It seems each passing day since the brutal, senseless murder of George Floyed by Minneapolis police officers brings another wave of chaos and terror. Most recently in the form of a semi truck driving through protestors peacefully demonstrating in honor of George Floyd on the 35W bridge near downtown Minneapolis.
