George Floyd was murdered at the hands of the Minneapolis police on May 25th, 2020. He was 46 years old, and it took nine minutes and 29 seconds for officer Derek Chauvin to end his life. Three fellow police officers, Tou Thao, Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane, stood by and watched Chauvin take Floyd's life. On April 20th, 2021, Chauvin was found guilty of Floyd's death. Everything written before this moment is a fact. They are a collection of dates and times meant to convey meaning in what is ultimately meaningless. George Floyd is dead. Murdered by the State and ever since, we are asked to make sense of the senseless. To again, make meaning where there is none. This is a crossroads.
