“Unfortunately the actions of a few agitators are hijacking the memory and life of George Floyd. To use this tragedy to inflict harm on our community is inexcusable. These are a few items confiscated today that were intended to disrupt and cause damage to our city,” police tweeted.

Five officers were injured and treated at the hospital.

Firefighters put out 50 small fires.

The city of Denver enacted a curfew for Saturday and Sunday nights and Gov. Jared Polis activated the Colorado National Guard in hopes of stopping protests that have wreaked havoc across the city.
