As for the other officers?Let’s not forget that, while Chauvin is the man primarily responsible for George’s death, 3 other police officers – Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng, and Tou Thao – also played a significant role in the incident.
Chauvin may have been the one to kneel on his neck...But alternative footage from the incident shows that 2 other officers were actually kneeling on his back, while a 4th stood on and watched. As reported by the New York Times, it was announced yesterday that Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng, and Tou Thao have all been formally charged with aiding and abetting murder in the death of George Floyd.
This is only the beginning.
THEYRE CHARGING THE OTHER 3 OFFICERS AND RAISED THE DEGREE. KEEP SIGNING PETITIONS, KEEP DONATING, KEEP CALLING. THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING— gabryelle (@gabryelle)1591208344.0
One city really decided to use its voice.
via: Getty ImagesIn a way that is very visible.
And last week,, a group of people were seen painting large yellow letters down two blocks of 16th Street in D.C.
via: Getty ImagesA two-lane road that coincidentally leads to the White House.
The letters along the road spelled out "Black Lives Matter".
via: Getty ImagesAnd those who were painting the letters were reportedly commissioned by D.C Mayor Muriel Bowser.
Emily Badger, a New York Times writer who spotted the letters, said in a tweet that the letters would "be a real middle finger to any federal forces flying overhead."
This is the same paint the city uses to stripe road lanes. That’s not... temporary sidewalk chalk.— Emily Badger (@Emily Badger)1591363768.0
SNL's Alum Jay spoke out.And he revealed that something truly horrific happened to him just a week before Ahmaud Arbery was killed.
Jay was jogging in Los Angeles.When he saw a swarm of cops approaching. He looked at the police and thought to himself that whoever they are looking for is in big trouble.
Then he realized they were looking for him.The police had an incredibly vague description of the man they wanted to arrest. He was black and wearing gray clothing.
They forced him to the ground.With their guns out, Jay was forced to the ground and handcuffed - while he frantically explained that he was not the man they were looking for. But the worst part? One of the officers even knelt on his neck...
Protests are taking place across the globe.
