All 50 states have seen protests over the last week, in the wake of police kneeling on the neck of George Floyd, resulting in his death. Washington, D.C. saw demonstrators who called for an end to racialized police violence, resulting in escalation by police using pepper spray, flash grenades and other riot control methods.
