The death of the American George Floyd is 'inexcusable', The Daily Mail reported referring to the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"I think what happened in the United States was appalling, it was inexcusable," he said "We all saw it on our screens and I perfectly understand people's right to protest what took place. Though obviously I also believe that protest should take place in a lawful and reasonable way."

"Of course black lives matter," Jonhson noted challenged by SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford.

The protests in the US came following a video showing African American Floyd's arrest. Floyd was suspected of shopping with fake money at a store.

He was handcuffed and thrown to the ground, after which a police officer pressed him on the asphalt with his knee. Floyd screamed that he couldn’t breathe, but the police officers didn’t pay attention to him. The African American was hospitalized, but doctors failed to save his life.
