8 Minutes and 46 Seconds
8 minutes and 46 seconds. This is how long a police officer held his knee on the neck of George Floyd. He was unresponsive for almost 3 minutes of that time. This is an outrage and we here at Torchlit Tavern are disgusted by this incident and the many other instances of police brutality against black people over many years. We fully support the Black Lives Matter movement and the peaceful protesters that are out there trying to actively make a change. We hear you. We see you. We are here for you.
Please consider donating to some of these links to aid the Black Lives Matter movement and those in need.
