On Friday, May 29, 2020, Assemblywoman Diana Richardson was pepper-sprayed by the New York City Police Department at the demonstration at Barclays Center, according to a video by Gwynne Hogan.

Amanda Luz Henning Santiago reported on cityandstateny.com, “On May 29, Assemblywoman Diana Richardson and state Sen. Zellnor Myrie attended what they had hoped would be a peaceful protest against police brutality and institutionalized racism at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. However, despite their positions of power as state legislators, both were pepper-sprayed by New York City Police Department officers (Myrie was handcuffed with a zip tie, eyes still burning).”

Derek Chauvin Trial: More new cell phone video shown in court from the day George Floyd was murdered.
Warning: Video may contain graphic content that some viewers may find disturbing. Alyssa Nicole Funari, 18, testified about cell phone video she captured of George Floyd’s arrest.

“The City of Minneapolis settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Floyd’s family for $27 million. Chauvin was convicted on two counts of murder and one count of manslaughter on April 20, 2021. The trial of the other three officers at the scene of his death is scheduled to begin August 23, 2021.”_Wikipedia.org

Mohammed Haddad reports on www.aljazeera.com, “Between January 2013 and May 2021, police in the United States killed at least 9,179 people, according to data compiled by Mapping Police Violence, a research and advocacy group. Since Floyd’s death exactly a year ago, the group has recorded at least 1,068 police killings across the country – an average of three killings every day.”

Mohammed adds that, “153 police officers (1.7 percent) were charged with a crime and 38 (0.4 percent) were convicted.” (democrat and republican politicians protect criminal police officers).
