The officer involved in the Death of George Floyd has been released. The death which caused wide-scale outrage and riots worldwide threatens to disturb the peace again. Twitter was alight with the cause of death by gross mistreatment as the victim was heard to say I can’t breath several times is still fresh in the memory. There is fear that another round of riots will erupt as protesters took to the streets on the officer’s release on bail. The three other officers with him were also terminated of their appointments and face similar charges. It was the callousness of the treatment that was especially galling.
This injustice in the eyes of many is hard to forgive. His release may be very ill-advised indeed. When people feel that justice is not served it fuels acts that would not normally take place.
