What

George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was murdered by Minneapolis police while being taken into custody on Monday, May 25th, 2020. An officer, Derek Chauvin, put his knee on Floyd's neck while he was pinned on the ground for 8 minutes, preventing him from breathing. Three more officers stood by and held George down. "Please, please. I can't breathe," said Floyd, echoing the last words of Eric Garner, another innocent black man killed by police brutality. Black Lives Matter, period.
