THIS WAS AWFUL: Video Shows MN Police Officer Kneeling on Black Man’s Neck Who Later Died — 4 Officers Later Fired

This was really awful — and sad.
And it clearly shows police brutality.

A Minneapolis police officer was filmed kneeling on a black man’s neck on Monday.
The victim said he couldn’t breathe but the police officer kept his knee on his neck.

The black man then died during the arrest. The officer killed him.

Four police officers were fired after the incident.

CNN reported:

Four Minneapolis police officers have been fired for their involvement in the death of a black man who was held down with a knee as he protested that he couldn’t breathe, officials said Tuesday.

The FBI is investigating the incident, which drew widespread condemnation of the officers after a video showing part of the encounter circulated on social media.

Mayor Jacob Frey said the technique used to pin George Floyd’s head to the ground was against department regulations.

After several minutes of pleading with an officer pressing a knee to the back of his neck, the man appeared motionless, his eyes shut, his head against the pavement.

Officers responding to an alleged forgery in progress Monday evening were initially told that a person later described as the suspect was sitting on a car and appeared to be under the influence, police said.

Here’s another video of this incident.
