Protests began peaceful Saturday before noon, with thousands of people gathering in their cars or on foot near the Salt Lake City Public Safety Building. After nearly 12 hours and the dispersion of people, graffiti, smashed windows and the remains of two burned vehicles littered downtown. This is what clean-up efforts look like in downtown.

Public works crews began around midnight to clean debris, graffiti and the remains of smashed windows. Mendenhall said several residents and other mayors have asked how they can help with the cleanup. The city hoped to have information later in the day, and would like people to remain home until they can assess what needs to be done. On May 25, video showed a Minneapolis police officer pressing his knee into the neck of George Floyd for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
The police officer was fired.
Four days after the incident, former officer Derek Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Protests and violence erupted in Minneapolis and across much of the country, including Salt Lake City.
