According to previous reports, on May 25 in Minneapolis, the United States, African-American man Floyd was suspected of using a $20 counterfeit by a shop owner while shopping at a convenience store. The owner called the police. After the four policemen arrived, although Freud did not show obvious resistance, the police still pushed him to the ground. One of the white policemen, Drake Showan, pressed his neck with his knees for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. The police ignored Floyd's struggles and pleadings, and eventually caused him to fall into a coma and sent him to the hospital to rescue him from death. This process was photographed by passersby and spread online.
For the past few days, the riots caused by the incident have continued to escalate, and there have been protests in at least 140 cities in the United States.
