Floyd’s family filed a lawsuit in July last year against former police officer Derek Chowdhury, who knelt around Floyd’s neck when he was arrested, and three police officers who did not serve and were charged in connection with Floyd’s death. The lawsuit alleges Floyd violated Floyd’s rights and the city.

George Floyd’s death is seen by many as a symbol of police brutality and a continuing “systematic racism” in a country rife with racial injustice, following decades of strong American waves of racism.
