Minnesota judicial authorities charged 3 policemen who participated in the detention of an African-American citizen, George Floyd, that led to his death, and issued arrest warrants.
The Minnesota State Attorney, Kate Ellison, brought charges against the former Minneapolis City Police officer, Derek Sheen, to the level of second-degree murder.
The list of charges against Shane, whose actions during Floyd's detention resulted in his death, include 3 items: third-degree murder, second-degree murder, and unintentional killing.
Ellison brought charges of participating and assisting in the execution of the second degree murder to the other 3 policemen who were at the scene with Shane and participated in the arrest of Floyd, and according to the documents, the Minnesota State Attorney issued orders to arrest them all.
American cities, including Washington, DC, are witnessing massive protests against the violence of the security forces and racism, fueled by the killing of Floyd as a result of a harsh arrest by police officers in Minneapolis on May 25.
Against the background of this incident, the Minnesota authorities, the main suspect in the case who placed his knee on Floyd's neck during his detention, arrested what caused his death, and the police officer and 3 of his colleagues who participated in the accident were fired.
Floyd family members and those involved in the protests are calling for Shane to be charged with a first-degree murder and to punish all those involved in the accident.
