USA – Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis has taken responsibility for the ‘I can breathe’ tweet posted after the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin.
Mark Davis, who is reported worth $AUD650 million, spoke up after a post that said “I CAN BREATHE” was shared by the Raiders on Twitter when former police officer Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd.
Floyd’s death in police custody last year sparked worldwide protests against racial injustice and police brutality against Africans, and on Wednesday morning Chauvin was convicted on all three counts: second degree unintentional murder, third degree murder and second degree manslaughter.
Floyd repeatedly told police “I can’t breathe” when Chauvin’s knee was on his neck for more than nine minutes, and those words became the catchcry of the Black Lives Matter movement.
