BREAKING: Attorney General Keith Ellison Brings Charges Against All 4 Officers in Floyd Case
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said that he will elevate charges against the former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck while adding charges of aiding and abetting murder against the other three officers at the scene, according to CNN and other sources.
In the recorded evidence video, former officer Derek Chauvin, was kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly 8 minutes as Floyd begged for air on May 25th. Chauvin will now be charged with second-degree murder.
“I can assure you we are taking a fresh look,” Ellison told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “We plan to hold everyone accountable who is legally culpable,” he said, explaining that while he has spent the last 24 hours reviewing evidence, he cannot ethically comment as a prosecutor.
