MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors are charging a Minneapolis police officer accused of pressing his knee against George Floyd’s neck with second-degree murder, and for the first time will level charges against three other officers at the scene, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

Widely seen bystander video showing Floyd’s May 25 death has sparked sometimes violent protests nationwide and around the world. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was fired May 26 and initially charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. The three other officers involved were also fired but were not immediately charged.

The Star Tribune reported citing multiple sources reported that Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison would be upgrading the charge against Chauvin while also charging Thomas Lane, J. Kueng and Tou Thao with aiding and abetting murder

Floyd’s family and protesters have repeatedly called for criminal charges against all four officers as well as more serious charges for Chauvin, who held his knee to Floyd’s neck, despite his protests that he couldn’t breathe, and stayed there even after Floyd stopped moving. Floyd, a black man, was in handcuffs when he died with his face pressed to the street.

  1. State of MN has just made a Civil Rights lawsuit vs the Minneapolis Police Dept. The 4 kops should get life for murder. Watch the Video.

  2. But did they upgrade it because of the protests and riots and public pressure or because its the right thing to do. If its the first option then we are just in a cycle of protests. if its the latter then good for them now dont mess it up.

  3. The prosecutor just lost the case…very difficult to prove. Furthermore the more the riots continue, no jury will convict.

    Juries know that the only ones to protect them are the police. The politicians are not there for you. They will leave you to the savages in a heartbeat. Pandering to the savages will undo the American republic. History has a way of repeating itself. Bottom line, the Jew is on very shaky ground. However it works out, the Jew will be blamed.Jews have been front row and center in this insurrection. They will be set upon by armed Americans. The American will not allow the Jew to undermine their country.
