As previously reported by The Inquisitr, on Monday, George Floyd, a 47-year-old unarmed African American man, died in police custody after a Minneapolis Police Department officer pushed his knee into Floyd's neck for approximately 7 minutes, even as he tried to explain that he couldn't breathe.
The death sparked protests, some of which have turned violent, not just in Minneapolis but in cities across the country.
On Friday afternoon, a group of about 11 Amish people turned up near downtown Minneapolis to join in the protests. Wearing the traditional black and dark colors of the community, some members held signs. One, for example, read, "I can't breathe," referencing Floyd's dying words. Another poster referenced the Bible, the cornerstone of Amish life, reading, "Thou shall not kill any man." Another simply read, "Justice for George Floyd."
The event was captured on video and put up on Twitter by user @NedWhat. As can be heard in the video, some passerby applauded the group's singing.
