BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country is closely following the developments of the murder case of George Floyd, who was murdered by two members of the Minneapolis police.

“I believe that the perpetrators of this inhumane act shall receive the punishment they deserve. We will be monitoring the issue,” Erdogan tweeted.

“I remember with respect George Floyd and extend my condolences to his family and loved ones,” he added.

In the past few days, mass protests have been held in response to the murder of Floyd, who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer.

The police officer has yet to be arrested, despite the presence of video footage, which shows him pressing his knee on the neck of Floyd.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
