Summer BLM protests were ‘overwhelmingly’ peaceful: analysis | The Sacramento Bee

A report analyzing the flash point of Black Lives Matter protests across the U.S. this summer found more than 90 percent of the demonstrations against racial injustice were nonviolent.

An analysis by the nonprofit Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project identified more than 7,750 demonstrations across 2,400 cities between May 26 — the day after the death of George Floyd — and Aug. 22.

Fewer than 220 of those events were marked by violence or destructive activity and were “largely confined to specific blocks,” according to the report.
