George Floyd’s untimely passing has caused a nationwide uproar in United States and pressure has been put on the Minneapolis police department to charge their own. The mayor of Minneapolis imposed a curfew Friday after the county prosecutor charged the fired Minneapolis police officer seen in a video with his knee on George Floyd‘s neck with third-degree murder.

The criminal complaint says, “Derek Michael Chauvin caused the death of George Floyd by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous to others and evincing a depraved mind without regard for human life.”

If convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, Chauvin would face up to 25 years in prison on the first charge and up to 10 years on the second.

“This is by far the fastest that we’ve ever charged a police officer,” Mike Freeman said (7:39). WCCO 4 News – May 29, 2020
