Police officer charged with the murder of George Floyd

As most of you have heard of the death of another unarmed black man who was killed by a police officer by the name of George Floyd on Monday, May 25, 2020.

George was accused of forgery which led 4 cops to try to remove him from his actions. A police officer by the name of Derek Chauvin felt Floyd was trying to resist the officer’s directions and took matters into his own hands and felt the need to kneel on Floyds throat area causing him to not be able to breathe as his fellow officers stood and watched as if officer Derek was not wrong. Moments later Floyd had died due to suffocation from officer Derek kneeling on his throat. Officer Derek is now in custody and is being charged with the murder of George Floyd.
