DENVER (KDVR) — A midday protest was held Friday in Denver calling for justice in the case of George Floyd, a black man who died in-custody in Minneapolis while pleading that he could not breathe.
The crowd gathered outside the Colorado State Capitol just before noon, then marched to the City and County Building. The demonstration moved down the 16th Street Mall before returning to the Capitol.
This second day of protests drew a large crowd but as of mid-afternoon did not escalate as protests did the night before.
The evening protest Thursday stretched into the night as large crowds moved through the city, with some damage along the way. Police spent hours working to break up crowds.
