made clear law enforcement was not welcome to penetrate that zone,” which she called “an atrocity.”
