After the arrest of Derek Chauvin, the ex-officer who is charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, protests are still ongoing all over the country.
Demonstrations in Brooklyn went from peaceful to chaotic, which resulted in protestors being arrested and loaded onto a city bus; however, according to Shaun King, the bus driver, in solidarity, refused to drive it.
Shaun King posted to Instagram and wrote, “NYPD loaded up protestors they arrested in Brooklyn onto this city bus. The bus driver, in solidarity, refused to drive it.”
As the crowd cheers with signs, it can be seen in a video that someone with a mask on their face who appears to be the bus driver, gets up from the driver’s seat and stands up on the bus.
It is clear that this driver was not going to be responsible for carrying protestors who were demanding justice to jail, even though the video doesn’t show what happens next.
The family of George Floyd has hired former NYC medical examiner Michael Baden to perform a private autopsy.
During a press conference, Benjamin Crump stated, “We’ve just spoken recently with [the] district attorney. We’re going to take custody back of George Floyd’s body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy because we saw in the Eric Garner case and so many other cases where they have these people who work with the city come up with things that are such an illusion.”
As you know, George Floyd died, during an arrest, on Monday. A 17-year-old filmed the incident and posted the video, in which it went viral.
