Minneapolis Cop Sat On This Handcuffed Man’s Neck Until He Became Unresponsive

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.”
