Inslee slams Trump, Seattle George Floyd protests continue

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said Monday that while the damage from weekend protests that turned violent must be condemned and those responsible prosecuted, “we will not allow that to obscure the justice of the underlying protest.” Inslee has activated the National Guard following vandalism and thefts in stores and shopping malls in multiple cities following protests over the police killing of George Floyd. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced that the city would again have a curfew Monday evening following days of protests that turned violent, with storefronts smashed and items stolen. At a news conference, Durkan said the curfew would begin at 6 p.m. and last until 5 a.m. There were curfews in Seattle on Saturday and Sunday nights as well.
