Violent Protests Emerge Overnight in Minneapolis Over Death of Unarmed Black Man George Floyd

By  | 

America has had enough. In wake of the passing of George Floyd, protests are triggered in Minneapolis. On May 25,2020 George Floyd was murdered by a white Minneapolis police officer named Derek Chauvin. The officer knelt on Floyd’s neck for several minutes and caused his death. The arrest was recorded and in the video recording you can hear Floyd repeatedly saying “I can’t breathe.”

Instead of protesting peacefully, the black community is heated and the murder of George Floyd sparked many violent protests and fires. Minneapolis is under fire and we don’t see things simmering down anytime soon. See for yourself.
