Remember the Policeman who killed George Floyd? See The Punishment Court Gave Him

George Floyd is a black American who was killed by a violent policeman in the USA. Floyd was arrested because he was accused of buying a cigarette rate with a fake $20 note which was later proven not to be a fake note.

Racism is one of the major problems facing black people in America. However, George Floyd was not exempted from this racism. He lost his life to a cruel white Policeman who didn' t make a proper investigation before banging on him.

In a video captured by an eyewitness, it was seen that the policeman named Chauvin who is a white man pushed his knee on the neck of George Floyd for more than nine minutes when he and other three white police officer came to arrest Floyd.

After some minutes, George' s airflow to the lung was repeatedly reduced until he finally choked to death. This incident occurred on May 20, 2020, in Milestone.

Floyd' s death prompted protests against racism and police brutality in many cities in the U. S. and around the world last year.

Immediately after the incident occurred, Chauvin was sacked from the police force for not obeying the law. He was then later charged to court by Floyd' s family.

However, the court has finally sentenced Chauvin to 42 years imprisonment for second- degree murder, manslaughter, and international infliction of bodily harm.

The judgment was passed after 30 people and the police present testify against Chauvin saying he intentionally did the act.

Earlier that day, President Joe Biden disclosed that he phoned the family of Floyd. Biden said the family is very peaceful and we' re happy with the court judgment even though it will not be back Floyd to life.
