George Floyd (October 14, 1973 - May 25, 2020) George Perry Floyd Jr. was a black American man born on October 14, 1973 in Fayetteville, Georgia and who died on May 25, 2020 at the age of 46 in Powderhorn, killed by police officer Derek Chauvin in one more occurrence of the so common misuse of force in the United States.

The cause of death was suffocation, after Chauvin put a knee in his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. All because Floyd was accused of trying to pay with fake $ 20 while in an altered state of consciousness at a Minneapolis, Minnesota store. However, the strong execution of authority was due to a case of racism by Derek Chauvin. Both the murder of George Floyd and racism generated a large number of demonstrations and protests, in addition to the rejection of the excessive use of force by the police. More than 400 cities in the United States and more than 10 countries held demonstrations as part of the Black Lives Matter movement.

His last words went viral. "I can't breathe" and "They are going to kill me" were some of her last sentences. Derek Chauvin was charged with second degree murder and four other ex-officers were also charged, Thomas Lane, Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao, of contributing to the death of George Floyd.
