TRIB LIVE – Frasat Ahmad: Seek justice for George Floyd the right way — vote
Don't let George Floyd die in vain. Exercising our right to vote and changing the faces of power can ensure that another innocent life will not be robbed from us.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!”
No innocent human being should have to die with these words on their lips.
A police officer, tasked to protect George Floyd’s life, mercilessly crushed George’s neck for 9 long minutes. He has been charged with murder.
Is George’s death an isolated incident, one in which an officer of the law went rogue and violated the code of ethics he swore to uphold? Or is George the latest casualty in a long line of systemic slaughtering of lives?
