A video has circulated showing George Floyd the Minnesota man reportedly killed Monday by police urging young people to end gun violence.
Floyd, 46, filmed himself describing an incident in which he heard an adult supporting the use of guns. He went on to grieve the fact that kids are being killed and are killing others with guns.
It’s not promptly known when the video was filmed.
“Our youth are clearly forgotten, man, clearly wasted, man, it’s going to be you and God. You’re going up or you’re going down.”
Floyd passed away this Monday after four Minneapolis policemen detained him for allegedly attempting to use fabricated documents at Cup Foods. Officers reportedly stopped Floyd from his car before handcuffing him and shoving him to the dust.
Officer Kneeling Down On Floyd
Video posted to social media reportedly showed officer Derek Chauvin, 44, kneeling on Floyd’s neck for almost eight minutes as he repeatedly says he can’t breathe. Floyd is seen losing consciousness before his death.
The four officers involved in Floyd’s death have been dismissed. The FBI and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) are investigating Monday’s deadly incident.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner declared that Floyd’s cause of death is undetermined and will require further testing.
