In Washington, 75 people have been charged with many violations including assault, destruction of property, breaking and entering, and other crimes associated with the riots. There have been more than 100 arrests in Washington as a result of the protests and riots related to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
In Washington there have also been “significant injuries” to several federal law enforcement officers this week, including over 50 Park Police officers and more than 30 Secret Service agents, according to federal law enforcement officials. Most injuries were the result of rocks and bricks hitting the officers, resulting in head injuries.
New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot F. Shea said Wednesday that water bottles hurled at police were often filled with cement, meant to inflict harm, and Molotov cocktails have frequently been hurled at buildings where people were sheltering.
Shea also described how pre-staged bricks were discovered in Brooklyn and Queens ready to be used in riots, and construction sites in Manhattan had bricks stolen, believed to be used in the riots.
Federal law enforcement officials are looking at “ways in which we can exploit phones and data communications that could give us a mosaic to see if there’s a coordinated command and control, that’s what we’re looking for,” reported Fox News.
