Protests continue throughout the United States, driven by anger over the death of Minnesota black man George Floyd in custody, who was asphyxiated when an officer knelt on his neck for just under 9 minutes.

The violence and widespread rioting in Minneapolis resulted in Governor Tim Walz calling in the state National Guard to quell disorder, with a curfew enacted in the city to confine people to their homes.

Tanya Kerssen was standing on her front porch, and filmed a procession of police walking down her street. They shot at her and other residents of her house with paintballs. The video has since spread throughout social media.

Ms Kerssen joined News Breakfast to discuss the ongoing unrest in Minneapolis.
