Minnesota AG Says Charges Will be Filed Against the 4 Cops in George Floyd’s Death

*According to Keith Ellison, the Minnesota Attorney General, he expects charges will be filed against the four police officers involved in the death of George Floyd. Meanwhile, those now-ex-cops say they don’t plan to cooperate with the investigation.

As has been widely reported, Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died on Memorial Day as he was arrested by four cops over allegedly trying to buy cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill.

He was seen in a video pleading that he couldn’t breathe as white officer Derek Chauvin continuously pressed his knee against his neck for well over 5 minutes.

Chauvin and the other three officers in Floyd’s arrest are: J Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao.

Ellison told CNN that officials are ensuring they have “a very strong case” before announcing charges.

“Everybody believes that this is a violation of Mr Floyd,” Ellison said.

“And I believe that everybody wants to see these charges filed as soon as they can be. But again, I do want to say we have seen cases that seem so clear go south.”
