Two incidents took place this week, one in New York City and the other in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
A huge “I can’t breath” rally took place in Minnesota after the death of George Floyd who died in police custody. Four Minneapolis police officers have been fired after a video taken by a bystander was posted on social media showing Floyd’s neck being pinned to the ground by an officer as he repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe”. Floyd was later pronounced dead after being transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. Over 1000 people attended a rally outside the 3rd Precinct Police Station in Minneapolis, Minnesota to protest the death of George Floyd who died in police custody.
Then on Monday in Central Park, Christian Cooper (pictured left above) was bird watching when a white woman (pictured right) made a frantic 911 call on a Black man for asking her to leash her dog. The woman was later fired after the video went viral throughout social media.
