The union representing the US Postal Service city carriers issued a statement on June 8, reporting that its vehicles were ransacked and its mail carriers robbed during the civil unrest following George Floyd’s death. A USPS spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider that two post offices were destroyed by fire in Minneapolis. The recent protests against police brutality have “resulted in minimal operational impact across the country,” the USPS spokesperson said.
