According to the transcript of the call released by the state of Minnesota, the caller -- a store owner -- told the operator that Floyd entered the store drunk and tried to pay for something with"fake bills." He later left the shop and sat on his car. It was there where police found him when they arrived at the scene.
"Someone comes [to] our store and give us fake bills and we realize it before he left the store, and we ran back outside, they was [sic] sitting on their car," the caller said."We tell them to give us their phone, put their... thing back and everything, and he was also drunk and everything and return to give us our cigarettes back and so he can, so he can go home but he doesn't want to do that, and he's sitting on his car cause he is awfully drunk and he's not in control of himself."
The operator then asked the caller for Floyd's race and sex."No, he’s a black guy," the caller replied."Alright," the operator said, letting out a sigh according to the transcript, before the caller asked,"How is your day going?"
6:25 p.m.: Investigation is 'top priority' for DOJThe Department of Justice has made the investigation into Floyd's death a"top priority," Erica MacDonald, attorney for state of Minnesota, said at a press conference.MacDonald said President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr are"directly and actively" monitoring the case.
"It is critical, it is essential, it is imperative that the investigation is done right and done right the first time," she said."And that is what we are going to do."No federal or state charges against the officers were announced at the press conference.
Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman asked for"patience.""Give us the time to do this right and we will bring you justice -- I promise," Freeman said.He said his office has been flooded with calls on the status of the investigation. The main question, he said, has been,"what're you gonna do about the murder of George Floyd?"
"We are going to investigate as thoroughly as justice demands," Freeman said.He called the officer's action"excessive and wrong," but said he needs to determine if it was criminal.Both MacDonald and Freeman called on the public to come forward with any information they may have.
There was a delay in starting the press conference, which MacDonald apologized for and said she was hoping to share a development but that it was not the right time.5:35 p.m.: City releases complaint history of 4 officersThe police officer seen in a video with his knee on Floyd's neck was involved in 18 complaints prior to being fired, according to records released by the city.

Walz said the purpose of the National Guard was"to protect people, to protect people safely demonstrating, and to protect small business owners.""The anger and grief of this moment is unbearable. People deserve to be seen. People deserve to be heard. People deserve to be safe," he said in a statement."While many Minnesotans are taking extensive safety precautions while exercising their right to protest, the demonstration last night became incredibly unsafe for all involved."
The National Guard Adjutant General will work with local government agencies to provide personnel, equipment, and facilities needed to respond to and recover from the protests, according to Walz's office.There will also be about 200 members of the Minnesota State Patrol that will work with state, county, and local community and public safety partners. State Patrol helicopters and fixed wind aircraft on the ground will assist law enforcement officers, the governor's office said.
5:03 p.m.: Families of Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery issue joint statementThe families of Floyd, Breonna Taylor andAhmaud Arbery-- all of whom died after incidents with current and former law enforcement -- are demanding change and calling for government action to address this"national crisis."
"We're devastated about the senseless violence that has broken the hearts of our families," the families said in a joint statement."While we are grateful for the outpouring of love and support, it's important that now – more than ever – we use our voices to enact change, demand accountability within our justice system and keep the legacies of Breonna, Ahmaud and George alive. This is a national crisis and our government needs to take immediate and widespread action to protect our black and brown communities."
The families have called for a congressional hearing and a national task force to create new bipartisan legislation that is aimed at ending racial violence and increasing police accountability.This undated photo courtesy of Breonna Taylor family shows Breonna posing during a graduation ceremony in Louisville, Ky.

Protestors can do what they do best without causing collateral damage or destruction to other people property. If is protest you protesting do so peacefully. Dereck Chauvin look what you started! Shame on you. The man didn't resist as you lied. If he broke the law all you had to do was put him in handcuffs and take him to jail. We wouldn't be here. We're tired of this.
But isn’t there good people on both sides of this thing President Trump? Democrats are loving the destruction. Their puppets are out there destroying everything while they do nothing. They think its going to win them an election. All it's doing is making their state into one big ghetto. They are not protesting. They are rioting and looting.
