FLOYD’S FAMILY CONTENT WITH NEW CHARGES AGAINST OFFICERS INVOLVED IN FATAL ARREST

The lead attorney for George Floyd’s family, Benjamin Crump, has said that the family is relieved to see new charges against police officers involved in the case.

The family, however, expressed the belief that the officers should have been arrested earlier.

Floyd, an unarmed 46-year-old Black American man, died on May 25, 2020, in the hands of a White police officer in Minneapolis.

Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison has announced that charges against Derek Chauvin, a police officer involved in the fatal arrest, have been upgraded to second-degree murder and that new charges have been filed against three other officers involved.
