WATCH protesters vandalize CNN office in Atlanta, set POLICE CAR on fire

WATCH protesters vandalize CNN office in Atlanta, set POLICE CAR on fire
An angry crowd protesting the killing of George Floyd marched on CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta after police dispersed a rally elsewhere in the city, setting fire to squad cars, smashing windows and defacing a company logo.

As demonstrations erupt across the nation over the killing of George Floyd – a Minneapolis man who died at the hands of police – protesters in Georgia’s capital ended up at the network’s main headquarters on Friday.

Footage shared on social media showed a raucous crowd as they rallied at the building’s entrance, blocked from entering by a police line inside.

Police cars parked nearby were not spared by the protesters, one even set ablaze while others had windows smashed out.

A number of armored vehicles and additional law enforcement were brought in to reinforce the heavy police presence as the standoff continued, with at least 18 officers clad in riot gear blocking the entrance of the headquarters, according to CNN.
