George Floyd, an African-American man, died of suffocation after being violently enforced by the police in May last year, triggering large-scale anti-racial discrimination and violent law enforcement demonstrations in many parts of the United States.
CBS reported on the 3rd that in fact, before the George Floyd incident, the police involved had also participated in the arrest of innocent African-American men and were accused of using knees to “lock their throats” to enforce the law violently a few years ago.
The events in the picture occurred a few weeks before Floyd was “locked throat”. The picture shows Derek Shawan, a white policeman who violently enforces the law against Floyd, stood by and watched, and the other two policemen controlled a man to the ground.
The man was not armed at that time and had nothing to do with the alarm incident. At present, the prosecution department is investigating the incident exposed by the video.
Meanwhile, another African-American woman, Glenn, complained that as early as 2017, white police officer Derek Shawan had violently enforced her by using a “throat locking”.
Floyd, an African-American man, was hit on the ground by several law enforcement officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25 last year. Derek Shawvan, a white police officer, pressed his neck tightly with his knees.
Floyd shouted “I can’t breathe” many times, but the police were indifferent. Eventually, Floyd died after being sent to hospital.
