George Floyd murdered one year ago today by American law enforcement

Lee Heidhues – 5.25.2021

It was one year ago Derek Chauvin knelt on Georg Floyd’s neck and murdered him. The killer cop was convicted of murder last month and will spend decades in prison.

People took to the streets worldwide to condemn this action, all too symptomatic of American law enforcement treatment of Blacks. Derek Chauvin is just one symbol of the racism which permeates America at all levels.

The question today is, “One year after George Floyd’s murder by American law enforcement will there be any substantive change in how the cops treat Black people?”
