To: Dear Minnesota Governor Tim Walz . I am shocked to learn about the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, following an attempted arrest that turned deadly with police in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 25 May 2020. The actions taken by the police officer involved in this tragedy are unconscionable and reflect a wider pattern of excessive use of force against ethnic and racial minorities in the USA.
I call on you to appoint an independent prosecutor and ensure that this death does not remain in impunity and that George’s family receive some semblance of justice after the unnecessary violence that resulted in his death.

The use of unnecessary excessive, and unlawful force by the police in the USA, especially against racial and ethnic minorities, is deeply disturbing and must stop immediately. I urge you to take all necessary actions to send a clear message that the unlawful use of force by the police is unacceptable and will not be tolerated anymore. No one should fear for their lives when interacting with officials sworn to protect them.


George Floyd should be alive today.

Thank you for your time.
Yours sincerely,
