As reported by the Washington Times, Ohio police officers have arrested 20-year-old BLM supporter, Isaiah Jackson, in connection with a photo of a man supposedly kneeling on a child’s neck.
The world erupted in fury when George Floyd died on May 25th when a video of a police officer kneeling on his neck for almost nine minutes went viral.
Floyd’s death sparked a global resurgence in the Black Lives Matter movement which has seen protests across the world.
Now, however, an image similar to that of Floyd’s has spread across the internet showing a man supposedly kneeling on the neck of a toddler alongside the caption “Blm now mf.”
The photo, which has drawn criticism from Unapologetic, has sparked yet more anger online and the Washington Times has since reported that a 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection to the image.
