PHILADELPHIA (INTELLIHUB) —  Black Lives Matter supporters took to the streets in rage Saturday in response to the police killing of George Floyd on Monday.

The downtown district of the city looked more like a scene out of the hit Hollywood film Black Hawk Down then anything else.

Protesters flipped over police cars and set them on fire as others vandalized virtually everything in sight.

A Wells Fargo bank was set ablaze.

A few choice shots show the aftermath from the Saturday morning onslaught.
