These black men’s experiences were caught on camera, spurring anger and action
The experiences of three black men were captured on video and released over the past few weeks, and while each incident ends differently, they all provided a glimpse of the dangers that black men face in America.
The videos of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Christian Cooper have led to a renewed round of anger, frustration, sadness and protests. These are their stories:
The four officers involved in Floyd’s death were fired from the department Tuesday, Minneapolis police said.
On Friday, Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman charged Derek Chauvin, the officer whose knee was on Floyd’s neck, with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
