The outrage and protests first began when George Floyd died last month after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, held him down with a knee on his neck, though he repeatedly pleaded, “I can’t breathe”, and “please, I can’t breathe”. The video went viral on social media, causing many to join hands worldwide and show support in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Since the protests, Derek Chauvin has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. While his three other colleagues- Thomas Lane, J Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao — have also been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
