#NoJusticeNoPeace CHARGE THE POLICE!!!
The people have spoken and the other officers involved in George Floyds death have all been charged with 2nd degree murder, and Derek Chauvin’s charges have also been increased from 3rd degree murder to 2nd degree murder. All of their bail has also been set at $1 Million.
Thomas Lane, J.A. Keung and Tou Thao were the other officers on the scene. Thou was charged with aiding and abetting second degree murder in the commission of a felony; the other officers face similar charges of aiding and abetting.
“This is a significant step forward on the road to justice, and we are gratified that this important action was brought before George Floyd’s body was laid to rest,”
“That is a source of peace for George’s family in this painful time. Attorney General Ellison has informed the family that his office will continue to investigate and will upgrade the charges to first-degree murder if the evidence supports it.”
“We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support by Americans in cities across the country, and we urge them to raise their voices for change in peaceful ways. Our message to them is: Find constructive and positive ways to keep the focus and pressure on. Don’t let up on your demand for change.”~ Benjamin Crump (George Floyd’s family attorney)
