A graphic video of#GeorgeFloyd has been circulating the internet and we choose not to share it because of its triggering content however, here is the truth: George Floyd was unlawfully pinned to the ground by his neck by a white American police officer. Floyd can be heard multiple times communicating to the officer that he cannot breathe. The officer continues to pin him down with his knee. Floyd then begs for water. He then communicates that his stomach hurts, and neck hurts and begs the officer to move. This would then be the cause of his death. This has been stated by members of the community of a similar incident that happened with#EricGarner. The officers names were Officer Derek Chauvin and Tou Thao
