They were charged with aiding and abetting murder. "We are deeply gratified that @AGEllison took decisive action, arresting & charging ALL the officers involved in #GeorgeFloyd's death & upgrading the charge against Derek Chauvin to felony second-degree murder," Crump wrote in a post on Twitter.

to those who risk their life to riot n protest thankyouforyourservice

What took so long?

Give them Barabbas....

At long last the murderers are charged with murder.

This only shows that they could have been charged at any moment, but instead wasted time faking autopsy reports.


Time to find out why the original coroners report lied.


No bail prosecute to the fullest. 1st degree charge for all.

Read your caption. Those murderers were NOT kneeling on the ground. They were kneeling on a man's neck while he struggled to breathe. Fix it.

JimSterling Surely this will put an end to the riots, looting, and violence that people claim is because the officers hadn't been charged. Or, ya know, the rioters could keep ending the black lives they claim matter.

Don't Stop Now BLM 👏👏

Are they gonna make fake reports for them too?

The headline should start with 'Three out-of-control Maniacs wearing Police uniforms...'
