Former NBA player and current ESPN basketball commentator Stephen Jackson took to social media to remember the man he called his "twin", George Floyd, in a series of posts.
Floyd was arrested for forgery Monday night in Minneapolis, Minnesota. During the arrest process, he was cuffed and restrained with a knee to his neck from officers for more than seven minutes. Paramedics came and found his lifeless body under the police officer. Bystanders took video of the officer's use of force and it spread on social media.
The FBI and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are investigating the death and what role the Minneapolis Police officers played in it. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced that the four officers who responded to the call had been terminated.
Warning: Jackson's posts include explicit language.
