Massive protests have been happening all over America after video footage of George Floyd’s untimely death started circulating.
George, who was a black father, was in police custody after being accused of a minor crime. He died after a cop by the name of Derek Chauvin put him in a hold that restricted his air supply. Issues like this have been happening for many, many years — this one just happened to be caught on tape.
And, the public view of police has been damaged. They’re no longer the heroes who protect us. Instead, the general view is that they escalate situations to make them worse. That may be why networks have canceled long-running shows such as Cops.
