4 Minneapolis Officers Fired After Death of Unarmed Black Man

Published: Tuesday 26th May 2020 by Rashad

Just hours after a video depicting a police officer forcibly placing his knee on the neck of an unarmed handcuffed Black man (who later died due to complications from the incident) went viral, four Minneapolis police officers – including the perpetrator – have been fired.

Report:

“Four Minneapolis police officers who were involved in the arrest of a black man who died in police custody were fired Tuesday after a bystander’s video showed the man pleading that he could not breathe as a white officer knelt on his neck.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey tweeted about the firings, saying “This is the right call.”

The man’s death Monday night after he struggled with officers was under investigation by the FBI and state law enforcement authorities. It drew comparisons to the case of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died in 2014 in New York after he was placed in a chokehold by police and pleaded for his life, saying he could not breathe.”

The man who died has been identified as George Floyd by Ben Crump, a prominent civil rights and personal injury attorney who’s hired by Floyd’s family.

“We all watched the horrific death of George Floyd on video as witnesses begged the police officer to take him into the police car and get off his neck,” Crump said in a statement. “This abusive, excessive and inhumane use of force cost the life of a man who was being detained by the police for questioning about a non-violent charge.”

      She had been, but she should face charges for using public resources for revenge. And lying to operators holding them from doing their job. While real crimes were being committed.

      The need to spend the rest of their lives in jail. I totally don’t understand why people could be so wicked. Shocking

    Lock them up too! Why hasn’t Doja spoken out against this since she’s trying to prove with her actions that she isn’t racist. Everyone wants to be black until it’s time to be black

    We are being hunted and killed and there is nothing anyone can do. No arrests and even if there was there would be no convictions. Police killing us, corona killing us, black on black crime. We ar becoming extinct. Modern day genocide.

      Don’t forget about Ebola.

    Yawn…. when are black people going to start caring about the black lives that are taken by other black people on a daily basis. Violence within the black community outweighs any isolated injustices committed by the police, but everyone is silent until you have an opportunity to say fu*k the police.
