11 months ago

In the United States, in Minneapolis, a farewell ceremony was held for a murdered policeman after being detained by George Floyd. According to the American press, it was interrupted for 8 minutes and 46 seconds – approximately the same time the law enforcement officer kept an African American and pressed his knee on his neck until he lost consciousness.

Hundreds of people gathered at the ceremony, including some artists, black rights advocates, and politicians. There was criticism of President Donald Trump, who, according to some, did not fulfill election promises to make the US a safe country. The head of the White House was also accused of trying to use the murder situation for his political ends.

The body of George Floyd will be delivered to his native Houston, where a farewell ceremony is scheduled for June 8 and 9, after which he will be buried in a local cemetery.

Recall that after the death of George Floyd in the United States began mass protests. The detention frames published on the Web show how three officers pressed him to the asphalt, and one pressed his foot on his neck. Floyd shouted for some time that he could not breathe, and then lost consciousness. The death of a resident of Minnesota was recognized as murder.
