What happened to George Floyd?

George Floyd was 46 year old black man who was murdered in cold blood by Minneapolis police officers on May 25. This was after a deli employee called 911 accusing Floyd of purchasing ciggarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. One of the four cops present at the scene sat with his knee in George Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds until he was dead. All four cops ignored George Floyds cries for help as he yelled "I can't breathe". All four officers have been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department. Derek Chauvin, the white cop who's knee killed George Floyd has been charged with 2nd degree murder and the other three officers have also been charged. See below for more resources. Say his name.
