A group using railroad spikes to send a message during protests in Detroit over the death of George Floyd has the mayor holding its stance on a curfew.
People hid the spikes and fireworks in boxes marked as food for the Floyd protest on May 31. The next day Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan extended an executive order for a curfew that had one slight change from the one issued earlier. People could still be out after 8 p.m. if they were going to or from a business for essential goods or services.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the railroad spikes could cause significant injuries, and some of the spikes were thrown at police officers on May 31. Craig said 110 people were arrested that night.
