George Floyd murder: Minnesota killer cops fired

All four officers involved in the Minneapolis killing of an African-American man, have been fired according to the Minnesota authorities. The FBI have also opened deep investigations into the killing reports say. George Floyd died Monday night after a lengthy tackle on the ground by a police officer. Anger and indignation marred the streets of Minneapolis, in the aftermath of the killing. Leslie Redmond, Minneapolis NAACP president, stressed that the issue went beyond race: “This isn’t a black American problem, it’s a human problem. “If you are a human being, you must be outraged by what happened yesterday. You must demand that it never happen again. If you are a police officer, you should never let something like that happen,” the civil rights activist added. A viral footage showed the 46-year-old deceased, whose neck is pinned to the ground by an officer’s knee, repeatedly complained of not being able to breathe. He dies a few minutes later. The police, who had been called in on a counterfeiting case, say he resisted arrest. The situation in Minneapolis remains “incredibly dangerous” as protests continue in the city, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said in a press conference— CNN International (@cnni) May 30, 2020
