Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey

Minneapolis mayor says anger over George Floyd death 'not only ...

says he believes officer Derek Chauvin should be charged in Monday’s death of George Floyd. Chauvin and three other officers were fired Tuesday.  If most people, particularly people of color, had done what a police officer did late Monday, they’d already be behind bars. That’s why today I’m calling on Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to charge the arresting officer in this case.

“When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic human sense. What happened on Chicago and 38th this last night is simply awful. It was traumatic and it serves as a clear reminder of just how far we have to go.”

Being black in America,” Frey said, should not be “a death sentence.”

Prosecution: the institution and conducting of legal proceedings against someone in respect of a criminal charge

The Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis said in a statement the officers were cooperating in the investigation.   “Now is not the time rush to (judgment) and immediately condemn our officers,” the statement said. “Officers’ actions and training protocol will be carefully examined after the officers have provided their statements.”

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says that the process needs to be done right and that if given time, he promised justice will be delivered.

When asked if he’d comment on the evidence in the investigation, namely the bystander’s video, Freeman said it’s a violation of his ethics. “I will say this, that this video is graphic, and horrific and terrible, and no person should do that,” he said.

Freeman said that it’s his job to determine if the officer violated a criminal statute.

“And there is other evidence that does not support a criminal charge. We need to weigh through all of that evidence to come through with a meaningful determination, and we are doing the best of our ability, ” he said.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
