On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man died after a white officer holding his knee on Floyd’s neck pinned him to the pavement while Floyd was in handcuffs. In the days that followed, public outrage grew over what some protestors and lawmakers said is another case of police brutality against a black man.

The police officer was fired and has been charged with third-degree murder. Three other officers also have been fired. (Washington Post)
