A video of a police man who had his knee on the neck of a black man named George Floyd was circulating on social media and Americans didn’t take this lightly. In the video, George Floyd was begging to be able to breathe. He was captured saying, “Please I can’t breathe.”
Americans seek for justice for George Floyd after he was murdered by a police man in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said there should be charges in George Floyd death. He said, “Why is the man who killed George Floyd not in jail? If you had done it or I had done it, we would behind bars right now and I cannot come up with a good answer to that question.” The officer who had his knee on the neck of George Floyd should be charged, and I’m calling on Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to act on the evidence before him to charge the arresting officer in this case. We cannot turn a blind eye. It is on us as leaders to see this for what it is and call it what it is. George Floyd, his family deserves justice, the black community deserves justice and our city deserves justice.”
Fellow American citizens including popular rapper 50Cent and others are furious and have flooded twitter with some many hashtags like #BlackLivesMatter, #JusticeForGeorgeFlyod and #RIPGeorgeFlyod. Several twitter users in America label the police man who murdered George Flyod as a racist. A picture of him in a make “whites great again “cap is trending as Americans call for his arrest.
