The city of Minneapolis announced Friday (12) that it would pay $ 27 million in restitution to the family of George Floyd, in compensation for his death after a violent police approach.
In May 2020, Floyd was suffocated by the knee of a white police officer and died shortly thereafter. Images of police action spread across the world and sparked protests against racism and police violence.
The agents who caused the death are being prosecuted and tried this month.
