The FBI is reportedly investigating the death George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis after local police violently arrested him Monday evening.
Video of the arrest has made its rounds on social media and the nightly news, which shows a white police officer kneeling on the man’s neck as he lay face down on the street. The fatal arrest was filmed and posted online within hours of the encounter.
It’s hard to believe the officers didn’t know that kneeling on that man’s neck could cause him to die. It’s very disturbing that the officer continued to kneel on the man’s neck for 8 minutes after he became unresponsive, and that none of the other officers did anything to stop him. These people need to go to jail. Whatever this man did before he was handcuffed did not justify him being murdered like that.
The following video is another angle of the arrest before Floyd was placed on the ground. Officers claimed he was resisting arrest.
Reports are that all body camera footage of Floyd’s arrest has been turned over to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), which investigates most police shootings and in-custody deaths. All the arresting officers have been fired.
