Kobe, Gigi Bryant murals spared from George Floyd protests in LA

Black Lives Matter protests have filled the streets in the United States after the death of George Floyd last week.
      Not all rallies, however, remained peaceful as some took advantage of the situation to loot while some resorted to vandalism.         That was the case in several cities like Los Angeles where riots have also escalated as the police clashed with protesters.
But amid the chaos, there’s a common thing in the city that was left largely untouched.
Murals of the late Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant were saved from the destruction.
Vanessa Bryant, wife of the Los Angeles Lakers legend and mother of Gigi, couldn’t be more thankful after seeing how the murals have remained intact.

Vanessa shared her appreciation on her Instagram Stories Monday.
Kobe and Gigi along with seven others died last January in a helicopter crash in Calabasas.
Kobe played 20 seasons in the NBA all with the Lakers where he won five championships.

Disney Springs, the shopping area located on Disney grounds in Florida, has come up with a unique way to encourage patrons to social distance and wear masks.

The stormtroopers also walk the grounds and give out warnings such as “Stay in your sector!” if people get too close.

The troopers also joke with one another about patrons wearing masks.

Chattanooga Police Chief Posts Powerful Message Directed At Police Officers Who ‘Don’t Have An Issue’ With Death Of George Floyd

It’s not hyperbole to say this past weekend was one of the worst in America’s long and complicated history.

Peaceful protests in the name of George Floyd during the day turned to violence and looting at night.

Innocent bystanders were dragged through the streets of Las Vegas, pushing down old men, and a tanker truck tried to plow into thousands of people.

While the majority of the news was tough to watch, there were some brief moments of hope in places like Michigan, and now, Tennessee.
After the video of George Floyd’s arrest and his subsequent death, a Tennessee police chief tweeted his thoughts on the matter and made a powerful statement directed at his own officers and police across the country.

Chattanooga Police Department Chief David Roddy said police officers who don’t see an issue with the graphic video showing former Minneapolis police officer David Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck as the 46-year-old repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe,” should turn in their badges.

“There is no nee…
