Dozens arrested, officers hurt during Providence violence

Boston Herald

Gov. Gina Raimondo on Tuesday activated the National Guard and is considering a curfew in response to a violent night in Providence that she and top police officials say was not a protest over the death of George Floyd, but an organized effort to cause destruction. A crowd of hundreds of people that the head of the State Police described as a "mob" smashed storefront windows, stole merchandise, broke into a closed mall and torched a police cruiser in the predawn hours Tuesday. More than 60 people were arrested and as many as 10 police officers were injured when they were hit by rocks or bricks, authorities said. "What we saw last night was not a protest," the Democratic governor said at a midday news conference. "What we saw was an organized attack on our community."
