The Death of George Floyd
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd died after a white Minnesota cop, Derek Cauvin, placed his knee to Floyd’s neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds. Floyd, who was shackled and lying face down in the street, cried out repeatedly, “I Can’t Breathe,” but the cop disregarded him and proceeded until he was immobile and had no pulse. Medical assistance was eventually dispatched, but it was too late. Floyd was 46 years old when he passed away.
Some passers-by had a glimpse of Floyd’s death while walking down the street. Minneapolis police were heavily chastised after the video went viral. The station fired Derek Chauvin and the other three policemen who were present at the incident, J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao, on the spot.
Chauvin was also charged with unintended second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. He was convicted guilty of all charges on April 20, 2021, and is currently awaiting his punishment, which will be revealed on June 25. Meanwhile, he has asked for a new trial. The other three officers’ trials are slated for August 23, 2021.
