Yep. Just a couple of hours after the union rep warned people not to jump to conclusions before all the facts were in. I'm really hoping the next step, and SOON, is criminal charges.neonzx wrote: ↑Tue May 26, 2020 4:16 pm Fastest terminations I've ever seen in law enforcement.
MPD Chief Arradondo: 4 Police Officers Fired Following Death Of George Floyd
https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/05/ ... rge-floyd/
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo has announced that four officers are now “former employees” with the department, following the death of George Floyd in South Minneapolis Monday evening.
On Tuesday afternoon, the office of lawyer Tom Kelly confirmed they were representing one of the officers involved in the case, and confirmed his identity as Derek Chauvin.
George Floyd was arrested Sunday night for an alleged forgery at a deli. Officers say he resisted arrest before one of the officers kneeled on Floyd’s neck.
The video shows Floyd struggling, and you can hear him saying he could not breathe. Four minutes in, Floyd appears to go unconscious. The officer continued to hold him down, until Floyd was pulled onto a stretcher.
He later died at Hennepin Healthcare.
And every officer is going to say they were resisting arrest if there is any use of force involved, even if the resisting is just them flapping their gums.
