So today , I was scrolling through my WhatsApp feed and then one thing caught my eye ...
It said : #Georgeflyod # Homicide # asphyxia # Minneapolis cop
At first, It made no sense ! Then a video was posted : I saw it a couple of times and every time, It gives a notification: WARNING : DISTRESSING IMAGES! OH BOY ! IT WAS DISTRESSING! I researched through Google and was shocked!!!!
So then , I thought that it deserved to be penned down and I simply couldn't resist!
Racism , discrimination, prejudice ; A talk about the past , but little did we know that somewhere out in the world,
It's still rambling on the streets !
So ; George Floyd: African-American , a professional football player was pinned on his neck down by a police officer's knees ! It seems that, he was reported for a forgery and resisted arrest !
So what should the cops do ??
Give him a punishment! : Is what I'd say ! BUT NOT DELIBERATELY KILL HIM !
The officer put down both his knees on his neck and never let it go ! Just imagine that pain ! Blood flowed like a stream aimlessly in the streets !💔💔
The man pleaded:
" Oh man , he is gonna kill me !"
"JUST GET UP !"
" I CAN'T BREATH! "
Despite his pleas he never let go! And soon enough, he passed away.. in 8 minutes 46 seconds !
The doctor confirmed that it was a homicide : The mere act of one killing an other !
and his heart had stopped ! Due to Asphyxia : Neck and back compression which results in lack of blood flow to the brain !
I was 💔💔 moved by seeing this! Emotionally felt sympathetic ...💔💔
It happened on May 25th, and four Minneapolis officers were FIRED after the involvement in that man's death!
People still remember him and do various tributes on his sad demise: like graffiti's and paintings on walls ..
