Arrests of protesters in the United States due to elections...




The most violent riots occurred in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where over 500 protesters were arrested.





Protests due to the results of the presidential elections in a number of US cities lost their peaceful character, forcing the police to use force.

The most violent riots occurred in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where over 500 protesters were arrested.

More than 20 people were arrested in New York after several activists set fire to and clashed with police officers.

The New York City Police Department provided photos of knives and a stun gun seized during the protests.

“The use of weapons for peaceful protests is unacceptable. We are currently working to de-escalate the situation. Anyone who is caught with a weapon will be arrested,” the New York police said.

Demonstrations in the framework of the action Count every vote, requiring a recount of votes in the past presidential election, were also held in other US cities: in Portland (Oregon), Philadelphia (Pennsylvania), and Chicago (Illinois). Several people were also arrested in Portland.

Recall that in Portland in mid-October, during the protests, activists demolished the statues of the 16th and 26th US Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
