On the evening of May 25, the seller of a store in Minneapolis, Minnesota, suspected a local resident, George Floyd, that he had paid for a pack of cigarettes with a fake $ 20 bill. Less than an hour after that, eyewitnesses filmed a video that shocked America: Floyd lying near a police car wheezes “I can’t breathe,” while one of the police officers presses his neck to the asphalt with his knee, while others hold him handcuffed.
It lasted almost 9 minutes, police Derek Chauvin released the neck of the already lifeless Floyd only after the ambulance arrived. Doctors failed to reanimate the 46-year-old man - the hospital stated his death. However, strangulation was not called its cause, but only a combination of factors that included Floyd's general state of health and his intoxication at the time of detention. Police claimed that the man was probably under the influence of drugs and resisted the police.

In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.
Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.
"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.
In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.
