Fourth Weekend of Protests Against Police Brutality Planned

Another weekend filled with protest marches and other actions denouncing police brutality is set for various parts of Southern California.

The is the fourth weekend of actions in the Southland and across the United States in response to the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd was killed when a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and face-down on the ground.

The officer has been charged with second-degree murder, and three other officers involved in the arrest have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
