A wave of riots in the United States began in late May in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where a 46-year-old African-American, George Floyd, died as a result of police brutality. Orderly guards pushed him onto the asphalt and held him for more than eight minutes. One of them squeezed Floyd’s neck, who later died in intensive care. The police officers involved were fired and one of them was charged with negligent homicide. On 3 June, the Prosecutor General of Minnesota indicted three other police officers in the Floyd case.
