“Police Officer Derek Chauvin has been arrested.
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.
Derek Chauvin also faces a charge of second-degree manslaughter.
Floyd’s family and their attorney, Benjamin Crump, are upset Chauvin wasn’t charged with a more serious offense.
“We expected a first-degree murder charge. We want a first-degree murder charge. And we want to see the other officers arrested,” Crump and the family said in a statement. “We call on authorities to revise the charges to reflect the true culpability of this officer.
