The cable network’s Atlanta headquarters, came under furious attack Friday night during protests over police brutality sparked by the death of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis.
A largely peaceful demonstration erupted first in vandalism, then in violence. Cops used pepper spray, and then some in the crowd were seen smashing windows and defacing the giant CNN sign with spray-paint. Down the street, a police car was set ablaze.

CNN correspondent Nick Valencia began reporting on the frightening scene from a stairway inside the building, behind a phalanx of SWAT officers in the lobby, with an angry mob standing on the other side of the broken and missing plate glass.
“I have a daughter and wife I want to get home to tonight,” Valencia told anchor Chris Cuomo.
In a Friday evening press conference, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was visibly angry as she told protestors to “go home” after thousands marched from the Georgia capitol to the Centennial Olympic Park before gathering outside CNN.
“What I see happening on the streets of Atlanta is not Atlanta. This is not a protest, This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr.
This is chaos. A protest has a purpose,” Bottoms said, stating that the protests are “disgracing the life of George Floyd.”
