Floyd, an unarmed and handcuffed Black man, died May 25 after former officer Derek Chauvin used his leg to pin Floyd's neck to the ground for nearly nine minutes. Chauvin, 44, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.New police body camera footage reveals George Floyd's last words were 'I can't breathe'"It was not just the knee of officer Derek Chauvin on George's Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, but it was the knee of the entire Minneapolis Police Department on the neck of George Floyd that killed him," attorney Ben Crump said. "The City of Minneapolis has a history of policies, procedures and deliberate indifference that violates the rights of arrestees, particularly Black men, and highlights the need for officer training and discipline." Read MoreLawsuit accuses elected officials of 'deliberate indifference' to police brutality Crump called the killing of Black people by police"a public health crisis" that has disproportionately affected people of color the same way as the coronavirus pandemic. "This is the tipping point for policing in America," he said.Crump added,"Everything seems to have stopped and got shut down in America during the coronavirus pandemic except racism and discrimination and police brutality against Black and brown people."The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Minnesota, outlines what it calls critical problems with police training, and the city's knowledge and"ratification" of a"culture of racism and bad behavior" in the police."This was nothing new for the city of Minneapolis," Crump told reporters, citing what he said was the"deliberate indifference" of elected officials to police brutality. Minneapolis City Attorney Erik Nilsson in a statement called Floyd's death a"tragedy." He said the city was reviewing the suit and will be responding to it. Referring to the charges against the officers, Nilsson said"it's very important that the criminal case proceed without interference."Crump called Floyd's killing torture. "Why do you think the George Floyd killing galvanized people around the globe?" he asked."It is because he was literally tortured to death, not in a third world country, but here in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the United States of America in 2020."Suit seeks to make it 'financially prohibitive for police to wrongfully kill marginalized people' The death, which was captured on video by bystanders, led to nationwide protests and a slew of police reform measures.

Police bodycam footage reveals Floyd's last words 06:46Protesters have chanted,"I can't breathe" -- Floyd's last words and a phrase embedded in the national conscience after New York police choked Eric Garner during a 2014 arrest, resulting in his death. Demonstrators also demand justice in the killings of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, and Ahmaud Arbery in Glynn County, Georgia.

The civil rights lawsuit will set a precedent, making it"financially prohibitive for police to wrongfully kill marginalized people -- especially Black people -- in the future," according to Crump.Three other officers involved in Floyd's death -- J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao -- were also arrested and charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.'use

From fish to fowl, you have to see these creatures to believe they're real!

Are you going to give the money to the people he hurt and robbed.If you do what you are supposed to do. The cops won't bother you. Shouldn’t get a penny... guy was a deadbeat meanace to society By how much I have had to put up with by BLM in the aftermath of George Floyd, I hope his family gets nothing!

Zero dollars went to help the Floyd family. Does that mean, the family is gonna give BLM a donation ? All the police officers gotta do is file bankruptcy and they don't get nottin.

Of course they did. 😂 And there goes the empathy No I don't believe it Good $$$$$$$$ The police officers? I feel so bad for the two police officers who were on their second day and didn’t attribute to his death but are being labeled as murderers because we don’t care snouts facts anymore. We only care for people’s feelings.

Time to make some $$$..... Some people are just to young to remember these guys ,but they are crises actors George floyd is hollywood a porn star an a actor Of course this turns into how much money can I get. No the man didn’t deserve to die & the officers deserve to be punished to the full extent of the law.

This move mitigated risk their ads would run w/content *defending* the killing of Floyd, too

George Floyd and the long battle to defund Chicago's school police'We need counseling, therapists and psychologists,' one student said. 'I see this with my own two eyes.' Why is the focus so much on reducing the police rather than re-orienting the police? They are a necessary public service, and while I understand that there is a reasonable limit to their presence, limiting their resources is not going to help anything. REAL NEWS So I guess they want to make Chicago look even more like a third world African country.
