If anyone told you the protest, phone calls and spreading the word doesn’t help. Show them this ✊🏾
Just in! All four cops have been arrested. FAMILY’S REACTION: “This is a bittersweet moment. We are deeply gratified that Attorney General Keith Ellison took decisive action, arresting & charging ALL the officers involved in #GeorgeFloyd's death & upgrading the charge against Derek Chauvin to felony second-degree murder. #JusticeForGeorge “

It’s about time! I’m not sure how they went home without being arrested in the first place. BUT I’m happy that all of the protesting and phone calls have made a difference in them taking this case seriously.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison announced Wednesday (06-03-20) all four former Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd are now charged.
The charges against former officer Derek Chauvin have been upgraded to second-degree murder. Court records now show Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder without intent, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. With the upgraded murder charge, his bail has been upped from $500,000 to $1 million.
The other three officers--Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng--are now charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. - via FOX 9

One thing I want to point out is that THIS is just the beginning. This is not the time to let off people’s necks. This case isn’t over. And if you ask me this is JUST the beginning.
