  • People gather outside the Hennepin County Government Center to protest the death of George Floyd an unarmed black man arrested by police officers in Minneapolis Minnesota the United States

What did the prosecutor say?

. Three other police officers were also fired but have not been charged.

What's the latest on the protests?


"Minneapolis and Saint Paul are on fire".

Prior to Chauvin's arrest on Friday, Crump and Merritt called for a congressional hearing and a national task force to address deadly police-involved shootings. A day earlier, protesters demonstrated in Los Angeles and Memphis, Tennessee. The key to an upgrade in charges revolves around a determination of Chauvin's intent and premeditation to cause Floyd's death. We now know the number of minutes, not seconds, minutes that he pressed his knee down on the neck of a man who was handcuffed.

Almost two minutes before he removed his knee the other officers checked Mr Floyd's right wrist for a pulse and were unable to find one.

The full report by the county medical examiner has not been released, but the complaint states that the post-mortem examination did not find evidence of "traumatic asphyxia or strangulation".

The Secret Service could be seen taking at least one person into custody outside the White House on Friday, local media said. "I understand that. What we have seen over the past several hours and past couple of nights here in terms of looting is unacceptable".

The president hails the heavily armed white protesters in MI, who menaced public officials to oppose the pandemic lockdown, as "very good people"; he denounces the mostly unarmed, racially diverse protesters in Minneapolis as "THUGS".

US Protestors set fire to Minneapolis police precinct

President Trump has seized on the cascading violence in Minneapolis to do what he does best: inflame, divide and, most of all, distract - even as so many Americans reel from the ravages of disease and unemployment.

Mr Floyd's family and their lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said that the arrest was "welcome but overdue".

Diaz said unethical or racist conduct will not be tolerated regardless of whether employees are sworn correctional officers or other employees, or if the conduct occurs while they are on or off duty. "But he is calling for violence against American citizens during a moment of pain for so many". Floyd died soon after, according to police.

Former US President Barack Obama also weighed in, saying: "This shouldn't be "normal" in 2020 America".

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said the arrest was "a good first step toward justice".

Officers responding to reports of the use of counterfeit money approached Mr Floyd in his vehicle on Monday.

Around 8:19 p.m., Chauvin placed his left knee onto the back of Floyd's neck, refusing to move it despite Floyd's pleading, "I can't breathe". Floyd repeatedly said, "I can't breathe" and "Please, I can't breathe" as the crowd asked the police to stop.
