Watching the footage of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck on Monday as Floyd says “I can’t breathe” several times before dying shortly after pains former NBA forward Devean George. “The sickest part is watching the video of the death [and] just seeing how nonchalant and comfortable [Chauvin] was,” said George, who is from Minneapolis. “How nonchalant the other officers were. That was the hardest part about watching it.”
What has made matters worse in the immediate aftermath, George says, is how the property damage caused during this week’s protests has taken the focus off the bigger issue. “The rioting glosses over the hot seat,” George told The Undefeated in a phone interview from Sacramento, California, on Thursday. “Keep all the focus and attention on what [the Minneapolis police] are going to do next. That’s the saddest part is we’re talking about riots now. I want to talk about what they are going to do. When are they going to arrest this man? That is all I want to talk about. I want them to stay on the hot seat.”
