Protests erupted across Orlando over the weekend.

While most of it remained peaceful, some groups reacted with violence, assaulting officers and damaging businesses.

Demonstraters are encouraged by city officials to have their voices heard, but to do so peacefully.

When violence occurs, officers have used pepper spray and gas to disperse crowds.

Demonstrations are growing across the country as people demand justice in the name of George Floyd, who died last Monday after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck, holding him down for several minutes.

That officer, Derek Chauvin, and three other officers involved in Floyd's death have been fired from the department. 

Chauvin is in police custody, as he is charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

The other officers have yet to be charged.
