Floyd Prosecutor: Evidence May Not Support Criminal Charges for Officers

George Floyd has become a household name this week, as his death has sparked protests, looting, riots, and the brink of a race war. It's truly sad that Floyd died, and it's sad that he died in the hands of the people who are supposed to serve and protect. And although there is a video showing an officer with his knees on Floyd's back and neck, we will never truly know 100% of what happened.


Floyd died Monday after he was restrained by a Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who knelt on his neck. Floyd had been arrested on suspicion of using a counterfeit bill at a grocery store.

However, Michael Freeman, the Hennepin County Attorney investigating the Minneapolis police officers' involvement in Floyd's death, stated on Thursday that not all evidence supports criminal charges against the officers.

“That video is graphic and horrific and terrible and no person should do that,” Freeman said. “But my job, in the end, is to prove that he violated a criminal statute, and there’s other evidence that does not support criminal charge.”

He added, “I will not rush to justice."

Shortly after Freeman’s comments, the Minnesota prosecutor’s office issued “clarification” regarding his press conference, stating that it is “critical to review all the evidence.”

In a separate statement, Erica MacDonald, the U.S. Attorney of the District of Minnesota, said her agency is probing whether the police officers committed any federal violations.

“Police officers, by the nature of their job, have the authority to use a certain amount of force when they are executing their duties faithfully and honestly and in accordance with their policies. So a police officer, a law enforcement officer, has the ability to use the right amount of force, but not excessive force, not excessive force as defined by the law. That is what we are looking at with respect to any federal, criminal violation, is that use of excessive force,” MacDonald stated.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz on Thursday signed an executive order activating the National Guard in response to protests over the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Walz said he issued the order at the request of local leaders who called on the state government for National Guard resources after “extensive damage to private property” occurred during the protests.

“As governor, I will always defend the right to protest,” Walz added, “It is how we express pain, process tragedy and create change. That is why I am answering our local leaders’ request for Minnesota National Guard assistance to protect peaceful demonstrators, neighbors and small businesses in Minnesota.”
