London - A furious shopper confronted one of the officers involved in the death of George Floyd after he was given bail.
J Alexander Keung was shopping at a Cub Food store in Plymouth, Minnesota, a day after he was released from the Hennepin County jail on £600 000 (about R12.9 million) bail.
Keung, 26, was one of three officers arrested after doing nothing when senior officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Mr Floyd’s neck as the fraud suspect pleaded: "I can’t breathe."
Keung was with a friend when the woman asked him for his name. He responded: "Yeah, that’s me."
The unnamed woman said: "So you’re out of prison and you’re comfortably shopping in Cub Foods as if you didn’t do anything?’ Keung, who was holding a packet of Oreo cookies, replied that he wouldn’t call it ‘comfortably’ and that he was stocking up on ‘necessities".
Following the disgraced officer, the woman told him: "You don’t have the right to be here. You killed somebody in cold blood." She then shouted to other shoppers: "This is the officer who was let out of jail today for shooting George Floyd." Mr Floyd was not shot.
