Last week, on Monday, May 25th, a defenseless black man was killed while in a police restraint.

George Floyd was arrested and forced to the ground...

Where former police officer, Derek Chauvin, proceeded to kneel on his neck, while 3 other officers knelt on his back.

Footage of George's "arrest" quickly circulated on social media...

And, in the highly distressing scenes, he could be heard begging with the officers to release him and repeatedly saying "Please, please... I can't breathe."

After nearly ten minutes, George was completely unresponsive.

An ambulance arrived and took the unconscious man to hospital but, devastatingly, he was pronounced dead upon arrival. He was only forty-six years old.

4 days after George's death, some justice was served.

Derek Chauvin, the man who had knelt on George’s neck, was finally arrested. But this wasn't enough...

Chauvin was originally taken into custody and was charged with murder in the third degree and manslaughter.

His bond was set at $50,000, and he is due to appear in court on June 8th.

This kind of police brutality has been happening for centuries now...

But George's death has sparked an outrage like never before.

Thousands upon thousands of people have been taking to the streets in protest...

And they are all marching for one thing: For the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.

But things have been quick to turn violent.

Protesters became interweaved with rioters and, as they continue to clash with police, the scenes unfolding across our country have been becoming steadily more violent.

It's a truly terrifying time.

But change needs to happen and, at the moment, this seems like the only way to make it happen.

But, remarkably, they seem to be working.

Thanks to these riots, the Black Lives Matter movement is dominating global headlines, and it has completely taken over social media.

And of course, the news broke on Wednesday that Chauvin is now facing an upgraded charge...

He is now being charged with second-degree murder according to Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

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 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.

And it's so important that we continue to speak out and use our voices.

But some people have been using social media to spread a harmful message.

And it seems Texan politician, Cynthia Brehm, is one of those people.

Cynthia Brehm - Republican Party Chair of Bexar County - posted a conspiracy theory on Facebook.

In her post, entitled "George Floyd — A Staged Event?," she reportedly claimed the killing was premeditated and set up to hurt Trump. "These officers were involved with something, I'm not sure exactly what, but something is just not adding up," she wrote.

She continued:

"Also this supposed officer is now missing from his home, nowhere to be found has the smell of MK Ultra activation," she added, referring to the CIA mind-control experiments carried out in the  '50s. "I think there is at the very least the 'possibility', that this was a filmed public execution of a black man by a white cop, with the purpose of creating racial tensions and driving a wedge in the growing group of anti deep state sentiment from common people, that have already been psychologically traumatized by [the virus] fears."

The post has since been deleted from Facebook...

But San Antonio Express-News columnist Gilbert Garcia managed to grab a screenshot before it was taken down.

And of course, the post quickly made its way around social media.

And many of her GOP peers were less than impressed, with some calling on her to resign. "These comments are disgusting and have no place in the Republican Party or in public discourse," Texas Governor Greg Abbott's spokesman John Wittman said in a statement Thursday morning."Cynthia Brehm should immediately resign her position as Chair of the Bexar County Republican Party."

This isn't the only time Brehm has made headlines for her conspiracy theories.

Just last month she declared the current pandemic a Democrat Party hoax. "This is America and we shouldn’t have to be forced or mandated to wear a mask," she told a rally, as per Express News. "Why is this happening today? I'll tell you why — all of this has been promulgated by the Democrats to undo all of the good that President Trump has done for our country, and they are worried."
