Most cities in the United States of America are now on fire due to cruel torturing of a black American to death by a white police man in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The murder of George Floyd is like an assassination of a military Head of States where all military commands and cantonments strike for a counter coup against dissidents. The white American Police Officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd. And the brutal killing made the entire country has no more peace.
Most cities in American, such as Washington, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Carnifornia among others were reported full of protesters against the killing. Curfew was imposed on affected cities or area by some Governors. For instance in Atlanta, as at the time of this report, curfew is on between 6.00pm to 6.00am.
Washington Post reported that In the White House, Washington, President Trump was taken by Secret Service agents to an underground bunker at the White House on Friday night, according to two officials familiar with the incident, as protests over the death of George Floyd erupted near the presidential residence.
The US is still mourning the Covid-19 deaths of over 100,000 people while several thousands are still on intensive care units across the country. The brutal killing of a black man in the hand of a racist police officer turned most cities in USA to battle fields between the Police and Military in one side and the protesters in the other.
TopSearch Magazine reliably gathered that the deceased, George as popularly called by friends in the area on 25 May, went to buy a packet of cigarettes from a grocery store named “Cup Foods” in the area. The $20 currency note he gave to the store attendant was suspected to be counterfeit by the store employee who called 911 to arrest the deceased around 8:01PM.
Two Police Officers arrived around 8:08PM. As at that time, George was sitting with two other boys in a car behind the store. One of the officers, Thomas Lane, pulled out his gun and ordered George to show his hands. Officer Thomas Lane pulled George out of the car and attempted to handcuff him. Though, George actively resisted at that point according to report. Officer Lane explained to him that he was being arrested for possessing and spending a counterfeit currency. George then became compliant to hand restraints.
According to the report, at about 8:14PM the officers wanted to put George in their squad car but the deceased resisted ‘stiffened up, fell to the ground, and told the officers he was claustrophobic”.
The report said at that point, Officer Chauvin and others arrived at the scene. All the officers were then involved in an attempt to put George in the police car. At 8:19Pm Officer Chauvin pulled George out of the passenger side, causing him to fall to the ground face down, and still in handcuffs.
A source reveals that was when witnesses started filming the scene and how the deceased appeared to be in a distressed state. George already hand restrained, while officer Chauvin placed his left knee between his head and neck on the floor.
“I can’t breathe”, George said repeatedly, pleading for his mother and begging “please, please please”. Eye witness confirms the screaming
It is reliably gathered in the report that for eight minutes and forty six seconds, officer Chauvin kept his knee on George’s neck. The deceased became non-responsive after few minutes.
At 8. 27PM Officer Chauvin removed his kneel from George’s neck. Motionless, George was rolled on to a gurney and taken to the Hennepin Country Medical Center in an ambulance. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
According to report from a close friend, Christopher Harris, ‘forgery was out of George’s character’. Harris said “He begged for his life. He pleaded for his life. When you try so hard to put faith in this, a system that you know isn’t designed for you, when you constantly seek justice by lawful means and you can’t get it, you begin to take the law into your own hands”. Harris lamented.
George was a native of Houston, Texas. The magazine gathered that the deceased had been living in Minneapolis for years and very popular. He was working as a bouncer in the city but became jobless by the coronavirus pandemic early this year. The source confirmed.
