America in crisis: Days of rage sweep US cities (Special report)

Mass protests, looting, vandalism and arson rocking cities across the US in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a police officer. The Minnesota National Guard was deployed after a Minneapolis police station was torched by rioters. A CNN news crew was arrested during the commotion. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been arrested for his role in Floyd’s death and is being charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Rick Sanchez contrasts the Trump administration's response to these protests to its characterization of violent civil unrest in Hong Kong. Then we analyze the situation with “Watching the Hawks” co-host Ameshia Cross, Ned Ryun of American Majority, retired DC Metro police officer Ronald Hampton and author and filmmaker Sean Stone. The RT America’s Faran Fronczak reports on the violence in Minneapolis and its aftermath before investigative journalist Ben Swann joins the discussion.
