His name is George Floyd.

🤬🤬🤬My God. ⁣I'm furious. This is murder. PERIOD

The Minneapolis Police murdered this brother. ⁣

This man, who, like Eric Garner, yelled out over and over and over again that HE COULD NOT BREATHE, was CLEARLY in distress. ⁣

He is in handcuffs. ⁣
On his belly. ⁣

That already makes it hard for people to breathe. ⁣

Then, for minutes and minutes on end, the officer keeps his KNEE on this man's neck - literally choking the life out of him. ⁣

The people BEGGED for them to let up. BEGGED. ⁣

Not that it would matter, but this man wasn't wanted for a violent crime.⁣

A grocery store thought he was signing a bad check. ⁣

Yeah, really. A bad fucking check. ⁣

Show me the white man that has ever been confronted and killed over this. ⁣

People are hurting. People are out of work. ⁣

I am so utterly disgusted and heartbroken that we live in a nation, in a time, where this keeps happening over and over again. ⁣

But here's the truth - JUSTICE would be this man this being alive right now. We are tired. We are angry. They are already LYING and saying they noticed he "went into distress." No, YOU PUT HIM IN DISTRESS and KEPT HIM IN DISTRESS. ⁣

And this shit has to end. Call the Mayor, Jacob Frey @ (612) 673-2100 and let him know he needs to speedily fire these officers and call the DA @ 612-348-5550. That's Mike Freeman. Let him know he needs to file charges immediately.
