A Minneapolis, Minnesota police officer was recorded on video kneeling on a black man’s neck for over five minutes even though the man, George Floyd, was crying out that he couldn’t breathe.
Floyd quickly fell unconscious and died shortly after.
A second police officer who stood near the incident did nothing to intervene to help George Floyd’s breathing even as a crowd of outraged and concerned civilians yelled at the officers to let Floyd breath.

Newly surfaced surveillance footage reveals that the police officers were lying when they initially claimed that Floyd was resisting arrest prior to his death.
David Harris Jr, a prominent black Trump supporter and conservative writer, posted an emotional video on Facebook in response to the news of Floyd’s brutal death in which he condemned the police officers’ actions and called for them to be charged for murder.
Harris stated that this horrific incident will further erode black American’s trust in police officers across the nation.
Harris warned viewers of the incoming avalanche from mainstream media reporters that will exploit Floyd’s murder to divide Americans.
President Trump responded to the incident by tweeting out that he’s ordered the FBI and DOJ to investigate the tragic situation.
Trump tweeted, “At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation as to the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd. I have asked for this investigation to be expedited and greatly appreciate all of the work done by local law enforcement. My heart goes out to George’s family and friends. Justice will be served!”
Conservative activist Joel Patrick voiced his support for more protests if the district attorney does not charge the officers for murder.
The Mayor of Minneapolis confirmed that the four officers involved with the brutal incident have been terminated from the department.
The Hodgetwins, conservative comedians and bodybuilders, posted a video criticizing the police officers for their unnecessary use of excessive force on an unarmed and handcuffed man.
