Ayyyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I Reported a story about how a video that circulated online cause for an FBI investigation into a murder of an unarmed black man by the hands of the police. Well here is some more news pertaining to this story.
Four Minneapolis police officers were fired Tuesday, authorities said, as state and federal authorities investigated the arrest of a black man who died after being pinned to the ground.
Video of the incident shared on social media captured the man, identified as George Floyd by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D), repeatedly telling the officers, “I cannot breathe!” An increasingly distraught crowd of onlookers pleaded with the officer to move his knee.
By Tuesday afternoon, as outrage continued to build, Frey announced the termination of the officers.
“This is the right call,” he wrote in posts on his Twitter and Facebook pages.
The Identity of the Slain man named is George Floyd. He was from Houston Texas but was in Minneapolis Minnesota for work.
Editors Note: Now that the identity of the Man who was Murdered senselessly by the officers in Minneapolis, My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to the family and friends of George Floyd.
Racism in America exist. With this comes genocide and other forms of violence against Black people. As a journalist and a writer, I am sick of having to report on news that my fellow man aren’t safe around and with the people who are SWORN to serve and protect us.
So understand that until THIS is understood, there will be no Peace until there is Justice.
