I don’t have the words. I’m sick and tired of this, tired of being sad about our people dying needlessly. Harassed and humiliated, in these challenging times, I thought we could come to together, but it seems like this Coronavirus has bought out more racism in a major way… where does it end? I’m black and I’m proud #JUSTICEFORFLOYD 💔😢😡. MAY HE REST IN POWER 🙏🏾
The four police officers involved in his murder have been fired. They now need to be arrested and prosecuted.
The FBI is now probing the matter which sparked outrage across the US after a
video showing the incident went viral on social media.
Mayor Jacob Frey condemned the incident and said that the technique used by the
officers to pin George Floyd’s head to the ground was against the department regulations.
