Four officers were suspended after a black man has died in custody in Minneapolis. The decision of suspension was taken after an oppressing video of the incident was posted online.

An observer recorded the video. In the video, a white cop kneeling around his neck during an arrest, and the black man was saying he could not breathe.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Tuesday that four police officers were fired and that the victim was George Floyd.

Floyd’s death occurred Monday night. Following the incident, FBI and state law enforcement agencies took the case in their custody.

The incident shows a comparison to the case of Eric Garner, another black man from New York, who died in 2014. He had no arms and begged for his life. He also urged the policemen that he could not breathe.

Floyd was a father and a security guard. He worked at Conga Latin Bistro. Restaurant owner Jovanni Thunstrom remarked Floyd had lived in Texas before.

He described Floyd as the type of employee who would do anything to help their customer. He also offered secure driving service to home for those who had too much alcohol. Floyd also helped a woman to find her car keys.

Darnella Frazier took the video a police encounter with Floyd. She was on a visit to her friends. Then she saw the tragedy outside the Cup Foods market.

Frazier soon began recording. It was a ten-minute video and later, she shared the video Facebook. Frazier remarked that being Black in America should not be a death sentence.

She also described the scene. She said for five minutes they watched a white officer press his knee into a Black man’s neck.  Lastly, she viewed, “when you hear someone calling for help, you’re supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic, human sense,”
