George Floyd’s Murder: Over 40 Protesters, CNN Reporter Arrested

Over 40 people have reportedly been arrested or summoned in New York, US in relation to protests over the alleged murder of an unarmed Blackman, George Floyd by a white police officer.

Also reportedly arrested is a CNN journalist, Omar Jimenez.

CNN claims he has been taken into police custody during a live broadcast at the site of the protests in Minneapolis, after clearly identifying himself to officers.

Jimenez’s crew, including a producer and a camera operator, were also placed in handcuffs, according to CNN.

CNN alleged that its camera was also taken into custody and continued to record as the crew was handcuffed, with police seemingly unaware that the camera was still on.

The officer who killed Floyd earlier this week is named Derrick Chauvin.

The Minneapolis Police Department says the killer police officer already had some 18 complaints against.

Violent protesters erupted across the US on Thursday, May 28, 2020 due to the murder.

In a video that has since gone viral, the officer is seen heartlessly kneening on Floyd’s neck for about eight minutes with Floyd crying in pain that “I can’t breathe.”

Other white police officers were seen standing by doing nothing to save the blackman from the murderous hands of their white colleague.

Twitter warns

US President, Donald Trump, has made a seeming racist reaction to the protests in Minneapolis, threatening to send the military there to apparently invade the protesters.

But Twitter has placed warning on his tweet, likening it to a glorified violence.
