One may ask who is this George Floyd?
George Floyd is an African-American man who died in Powderhorn, a neighbourhood south of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota On May 25, 2020.
Mr Floyd was in handcuff and lying face down on a city street during his arrest for allegedly issuing a dud check of $20 at a deli.
Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer, pinned him down with his knee on the neck of Floyd. He kept his knee there for more than 8 minutes.
Other officers at the scene included Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas K. Lane who were participating in Floyd’s arrest.
A video of the incident captured by an onlooker and posted online sparked protests in major cities across the United States and even beyond its borders to Europe.
