46-year-old unarmed black man, George Floyd, was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin by keeping his knee on his neck while he couldn't breathe. This is also after bystanders kept yelling that Floyd was in no way resisting arrest and they saw that his health was in danger. Three other cops were with him on the scene as well.
Protests have since started in Minneapolis with many businesses being burned. Large protests also surfaced in Los Angeles in an attempt to make it known that Floyd deserves justice and all four cops need to be charged.
