Nearly 300 New York City officers have been injured amid protests, police say
Violence toward police will not be tolerated, New York governor Cuomo said.
Nearly 300 New York City police officers have sustained injuries amid recent protests, according to Fox News.
As protests have erupted around the country in the wake of the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minnesota, some have engaged in peaceful demonstration but others have used the national uproar to perpetrate illegal activities.
In some areas lawless actors have engaged in looting and arson, leaving a trail of property destruction in their wake.
Fox reported that NYPD said that 292 of its officers have been injured.
"There is no tolerance for violence against a police officer, period," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday at a press conference. "They're trying to keep themselves safe because the police want to go home to their families."