Though I understand their anger, this violence does nothing to help the cause. Unfortunately violence begets violence. Please explain to me how this is considered protesting? Are my eyes lying to me? Nobody condones what happened to George Floyd, he deserved better, but how can you call this a protest?
Looters and rioters . There i fixed your fake headline . Tragically sad! Good to see ppl standing up against the biggest gang we have in this world. The police work for us they are supposed to serve us.They’re our servants and somewhere over time we forgot that and they started to try and rule us I don’t agree with violence but they started it 🤷🏻♂️
Power to the people ✊ Death to the mainstream media! ⚔️ Whether you like it or not, the question at the end of the day is: DID THE KNEE OF THE ARRESTING OFFICER END THE LIFE OF GEORGE FLOYD OR WAS IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR IT TO HAVE DONE SO? Murder is a serious crime. This is a murder trial. Every question must be asked or jury will be hung.
This is the most astounding case of stupidity ever; on the part of the medical examiner and mayor! What is the cardiac history of Floyd’s family? What respiratory or blood pressure problems, or diseases common to inner city demographics might he have suffered from? I believe firmly these officers will be able to collect millions from city if they get right lawyer and might even be able to counterdue George Floyd’s family for defamation and death threats made to them.
The mayor rushed to judgment on this with no toxicology report, no thorough forensic examination, and a deliberate effort to fudge the science to appease the crowd. Result? No change in police training! More people WILL DIE. Procedures faulty, not men who enforce. Recall mayor. These rioters aren’t obeying social distancing guidelines while they burn down and loot the city.....and many aren’t wearing masks...where’s the media outrage
Being Black, Floyd very possibly had major health issues. Need full X-rays, MRIS, CAT scans, toxicology & document pre-existing organ & tissue damage related to drug or alcohol use not officer’s knee. Then note any trauma to neck. I hope the city’s incompetent ME is doing full tic report and thorough examination of heart, respiratory, and other organs and looking at medical history of George Floyd as well. I sparred with 500 lb opponent 6’8” tall and didn’t run short like Floyd.
Time for the Governor to call out National guard. Anarchy unacceptable. Paul the Apostle says so. Also, recent observations suggest Floyd may have had unknown health problem. In other words: possible cop could not have killed him. Is there a reason those policemen have not been charged. Had that been people of color, an arrest and charged within hours of the crime.
Good for them ! Makes sense. Use violence to protest violence. Seems logical to me. Good Lololol anniefreyshow Hmmm well good luck to the citizens who actually need law enforcements help... this is just stupidity. What an absolute embarrassment to humanity. MLK, Ghandi, Yeshua would be sorrowful to see this reaction. You can’t fight fire with fire.
Did ABC give them the match. Sounds like they are flaming the fires for news ratings. Bravo! At least they’re looting with their masks on. Coronavirus Good! _iamjarrod Leftists attacking Leftists. Protesting? ali_hoxie You mean rioters. Let’s get that straight. When you loot, Rob, steal, set fire, you are a rioter.
“ protesters “ lol. Only an idiot can explain this as reasonable and in some devious way, needed. Riot not protest! Where’s the media outrage that the rioting mob isn’t wearing masks or social distancing? How can they be so reckless and defy their government and put us all at risk? People of America... your 'President' ordered the armed forces l to shoot American citizens. JUST LET THAT SINK IN GUYS... LET IT SINK IN.
Although I am a white man, my brother is of color! I stay in constant fear for him. I do not agree with all this violence! Neither would George Floyd or any of the other victims, however I understand the astronomical and overwhelming pain and fear that that nation is feeling!💔 Can someone put the animals back in their cage please?
Stop calling it a ‘protest’.....it’s a riot and at this point it’s no longer being done in the name of George Floyd. The president said in his tweet that he hates to see Minneapolis and the leadership not doing there jobs is a lack of control . So if its a lack of leadership how come the president dont go there and take over?
