FEATURING JODY ARMOUR – The killing of George Floyd has sparked mass protests in Minneapolis with thousands of people turning out onto the streets and police firing stun grenades, rubber bullets, and tear gas. America has witnessed through smart phone video documentation, yet another brutal murder of a black man at the hands of police and although there has been a demand for Black Lives to Matter for years now, will Floyd be yet another victim in the deadly toll of racist policing?
Floyd’s killing came to light at almost the same time as another incident unfolded in New York City’s Central Park which could have turned deadly but didn’t. A liberal white woman named Amy Cooper called police falsely claiming that a black man was threatening her. The man in question, Christian Cooper filmed the incident exposing her lie.
Tied to both incidents is the recent killing of a black jogger named Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia by a former police officer and his son, also captured on video. It is part of a deadly and disturbing pattern that echoes throughout American history.
