Ben Crump represented George Floyd’s family and won a millionaire compensation from the city of Minneapolis.

For some time now, Ben Crump has become an almost constant presence in the United States for everything related to racial inequality and police brutality.

In the last decade, this 51-year-old attorney has been involved in the most notorious cases of African-Americans killed or seriously injured at the hands of the police.

We talk about Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Jacob Blake, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd or, more recently, Daunte Wright and Andrew Brown, each with a different story, but whose common destiny served to shape and drive the movement Black Lives Matter.

Crump barely has time to celebrate a court victory, such as the guilty verdict of former police officer Derek Chauvin on April 20 for the murder of George Floyd in May 2020.

We would love to say thanks to the author of this post for this amazing web content
