Google is moving in to change search results as another round of riots breaks out across the country.
If you were to search “riots” on Google yesterday, articles related to the Capitol riots would appear as opposed to the riots going on after the shooting of Daunte Wright. The riots and looting that broke out after the officer-involved shooting required the deployment of the National Gaurd.

The Mayor of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota went out to one of these riots wearing a kevlar helmet but insisted on Twitter that the event was a protest.
Earlier this evening I had the opportunity to go talk to these peaceful protesters. I assured them we are working collaboratively with all involved agencies & will get to the bottom of this. Our city is calm now, thank you all who came out to peacefully protest then went home pic.twitter.com/N8RCbf52C7

While there are certainly protests going on around the country there are also riots, the media neglects to mention these, and big tech is actively suppressing search results about this topic.
