Passers-by in Minneapolis witnessed and filmed 2 police officers “arresting” George Floyd for an assumed forgery incident.

Even though he didn’t resist arrest, one of the officers got him on the ground and pinned him there by pressing their knee into his neck.

“Please, please, I can’t breathe,” George can be heard begging in harrowing footage as the officers remain standing. “My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts,” he moans as passers-by begin to gather and repeatedly tell the officer to stop leaning on him.

“He’s not f****** moving!” one witness shouts as another says, “Get the f*** off him, he isn’t moving!” One of the officers responds with, “This is why you don’t do drugs, kids.”

An ambulance arrives, the paramedics check his pulse and move his body onto a stretcher – he was later pronounced dead in the hospital.  

And he did not deserve to die.

And a huge amount of backlash has hit the headlines.

And in total, 4 police officers have been fired following George’s death. But many feel that more should be done.

And it has left millions of people both heartbroken and disgusted.

But many are feeling completely hopeless due to the fact that this blatant racism is happening more and more in our country.

And when will police officers who have caused his death be properly convicted for their crimes?

But Minneapolis has been restless for the entire week now.

Thousands upon thousands of protesters took to the streets on Wednesday to express their hurt and their anger at the injustice.

As thousands of people took to the streets, the police force became involved when shops started getting looted and police cars were being attacked.

And when protestors began fighting back, things turned very ugly and the mass brawl continued into the night.

A Minneapolis Police Station was set on fire last night to mark the third evening of rioting. Thankfully, the station had been evacuated beforehand so nobody was seriously hurt.

And even though the protest was to demand justice for George, so many people were left fearful for their own lives in the chaotic streets of Minneapolis.

Police were nowhere to be seen, and the police department evacuated the building before the fire was set. The fire department hasn’t responded either.


“Being black in America should not be a death sentence. For 5 minutes we watched as a white officer pressed his knee to the neck of a black man. For 5 minutes,” he said.

“When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic human sense. What happened on Chicago and 38th, this last night, is simply awful.”

And this time, he called for the outright arrest of Derek Chauvin – the officer who is responsible for the murder of George Floyd.

“Why is the man who killed George Floyd not in jail?” Frey asked during the press conference. “If you had done it or I had done it, we would be behind bars right now, and I cannot come up with a good answer to that question.”

Justice needs to be served.

Derek Chauvin needs to face up to his actions regardless of his position in the police force. He committed murder and there’s no way that anybody can dodge that fact.

But it seems that justice is finally about to be served.

Derek Chauvin was arrested earlier this evening …

It is currently unclear as to what the next stages will be, but make sure to stay posted for updates on this developing story. For more issues regarding police brutality, keep scrolling.
