It comes as protests and riots erupt across the U.S. after George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died in Minneapolis on May 25 after a white cop pressed his knee against his neck for eight minutes.

The officer involved, Derek Michael Chauvin, was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter days after footage of the incident went viral.

Protesters took to the streets demanding reform after what many consider another senseless death and example of police brutality.

Mr Floyd had been accused of using a counterfeit $20 bill at a deli.
