KPD Says Protests Peaceful Monday Night

Knoxville Police say protests in downtown Monday night showed no signs of riots or vandalism.

Demonstrators got together with signs walking through downtown. At one point, the protesters took a knee and held a moment of silence to honor the life of George Floyd. Protests remained calm in Nashville and Memphis as well.

After what police are calling a riot broke out in Market Square Saturday night, local activists are condemning violent demonstrations. Saturday night, rioters broke multiple windows of local businesses, also damaging some large flower pots and turning over several trash cans in the area.

Local activist Constance Every says the Black Lives Matter movement had nothing to do with Saturday night’s riot. Every says she does not support these kinds of demonstrations.