You see how mean most White's are? Allu like to push the black man and yet complain when he retaliates These people are not protesters. They are enemy combatants. MayhemMSP Thugs. I don’t condone this action, but this makes sense unlike Target. THAT WAS NOT PROTESTING. THAT WAS RIOTING, LOOTING, STEALING , ARSON. Nothing to do with PROTESTING... JUST AN EXCUSE TO CAUSE DESTRUCTION...
CarlaRK3 👏👏👏👏 America watches their cities burn. A quiet seething rage is growing in the hearts and minds of every American of every other race in this country as this senseless violence and lawlessness is ALLOWED to carry on. Every latino, asian, white, indian watch as blacks burn our cities Putin is smiling widely this morning. His plan is working perfectly.
BanksterOfLove This is all so fucked up It was NEVER a matter of if - but WHEN! Hey remember when the peaceful lockdown protesters were called racist and terrorists? LatestAnonNews Hands up! DON'T LOOT! Would Dr. King approve of this? Enough with the destruction!!!! Sadly, all this distruction hasn't brought the poor man back from the dead.
so this is the way to protest and expect change? Those people participating in this are just thugs and criminals looking to break the law. I wonder what those same people would think if their homes were burned down under the cover of protest? These are not protesters, this is not a protest. Define it for what it is! Riots, mob violence, and crime! There is not any justification for this, none!
Amazing how every picture I see of looting and violence in Minnesota there's white people but black people are getting all the blame for it. America ☝️ worth it. Salute all you brave protesters Are you sure the protestors set it on fire? 👀 I’ve seen video of alleged white male cops starting the vandalizing. Stop blaming us for everything bad. Do more research and get back at us.
They arent protesting jack shit. 'Violent criminal thugs disgustingly capitalising on the death of George Floyd' Fixed it for you Come on. kill the policeman for freedom and democracy. ali_hoxie “In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” -Nietzsche Sad. And all to protest violence. But the anger is real, and justified, and nonviolence hasn’t changed the racism. How will it end? Sad.
Criminals Righting A Wrong. Explain this donlemon TheRevAl JusticeForGeorge GeorgeFloyd ACAB JusticeForFloyd riots BlackLivesMatter PoliceBrutality fridaymorning RodneyKing LARiots LootingForGeorge Lol, this is how many hours after the National Guard showed up? 🤨🤨🤨 as a reminder I would like to announce that most white people aren’t deranged enough to join police forces with ignorant opinions about skin color. I have never been a police officer 👍🏻
哇 人权呢？自由吗 What beautiful scenery of democracy and freedom! 😎🍉 TwitterBanTrump What beautiful scenery of democracy! They don't have guns, they haven't taken it over. Look at your own damn image. you love to see it Gun control coming up aimforpeace Some people are actually saying that a cop should be shot in Minnesota everyday until charges are filed that's what some people are saying
Protesting?! SMH.. they are rioters... They ain’t protesters! They are literally looting over Floyd’s death! That’s a beautiful thing unfortunately it’s gotta be violent and unfortunately violence is what it takes apparently. Keep pusing the people and the people fight back, oldest story in history next to hookers robbing johns
Perhaps you should identify this guy he sees a central figure in a number of videos... Holds himself like he has had some kind of training cop/military/militia/white supremacy group! Obviously, someone with an agenda that's not to do with the death of George Floyd. Riots not protesting anymore riots and looting
JXavierFaust GOOD. Burn it down, boys, burn it down. The way it needs to be done! Shit shouldve happened the whole last decade, till there's murder charges and those grease balls ain't cleared of murder Wow Gabriel_X_Two The Riots Must go on til change occurs I loved the first riot I watched for a wrongful death. Thought a riot would make a difference. Now I just can’t take it seriously. It’s been proven time after time that this doesn’t change anything. It only makes a hurt community worse
How is that helping Those aren’t protest, those are criminal thugs rioting, there is a large difference. Most of us want accountability from the PD and justice for George, we aren’t looting and burning which takes away from the focus of the brutal death of this man. Can’t call it a protest if the liberals are setting police precincts and other places on fire and trying to kill people can you? I call it criminals committing crimes on a massive scale. But I guess the PC term of protest is the new phrase for acts of crimes.
