An otherwise peaceful Tuesday morning was interrupted by a video showing a Minneapolis police officer placing his knee with all of his weight on the neck of a man laying prone on the ground. The man complained that he could not breathe, while bystanders pleaded with the officer to relent. He did not. The 40-something man, George Floyd, died minutes later at Hennepin County Medical Center.
