Protests have turned to raging riots in Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers. Raging against cops has turned to several businesses being destroyed, with one of them being Scores Sports Bar, owned by a local firefighter who spent his life savings to build his dream business.
The business is owned by Korboi Balla, and he was reduced to tears as he watched his dream getting destroyed before his very eyes. Looters even came to try and steal his safe while cameras were rolling.
“I don’t know what we’re going to do. We’ve worked so hard to get here. So hard.”
A GoFundMe has been created and at the time of this publication, raised over $80,000. From the page:
