On a viral video which i believe a lot of us might have seen, Floyd was pinned to the ground by a police officer. The officer held him down with his knee on his neck for several minutes. It took Floyd not to respond for the police officer to let him go even though he expressed he couldn’t breathe. He begged for his life, yet these police officers showed no mercy. How wicked is the heart of Man? Floyd groaned in pain throughout that nine-minutes video.
According to Minneapolis police, the officers involved were responding to an alleged forgery on Monday evening. They claimed that someone had described that the suspect was sitting in a car. Then they found Floyd, who was inside a vehicle and police claims he “physically resisted” after he got out. Keep in mind that recent videos released prove otherwise. He didn’t appear to resist arrest just like they claim. This goes a long way to say how much black people are treated in society today. Floyd was murdered in daylight by four policemen on duty.
There’s been so much injustice against the Black race for a long time now, and it doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Floyd is a victim, just like Ahmed Arbery, Steven Demarco Taylor, Ariane McCree, Terrance Franklin. Families are consistently losing loved ones to pure hatred and wickedness. It’s disheartening!
We need justice served appropriately. Being black shouldn’t be a crime, and it isn’t. Being Black isn’t a death sentence either. The consistent killing of Black people needs to end, and we all have a role to play regardless of your race. We are all humans, hence let’s treat ourselves as brothers and sisters.
We need Justice to be served for George Floyd.
