Minneapolis Cops Involved In George Floyd’s Death Fired

3

The Minneapolis cops involved in the arrest of George Floyd before he died have all been fired, Mayor Jacob Frey said on Twitter.

“Four responding MPD officers involved in the death of George Floyd have been terminated,” Frey wrote. “This is the right call.”

Floyd, who is black, was seen on viral video being pinned down by Minneapolis police, yelling, “I cannot breathe” before he died.

A white police officer seen with his knee on Floyd’s neck was identified Tuesday as Derek Chauvin, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The FBI and Minnesota state authorities are investigating the incident.

“Being black in America should not be a death sentence,” Frey said in an earlier tweet. “For five minutes, we watched a white officer press his knee into a black man’s neck. Five minutes.”

“This officer failed in the most basic, human sense.”

  1. Fired but not charged with murder. Basically there are two sets of laws: one for the privileged government workers and the other for the serfs.
    Just wondering what if at least some people on the juries would prevent guilty verdicts in anti cop crimes. If the cops can hurt the people with impunity, then the reciprocal treatment makes perfect sense. Anarchy and disorder you say?- it’s already here with the two tiered “justice” system.

  2. You can see the cop leaning into it too…his hand seemed to be placed to put even more pressure on the guy….FBI should fall on these 4 cops hard