Justice for George Floyd Hang the protesters! the government should stop massacring these unarmed and peaceful protesters. they are just expressing their demands. They are actually heroes while people sit on twitter and do nothing. Policemen murder people. There are even videos showing you. Again. How does this solve the issue. It doesn’t. This is senseless and in the long term will mean nothing for the African American community. Soon there will be martial law if this continues and things will escalate to shootouts in the streets if we don’t get a handle on this.
We need to fucking riot!!! Burn them down!!! They overloaded the gas lines to start these fires and it wasn’t the protesters that started breaking store windows to start looting, they were undercover cops! The sooner those dirty cops are arrested the sooner this will calm down. They could make the riots stop tonight. Even if there were no protests those arrests need to happen.
Still want to take our weapons away Dems? 2nd amendment is for this reason How does this kind of violence make anything better? Pitiful people! bringing dishonor to his life and memory! I don’t think they are social distancing properly. You act like you're going to show a video now you show us a commercial and nothing but Dead Space anybody else watching this or thinking about looking at the video Don't Waste Your Time you're just see a commercial for insurance
AntifaTerrorists Oh my god! Now the far left and far right wing nut jobs have joined in destructive purpose. Great. I love how your can report the people involved took over a government building by force and set it on fire, yet still just refer to them as protesters. Fuck off It is beautiful scenery of America
Protesters don't burn down police stations and loot stores! Fake news is the EnemyOfThePeople FYI this is a protest if goverment can't JusticeForGeorgeFloyd , WE PEOPLE should find the cops and kill them! if you do not do this, the next victim will be you or your brothers and son. we must warning the cops, we are not coward, eye for eye, blood for blood! BlackLiveMatter Joker
Prayers for anyone in those communities that might need emergency medical treatment. After this is over, count the bodies of those that die bc of these riots. NOTHING but a bunch of brainless animals! You don't have to be Tucker Carlson to understand that looting and setting fires is not protest. In fact, it is counter-protest, because the people who wish to demonstrate peacefully are no longer able to do that.
Good if goverment can't JusticeForGeorgeFloyd , WE PEOPLE should find the 4 cops and kill them! Joker Fact check: “Criminals” destroy property and set fires. “Protesters” do not. Get your terminology straight. Violence is sometimes the answer. Protesters always get criticized for using force against a government that has normalized police brutality against people of color. You can only take a knee for so long. Sometimes violence and the threat of violence is what needs to take place
Current mood Finally some good news after all this tragedy. I told you , You got to get ready for the big pay back 😡 got to pay back !!! Violence is the cry of the suffering. People are fed up with the police. We want justice. We want accountability. FUCK THE POLICE! These are the same people cry for justice and racial equality, but their action prove otherwise. SHOUTING FOR JUSTICE...THE HYPOCRISY AT ITS FINEST
Keep going. Ah yes the black way of protesting, free ticket to loot and do the things they know best how to be destructive and take free stuff! SHOUTING FOR JUSTICE..THE HYPOCRISY AT ITS FINEST We must fight for black brothers and sisters, the revolution must continue! we will hold the gun, fight against violence police!BlackLiveMatter JusticeForGeorgeFloyd GeorgeFloyd
Keep it up & the state will flip red. WHOEVER STARTED THESE STUPID RIOTS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE SAME GOES WITH TEH POLICE OFFICERS. The usual series of events. Destroying businesses and neighborhoods. Terrorizing citizens. All in the name of 'justice'. Police standing around as the city burns. The city leaders making excuses and calling for 'calm'.
