George Floyd

After the death of George Floyd due to the brutality by Minneapolis police people across America took to the streets to protest demanding justice for him. The hacktivist group Anonymous came back after years revealing some evidence against police brutality and Trump.

George Floyd is a 46-year-old man of colour who fell prey to police brutality on May 25th. He was arrested by the Minneapolis police department after an employee from a cafe called the police accusing Floyd of buying cigarettes without a proper bill and of being drunk. The police department immediately arrived at the place and restrained him claiming resistance. The police forced him down for over 8 minutes and later he was declared dead due to a cardiac arrest.

A video of an officer kneeling over his neck while Floyd repeatedly pleaded that he could not breathe has been going rounds. This video sparked a nation-wide protest with the Minneapolis police department firing the officers on duty while one of the officers involved, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. The protests have continued for six consecutive days where people took to the streets in large numbers to raise heir voice against the same.

The protest also turned violent with people breaking the curfew and defying guard troops in over 40 states in America.

Meanwhile, the hacktivist group Anonymous come back after 6 years of hibernation. They posted a video talking about police brutality in light of George Floyd's murder. In the video, the person is seen speaking about how the Minneapolis department has a number of records of brutality and murder in the past and that Floyd's death is just the tip of an iceberg in the long list of high profile cases of wrongful deaths. The group hacked the Minneapolis police department's website, played the song, 'Fuck the police' after intercepting the PD's radio station and also revealed damning evidence against Donald Trump, Jeffery Epstein and many others. They also hinted towards the truth behind the death of Princess Diana and the wrongdoings of the Royal Family.
