George Floyd death: Minnesota Governor calls for return to calm following violent protests | FULL

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz is acknowledging the "abject failure" of the response to this week's protests over the death of George Floyd.

During news conference on Friday, Walz said the state would take over the response. He says it's time to show respect and dignity to those who are suffering called for order to be restored.

He also called for swift justice for officers involved in the Floyd's death.

The handcuffed black man pleaded for air as a white officer knelt on his neck.

Walz's comments came after protesters torched a police station that officers abandoned during a third night of violence.

Livestream video showed protesters entering the building, where intentionally set fires activated smoke alarms and sprinklers.
