Murder of George Floyd made him a household name overnight. With Eric Chauvin kneeling on his neck and ignoring the bystanders, incremental shortage of breath led to an incredible tragedy that impacted the course of the Black movement in America.

The sentence was essential to appease the Black community with a piece of justice after decades of ongoing brutality against African-Americans.
