Following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers on Monday, demonstrations broke out across the country. When many people lined the streets of Atlanta, protesters broke into the windows of the University Football Hall of Fame in the city center, according to report from Eric Stirgus from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Before law enforcement arrived at the scene, people were seen looting the building, according to the Stirgus report. Some protesters reportedly threw garbage cans and other objects through the outside of the building, and some ran inside to retrieve items.

Floyd’s death has been trigger a lot of reactions from the world of sports. Former NBA player Stephen Jackson leads a press conference in Minneapolis on Friday, speak with rude emotions about a man she calls “my twin sister.”
“I’m here because they won’t demean the character of George Floyd, my twin sister,” Jackson said Friday. “Often when the police do things that they know are wrong, the first thing they do is try to cover it up and bring up your background to make it look like a bull —- they are doing well.
“When was the murder commensurate? But if it was the black man’s approval. You could not tell me when the man knelt on my sister’s neck, taking his life with his hand in his pocket that the grin on his face did not say, ‘I am protected.’ “
On Friday, Colin Kaepernick promised to do it pay top defense attorney for those arrested protesting police brutality in the Minneapolis area through the charity arm, the Know Your Rights Camp.
