 It all started with one white cop and one black guy. This is what happened on may 25 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, George was at a corner store buying something but the person ringing up his things called the cops on him for using a counterfeit bill. When the cops got there they arrested him and when they did they restrained him to the floor. The cop that had him in cuffs had his knee on his neck. George was saying I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe and the cop did nothing several minutes later. George’s body was not moving. The police said he died from a medical incident. After that went on the news people stated peaceful protest in minneapolis then it got all over the world people were doing peaceful protest all in different states when the cops were doing nothing and not listening to the people they broke out into riots and broke into stores and set cop cars on fire to get their word out that they are not going down without a fight. The cops used force on people, tear gas on people and some of those people were little kids. This was across the world where all the people were protesting. Cops took down people that were not doing nothing and injured the old and young but the cops didn’t care. They only cared that they had to stop the people and the people even got down with their hands behind their back saying I can’t breathe. A little while later after that happened the people begged the cops and swat team to take a knee for george and they did sp the riots had ended that people got their point to the cops and the cop that killed george he was arrested then released on a 750,000 bond. People who say all lives matter to them but black lives matter most cause to people you skin tell you you’re you can be a white guy all pull a knife on a cop and they will just talk you out of it then arrest you but if you a black guy and you did that you will get shot and kill i hate cause people didn’t even care then them saying all lives matter just to get noticed i dont think that right i just don’t.
