George Floyd and Derek Chauvin „bumped heads“ while working at nightclub, former coworker says

The Floyd family says they believe what happened on May 25 was in part personal. Their lawyer has called for Chauvin to be charged with first-degree murder, „because we believe he knew who George Floyd was.“

„Is there any doubt in your mind that Derek Chauvin knew George Floyd?“ CBS News asked Pinney.

„No. He knew him,“ the coworker said.

Minneapolis – Polizist im Fall George Floyd verhaftet

Die vier an dem Einsatz beteiligten Polizisten wurden entlassen. Sie wurden zunächst aber weder festgenommen noch angeklagt, was zu wütenden Protesten führte. Minnesotas Gouverneur Tim Walz sicherte am Freitag bei einer emotionalen Pressekonferenz zu, dass die Justiz das Vorgehen der Beteiligten schnell untersuchen werde.

Der Gouverneur teilte das Entsetzen über den Vorfall. „Das Kapitel, das diese Woche geschrieben wurde, ist eines unserer dunkelsten Kapitel“, sagte er.
