"We want you to continue to share your voices," an officer said over a megaphone through a chain-link fence.

"Will you start with investigating your own police shootings?" a protester with a bullhorn responded, just inches away on the other side of the barrier.

In other parts of Portland, police clashed with protesters using tear gas and stun grenades on Sunday (May 31) as the United States entered its sixth day of protests over the death of George Floyd, a black Minnesota man who died last week after a white cop pressed his knee into his back.

Despite officials imposing a 8:00 p.m curfew across the city, protesters continued to vent their anger over the death of Floyd.

Aerial footage from broadcaster NBC showed police officers and protesters in standoff.

At least three fires were seen burning in the streets.

The arrest on murder charges on Friday (May 29) of Derek Chauvin, the police officer seen kneeling on Floyd's neck, failed to satisfy protesters.

Three officers who stood by as Floyd died have yet to be charged.

It was none other than Karla Fox, the 'Trump-loving grandma' of 18-year-old Gabriel 'Rico' Agard-Berryhill. Fox says she ID'd her grandson by the olive-colored vest she bought him with the word 'ICONS' on it. I love him to death.

Omar Failing In Money Race

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is in a tough fight for re-election in her Minnesota district. Antone Melton-Meaux is challenging Omar in an August primary race. Melton-Meaux has raised seven times more than Omar in the last fundraising cycle. The Washington Examiner says Melton-Meaux raised $3.2 million between March and April. Melton-Meaux reported having $2 million in cash on hand to keep him afloat ahead of the Aug. 11 primary. Omar did not fare as well as her competitor when it came to fundraising. Omar raised just $471,624 in the same time frame, roughly one-seventh of Melton-Meaux's haul. The congresswoman's campaign told the Star Tribune that she has $1.1 million in cash on hand.
