South Florida joins protests against police violence

The largest of the protests Saturday may have been in Miami, where hundreds of people gathered at the Torch of Friendship monument on Biscayne Boulevard at 3 p.m. before marching down Third Street, away from Bayfront Park. By 5 p.m., the protesters had completed a looping route and returned to the monument, weaving through traffic on Biscayne Boulevard while chanting “Black Lives Matter” and “George Floyd,” the name of the black man killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis, whose death has touched off protests around the country.
