Protests against police brutality continued through Tuesday, one day after President Trump warned he would dispatch troops to restore order in states that don't stamp out the demonstrations. A growing number of cities have enacted curfews, and several pushed the curfews to as early as 2 p.m., seeking to prevent further clashes between police and protesters. The protests are mostly peaceful, although some took a turn on Monday night after law enforcement officials used pepper spray, tear gas, and rubber bullets to disperse crowds. Trump on Monday told governors during a phone call that they should use force to "dominate" protesters. Demonstrations began after George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died in police custody in Minneapolis last week.
