This type of disgraceful violence has been happening within our police forces for decades now...

On Monday, May 25th, Passers-by in Minneapolis witnessed and filmed 2 police officers "arresting" George Floyd for an assumed forgery incident.

Police found George matching a suspect's description in his car.

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.

This position was clearly very painful for him...

"Please, please, I can't breathe," George can heard begging in harrowing footage as the officers remain standing. "My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts," he moaned as passers-by began to gather and repeatedly plead with the officer to stop leaning on him.

Multiple witnesses were arguing with the officers when he started to lose consciousness...

"He's not f****** moving!" one witness shouted as another says, "Get the f*** off him, he isn't moving!" One of the officers responded with, "This is why you don't do drugs, kids."

After around 4 minutes of the officer kneeling on him, George was completely unresponsive.

An ambulance arrived, the paramedics checked his pulse and moved his body onto a stretcher - but, devastatingly, he was later pronounced dead in the hospital.

George was only forty-six-years-old...

And he did not deserve to die.

The police officers involved have shown absolutely no emotion, regret, or urgency...

And a huge amount of backlash has hit the headlines.

Officers have been punished, to some extent.

And in total, 4 police officers have been fired following George's death.

The Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, has been repeatedly addressing the incident, referring to events in the videos as "wrong at every level."

"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... is simply awful."

On Friday, we got the news that we'd all been waiting for.

Derek Chauvin, the officer who had knelt on George's neck, has finally been arrested.

He was charged with murder in the third degree and manslaughter...

And could face up to twenty-five-years behind bars if found guilty of his charges.

But, despite his arrest, the wound from George's shocking death is still very raw.

The footage of his death is still circulating all over social media, and millions of people remain both heartbroken and disgusted.

People all around the world have been left furious over George's unjustified death.

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

Protests have been held in George's memory all around the country...

And Minneapolis has been restless for over an entire week now and rightfully so.

It didn't take long for protests to unfold...

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

But things very quickly turned violent.

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

Police officers in riot gear pelted the crowds with tear gas and rubber bullets...

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

The injuries inflicted on protestors have been nothing short of barbaric.

From journalists to photographers, to innocent civilians, the authority has been ruthless in their methods, as instructed by the President of the United States, a man who thrives off of division and chaos.

Scenes like this one have been common...

Police have been using these tactics to make sure journalists and other members of the media are not being able to report on what is taking place.

These people are just doing their jobs.

But are met with brute force by the police. This video was posted by Ed Ou, a journalist at NBC News who was targeted along with his team and shot at with tear gas and rubber bullets the side of apples for merely reporting on the issues.

Even though all of these journalists have "press badges" and have been sent out to the front lines, the police have no mercy.

They continued to make sure they were targeted in the eye or their throats so that they will not be able to return to the streets to continue their jobs.

And these are only a few of the outcomes...

There have been videos of children as young as ten years old being tear-gassed and pepper-sprayed in their faces.

We will never get over these sights.

Over 4,000 people arrested and injured all because you did not want to arrest 4 of your own. Wow. We pray for peace and justice for the black communities in America and the rest of the world too. Black lives will always matter.
