Earlier, the results of two separate autopsies released on Monday (June 1) declared that George’s death on May 25 at the hands of Minneapolis police was a homicide and the heart of 46-year-old George stopped beating while police restrained him and compressed his neck by kneeling on it.
Derek Chauvin, the 44-year-old Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on George, has been arrested on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. Three other officers involved in the arrest have not been charged.
The death of George has sparked massive protests across the US with the deteriorating law and order situation forcing the government to impose curfew in around 40 cities to maintain law and order.
