Protests Against The Police Over The Murder Of African-American, George Floyd, Who Died After The US Cop Kneeled On His Neck (Video)

Protesters of the murder of George Floyd, have clashed with police in the US following the death of an unarmed black man, who pleaded he could not breathe as a white officer kneeled on his neck during an arrest.

Footage of the restraint went viral online after a bystander filmed the policeman pinning the shirtless suspect, George Floyd, to the ground in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Four officers involved in the arrest have since been fired, with the city’s mayor Jacob Frey saying: “This is the right call.”

Demonstrators took to the streets where Mr Floyd died, with some chanting and carrying banners that read “I can’t breathe”, as they marched towards a police station, where windows and a patrol car were damaged and graffiti was sprayed on the building.
