While Saturday's protests were mostly peaceful, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frew acted to provoke a group of protesters after telling them he did not support the city's police department's abolition.

Several videos on social media depict the confrontation when protesters marched to Frey's home and asked him to leave, according to CNN affiliate WCO-TV. The protesters asked Fr. directly whether they supported the disbursement of the Minneapolis Police Department.

When Fray did not answer, the crowd provoked him to walk away. He chanted "Go Home, Jacob, Go Home" and "Sharm Karo" as per the video posted on Twitter.

In a statement to CNN, a spokesman for Fray said that the mayor "is determined in his commitment to working with Chief (Medaria) Aradondo to overhaul structural reforms and systemic racism. He does not support the elimination of the police department We do."

Fray told WCCO that he supports "large-scale structural reform" to eliminate a racist system and remove "inherent inequalities".

Tens of thousands of people across the country are calling for police reforms and protesting the deaths of unarmed African Americans, sometimes by police, as a confrontation between Frey and protesters. Recent deaths include George Floyd in Minneapolis, Bryo Taylor in Louisville and Ahmed Arbe in Georgia.

The incident also comes immediately after Frye signs a temporary restrictive order in the state, which enforces immediate police reforms, such as banning the use of strangers and authorizing the use of all crowd control weapons. The major is required. WCCO reported.
