Mayors and governors across the United States declared states of emergency, deployed National Guard troops, and set curfews Saturday, but people still took to the streets in fury over the deaths of African Americans in police custody. By Saturday night, police had arrested at least 1,400 protesters in various cities, some of them for attempted murder of police officers. Rioters and bystanders sustained injuries in the chaos.
