In what led to the dismissal of four cops and series of protests, a black man, George Floyd died after an assault on him by the Minneapolis Police.

On Monday evening, May 25, the police reportedly arrived at the scene where two officers allegedly ordered George to get out of a vehicle. He was dragged to the ground and one of the officers was filmed kneeling on his neck as he repeatedly told the officer that he couldn’t breathe.

Concerned individuals tried to intervene, beckoning on the officers to stop the assault as George was seen to be in distress but to no avail.

The police claimed he physically resisted arrest. They also said they noted that he appeared to be in medical distress and called an ambulance after handcuffing him.
