George Floyd

George Floyd bio je afroamerički muškarac porijeklom iz Houstona, Teksas. Umro je 25. maja 2020. u Powderhornu, naselju južno od grada Minneapolisa u državi Minnesota, Sjedinjene Američke Države. Nakon što je uhapšen i privezan lisicama na licu mjesta, policajac Derek Chauvin je držao koljeno na Floydovom vratu dok je George privezan ležao licem prema dolje na asfaltu ulice u kojoj se događaj desio. Koljeno je držao 8 minuta i 46 sekundi, od toga 2 minute i 53 sekunde nakon što Floyd nije davao znake života.[3][4][5][6][7] Tri policajca, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng i Thomas K. Lane učestvovali su u Floydovom hapšenju, pri čemu je Kueng držao Floyda za leđa, Lane za noge, a Thao je gledao i stajao u blizini.[8][9]

Incident je zabilježen na pametnim mobitelima prolaznika.[10] Hapšenje je izvršeno nakon što je Floyd navodno pokušao koristiti krivotvorenu novčanicu od 20 dolara u obližnjoj prodavnici. Video snimak koji je napravio prolaznik, na kojem se vidi kako uhapšeni Floyd ponavlja "Molim te", "Ne mogu disati" i "Nemoj me ubiti", širili su se socijalnim mrežama i medijima na internetu. Sva četiri policajca otpuštena su 26. maja 2020.[11]

Događaji[uredi | uredi izvor]

Nakon Floydove smrti, demonstracije i protesti su započeli 26. maja, koji su u početku bili mirni, ali kasnije istog dana postali su nasilni kada su razbijeni prozori na policijskoj stanici. Dvije prodavnice su zapaljene, a mnoge opljačkane i oštećene.[12]

Chauvin je uhapšen 29. maja i tereti ga se za ubistvo trećeg stepena i ubistvo bez predumišljaja.[13] U optužnici navedeno je i da se oglušio na prijedlog kolege da bi Floyda trebalo okrenuti na stranu, umjesto da ostane u položaju licem prema dolje. Autopsija je obznanila da je Floydova smrt ubistvo izazvano kardiogenim šokom u momentima dok ga je policajac držao privezanog i vršio pritisak na vrat.[14] Postojale su i druge "značajne okolnosti" jer je Floyd bio srčani bolesnik, te je nedavno koristio opojnu supstancu metamfetamin.[15]
