‘I can’t breathe’: George Floyd’s death reignites questions about racism and police power

Four Minneapolis police were fired after the death of a black man who an officer had pinned to the ground, his knee on the man’s neck, for about eight minutes. Before becoming unresponsive, the man, George Floyd, repeatedly said that he couldn’t breathe. Floyd’s death follows an all-too-familiar pattern of black people dying in interactions with police.
