Breaking: Derek Chauvin, the former officer involved in George Floyd’s death, is taken into custody

Trump’s warning of ‘shooting’ echoes previous comments about how police use force

“When you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?” Trump told assembled officers, physically showing the motion of an officer shielding someone's head to keep it from bumping it on the squad car. “I said, you can take the hand away, okay?”

Last year, Trump was in Chicago addressing a conference of police chiefs and pilloried the city’s then-police superintendent, Eddie Johnson, who had invoked “our city’s core values” in explaining why he would skip the speech. Trump responded by belittling Johnson in his speech, saying the city deserved a top police official who “knows what he’s doing.

“Calling people thugs and calling on people to get shot stems from the same sort of attitude that resulted in the death of George Floyd,” Ellison said during an appearance on “CBS This Morning.” “The tough guy, macho man … attitude is the heart of the problem. … We need the president, and everybody else who thinks that you can get to a better place through threats of violence, to stop it.

In an appearance later Friday on CNN, Ellison said he expects “there will be charges” against the four Minneapolis officers involved in Floyd’s death, though he noted his office is not the one to make that call.Trump campaign takes aim at Minneapolis mayor and Minnesota governor The CNN crew was arrested early Friday while reporting on the protests. CNN said in a statement that the three journalists were arrested “for doing their jobs, despite identifying themselves.” The crew was later released.

How about the other cops

Hopefully he doesn’t get out on bail!

What you seem to forget is that the man had killed another man a couple of days earlier and the police tried to arrest him for that reason but the man fought during his arrest

Finally, it's turn to arrest 3 more

ONE DOWN 3 TO GO! And even once we have all 4, this is all window-dressing until the trial convicts them of murder.

I'm not a native English speaker. I guess that's why I don't understand why it says 'involved in George Floyd's death' instead of 'who killed George Floyd'.
