Hundreds of people participate in the “Walk, Stand and Speak for George Floyd” event on Saturday, May 30, 2020, in Huntington. Floyd, who was black, had been arrested May 25 on suspicion of using a counterfeit bill at a store in Minneapolis when a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck as he begged for air. Chauvin was arrested Friday and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, as well as being accused of ignoring another officer who expressed concerns about Floyd as he lay handcuffed on the ground, pleading for his life.
