The tweets come after the death of George Floyd and a call for change
On May 25, George Floyd died by homicide according to two separate autopsy reports. CBS News reports that an independent report filed by the Floyd family found that Floyd died from asphyxiation. The report from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner agrees that Floyd’s death was in fact caused by homicide, but it says that Floyd’s heart and lungs stopped working “while being restrained” by officers.
Officer Derek Chauvin, who put his knee on the neck of Floyd, was originally being charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. The charges have been upgraded to second-degree murder for Chauvin, and three more officers have been charged according to CNBC.
People all over the world have been calling for change, including criminal justice reform and a call to action for change. Protests have been ongoing after the death of Floyd and celebrities and people in power are commenting on the situation and using their voices to be heard.
