Many have taken the opportunity to highlight a fundraising page set up to support Frazier through her ongoing trauma.
Testifying during the trial, the teen told the court that she’s stayed awake on many nights “apologising and apologising to George Floyd for not doing more, and not physically interacting and not saving his life.”
The “Peace and Healing for Darnella Fund” aims to “support the healing and restoration of hope for Darnella – whatever that means to her.”
Its creator Mica Cole Kamenski said in a GoFundMe statement: “The brave young woman who filmed the murder of George Floyd, deserves peace and healing.
“In addition to the trauma of watching a black man be murdered by police, she has had to deal with trolls, bullies and ignorant people harassing her online.
“It took unbelievable courage for her to stand there and bear witness to such an awful tragedy. We all have our roles to play in the revolution against white supremacy. Darnella played an important one and should be uplifted, not shamed.”
Today's a good day to donate to the fund for Darnella Frazier, the teen who filmed George Floyd's death.
It is no exaggeration to say that Frazier’s footage was at the heart of Chauvin’s conviction.
Following Floyd’s death, the Minneapolis Police Department issued a statement saying the 46-year-old died because of a medical episode.
The police report said he was in “medical distress” when he was placed in handcuffs and insisted no weapons were used during his encounter with police.
There was no mention of one of the officers kneeling on his neck for almost nine minutes.
Scores of people have re-shared the document in the wake of the guilty verdict, proving how difficult it would have been to prove the cause of Floyd’s death without the hard evidence provided by the bold young bystander.
If Darnella Frazier hadn’t filmed what happened and uploaded it to social media, where would this case be?… https://t.co/sXqBryFHLi
