Family demands charges against all 4 officers in Floyd death
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — George Floyd’s family has demanded the arrest of all four police officers involved in his death.
The Floyd family on Wednesday visited a makeshift shrine at the Minneapolis street corner where Floyd died on May 25 after a white officer pressed a knee on the neck of Floyd, a handcuffed black man, as he pleaded for air. The officer, Derek Chauvin, has been fired and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Three other officers who were present were also fired but have not been charged in Floyd’s May 25 death. Family attorney Ben Crump repeated his call for all four officers to be charged.
