The world has every reason to be outraged following the death of Minneapolis resident, George Floyd. His life was snuffed out by policeman Derek Chauvin as three others – Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao – enjoyed the spectacle.
Floyd pleaded for his life even calling his late mama who died two years ago for rescue.
In a rare move, a day after Floyd’s death, the Police Department fired all four of the officers involved in the episode, as Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County attorney also announced murder and manslaughter charges against Chauvin.
In a sharp contrast, when a white double murder suspect Sebastian Arzadon was arrested in Lawrence County, officers gave him water and dressed his wounds.
Within minutes, social media users couldn’t help, but notice the difference in police treatment in Tennessee, despite the gravity of the crime versus the episode in Minnesota which killed Floyd.
According to Lawrenceburg police chief Terry Beecham, 22-year-old Arzadon was charged with two counts of first degree murder, especially aggravated burglary, possession of firearm during commission of a felony.
Booked into jail on a $4.2 million bond, WKRN’s Andy Cordan noted “the suspect implicated himself in the crime and News Two has also learned that the handgun used in the commission of the murders was stolen recently in Lawrence County.”
Arzadon’s reported victims are 37-year-old Corie Williams and 28-year-old Benjamin Cunningham. Police have not released a motive for the killings or the relationship between Arzadon and the victims.
