George Floyd: Killer Ex-cop Chauvin charged for second-degree murder, colleagues to be charged

George Floyd murder: Wife of murderer Derek Chauvin files for divorce, requests change of last name

 

The policeman who kneeled on George Floyd’s neck leading to his brutal death will now be charged for second-degree murder.

Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison gave indication that he was increasing charges against former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin to second-degree murder and also charging the other three officers involved in the incident following calls for their arrest.

The three other ex-officers involved in the killing include Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng.

US Senator, Amy Klobuchar made the announcement in a tweet.

‘Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is increasing charges against Derek Chauvin to 2nd degree in George Floyd’s murder and also charging other 3 officers. This is another important step for justice’.

The US is expecting the official announcement to be made soon, more than a week after Floyd was killed while under arrest by the Minneapolis police, sparking nationwide protests against police violence against black citizens.

Derek Chauvin, videoed with his knee pressed into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes, had previously been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. His colleagues, Thomas Lane and J.A. Keung, who helped restrain Floyd, and the fourth officer, Tou Thao, who stood near them, were not initially charged.

An additional video later released captured where Chauvin and two other white officers were filmed kneeling on Floyd while another stood beside them.

Contrary to the state autopsy report, an independent autopsy ordered by George Floyd’s family revealed that he was murdered by Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin after knee on his neck ’caused asphyxia that led to lack of blood flow to the brain.’
