MURDER BY COP
Remember ‘taking a knee”?
Mr. Floyd wasn’t resisting. Police were called for a non-violent crime. He was subdued, he was compliant. He followed orders. Once on the ground, he expressed he couldn’t breathe, he reported chest and neck pain, he asked for help. The public there were also stating that the man was on the ground.
The family of George Floyd – who died after pleading that he couldn’t breathe while a police officer held him down with a knee on his neck – say they want the four Minneapolis officers involved charged with murder.
“They were supposed to be there to serve and to protect and I didn’t see a single one of them lift a finger to do anything to help while he was begging for his life. Not one of them tried to do anything to help him,” Tera Brown, Floyd’s cousin, told CNN’s Don Lemon.
Four officers involved were fired Tuesday, the police department said, and state and federal authorities are investigating the case. That includes Officer Derek Chauvin, the man seen on video restraining Floyd with his knee, Chauvin’s attorney Tom Kelly said.
