On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin as the world watched in horror at a video that Darnella Frazier captured on that dreadful day.

Now two years later a new film called “When George Got Murdered” examines what it was like for prison guards and inmates when Chauvin was arrested and just how it affected those around.

This gripping story shows a different take on one of the biggest officer-involved shootings and was directed by Terrance Tykeem the same one who gave you Jason's Letter. It stars the legendary television host and actor Montel Williams who plays Captain Cox and Don Most of Happy Days, rapper Beanie Sigel and Robert Wuhl of the television comedy series Arliss.

This was a story that spoke of the inside racism of African American correctional officers not being allowed to work in the block where Chauvin was housed, the threats directed towards one of the most hated men around the world, and the emotions of being a walking target for simply being of color, the wrong color in some eyes by those who are sworn to protect and serve. 

In all, it’s a gateway to keep the conversation going so that we may correct the wrongs and learn from mistakes of the past. 

This was a good account of other individuals who played a part when the cameras and news crews weren’t rolling. 

 “When George Got Murdered” is not rated by the Motion Picture Association and it is available on streaming platforms now.
