Prosecutors in the case against four former Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd intend to seek stiff sentences if the men are convicted, saying in court documents filed Friday.

People carry posters with George Floyd on them as they march from the Lincoln Memorial to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial during the March on Washington, Friday Aug. 28, 2020, in Washington. ST. PAUL, MINN.

Floyd, a Black man, died May 25 after Derek Chauvin, who is white, pressed his knee against Floyd's neck for nearly eight minutes as Floyd said he couldn't breathe and became motionless. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter.

FEDERAL/PROVINCIAL/MUNICIPAL Governments being sued. Constitutional Lawyer Rocco Galati. Why is the Ontario Provincial Goverment being sued? COVID19 Invoked measures are neither scientific or with medical significance.

What a joke. Supporting a known criminal and druggy.

First its life now its stiff penalties....make up your minds.

Why is this still in the news..

George floyd was a criminal


Why he died of an overdose. Hoping for another riot when the police walk? Or you just trolling click bate? FakeNewsMedia

That is hilariously stupid. It's clear now that Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose and overcharging the police involved will guarantee that the charges will be dismissed.

Good. I hope they the suffer.

Even though the coroner stated he died of an overdose?

Floyd swallowed his drug stash. He was complaining about not being able to breath before he was even on the ground. CTV is just a phoney loser news station.

Don’t know if u geniuses read the autopsy report-they cannot be charged with murder.

Even though COD was fentanyl overdose? Dude couldn’t breath when he was standing up for cripes sake...

This guy was a junkie criminal who happened to be black.

Rightfully or wrongfully If the cops are cleared watch for a civil war.

These stupid prosecutors always try to satiate the mob by overcharging the guy that the modern internet lynch mob wants hung. Then they get off and people cry about 'injustice'. It's actually hilarious to watch and would be more funny, if people weren't so fucking dumb nowadays.

Good luck with that....

HE DIED OF A FENTANYL OVERDOSE!! Couldn’t breath cuz his lungs were filling with fluid!!!

They will be found innocent!!!! Guaranteed!! And rightfully so!!

The cops will beat the charges !

Any juror who sees this will find the cops innocent.

Have any msm outlets interviewed Aracely Henriquez, the pregnant women he pointed a gun to her stomach while robbing and beating her?

They overcharged. The defense introduces the autopsy report and ...

He died an overdose so.. good luck with that? Lol.

He died of drug overdose.

Now cover the two white children killed during the riots

Say no to drugs kids!

Of his fentanyl dealer?

IF. convicted.
