In US news and current events today, one of the most iconic and disturbing moments to come out of the Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality after the killing of George Floyd occured in Charleston, South Carolina, when 23-year-old Givionne 'Gee' Jordan Jr. was arrested by police for giving an impassioned plea for peace and unity.
Every peaceful protester arrested may be an affront to the 1st Amendment, which guarantees freedom of speech from the Government. The George Floyd protests have shined a spotlight on police brutality and police violence, and this example is one of the most chilling ever recorded of a peaceful protest being shut down by police overreach. BLM protests continue across the nation, while the ACLU has pledged to investigate the case of Mr. Jordan and other peaceful protesters and journalists who have been attacked by police.
