America was swept away by protests after the death of a 46-year-old black man named George Floyd, who died on the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday, following police actions. The incident occurred just in front of passers-by.
Employees claim to have gone to the arson. George, who was seated in the car at the time, appeared suspicious to the police. Floyd is said to have refused to comply with the employees’ request and to leave the car, and has expressed fierce resistance to them. After that, one of the officers handcuffed him, which caused a stressful reaction in the inmate. The officer then pressed George to the ground with his knee and held him there for more than seven minutes.
All the while, Floyd begged the officer to let him go and shouted that he was choking, but the employee was adamant. After a while, George lost consciousness and an ambulance was called, but the doctors could no longer help the man. Eyewitnesses claim that the police exceeded their authority and simply killed the unarmed. They say Floyd has shown no resistance.
The death of George Floyd caused great public outcry. People held rallies at the Minneapolis Police Department with a request to restore justice. Local authorities have already responded to the incident. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Fry expressed condolences to everyone close to Floyd and also acknowledged the actions of the police as illegal.
The methods we have seen are unacceptable. When you hear someone asking for help, you should help. The officers did not show the most basic human reaction. It’s horrible. Being black in the United States doesn’t necessarily mean the death penalty,
– the mayor has spoken.
The first measures followed: the four police officers involved in the arrest of Floyd were dismissed. In this case, the FBI investigated the case of George.
Many stars have already joined the protests demanding fair punishment from the police. On their social networks, they post photos of Floyd with his last sentence: “Please, I can’t breathe.” The other day, similar articles appeared at Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Justin Bieber, Eva Longoria, Viola Davis, Cardi Bi and many other stars.
Enough for me! What will help stop it? Civil war? New president? Riots in the streets? I am tired, I am so tired! The country has had enough. You don’t inspire people with fear, showing their cowardice, and the fact that America is not really a country of free people,
– expressed indignation Cardi B.
It must stop! I’m just tired of it all! I am angry that this man is dead! Racism is bad, and we need to talk about it openly! Make people happy! Forgive us George Floyd
– Justin Bieber joined the demonstration.
This is what it means to be black in America! He was killed because of his race! In the modern world, we are forced to face this lynching. That’s the problem … America will never get really big unless we figure out how to make everyone feel good. RIP George Floyd,
– said Viola Davis.