People demands justice over the MURDER of George Floyd. That's how you do a headline And stop calling violent rioters, protestors. You’re doing an injustice to reporting and we know Twitter won’t fact check you. They’ll say it was peaceful protestors. LOL. The police set that precinct on fire. DatFurryRaccoon
LostInAusten75 Or, '...People protesting the APPARENT death of George Floyd....' Whatever - it worked as if it were planned..... And you're calling it protests? THAT'S TERRORISM! These are NOT protests! These are RIOTS! FakeNews There are people that live there who will no longer have a city that is livable. I find this sad, especially since many of these businesses probably just opened back up.
Surround the St Paul area with barbed wire and troops and just wait. Lockdowns work! this is way overdue. Everyones been brainwashed by corporate owned fake news, politicians, and celebrities into thinking its always RIGHT v LEFT. Trump v Democrats... It's one big reality TV show to keep us busy while they rob us blind. MLK said it best:
Riot tell us justice is everyone’s is problem not just black people Dangerous is unchecked racist police officers. Everyone that was in the third precinct got out. ShortGiraffe18 This isn’t about George Floyd and you know it. What if they burn your tv station? You’re all liars. Quit, these are not protesters. These are criminals. They are just looking for a reason to loot and commit arson.
tatzanx Good !!! People are tired of people of color being killed !!!!! Enough is Enough !!!!! Karma coming to US.interfare in Hong Kong and now get the taste what we taste Animals. It's the 1992 LA (aka Rodney King) riots all over again. Fires, police retreating etc. Only worse because now its more than 1 city History always repeats itself when nothing changes.
Trump is responsible for this carnage! Still no arrest THIS PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS ASWELL DUDE!!! I've got a bitchen idea, let's protest the police by burning down the fucking city we live in....IT'LL BE EPIC!!! Okay Dylan, hold my beer!! How hilarious that protestors in HK did the same thing but reported as “ they’re fighting for freedom” Photo: protestors attacked a fashion brand shop and took the clothes away
POTUSofDEATH Should RESIGN 102,000+ DEATHS Great New Video This is what happens when you vote Democrat MinneapolisRiot GeorgeFloydprotest GeorgeLloyd No news source is reporting the truth about Jordan Pederson MinneapolisRiotsWereAnInsideJob Burning, destruction, looting are not the solution to this problem. barbaric
Funny how over 3 times as many white people are killed by police. But they don't burn cities to the ground..... Pathetic ARREST THE OFFICER WHO KILLED GeorgeFloyd Also those that stood around watching, doing nothing to help George How is this helpful?!! Why are black leaders not standing up against this destruction?!😡 surely anyone with any sense can see this harms any so called black lives movement! MLK must be rolling over in his grave
Burn it down!! They burned cars, mattresses, plastics, etc -And these stupid bastards will be complaining of being hit with an epidemic virus in 10 yrs because of underlying conditions! Now they have asked for the police to respond with deadly force. Black Lives Matter is just the KKK. Instead of white people they're black. This proves to America that they too can and do commit hate crimes.
Savages You spelled riot wrong To y'all saying this is bad, I bet a good amount of you had an issue with the kneeling during the national anthem. Y'all wonder why they don't do a 'peaceful' protest? They have, but y'all get butt hurt by that too. How do we know that the police didn’t cause this fire too?
🤘 LockThemAllUp more violence is not the answer 20$ 20$ why did it take 4 cops to talk to him about 20$? Why were they trying to arrest him over 20$, it’s crazy. Why? MustStopHomicideByCop “Protesting” Really? That’s a weird way of saying rioting. Ridiculous! No violence! Arrest that killer cop now and this will calm down. It's not hard to do
This is not true What if the evidence to convict the officer was in that building? 🤔🤔🤔🤔 minneapolisriots bad ass That's a fantastic photo Meanwhile the President is complaining about Twitter. So this is May’s tragedy. Alright, what are you gonna do June? Rioters not protestors. Resign, Amy Klobuchar. George Floyd's blood is on your hands. You chose to not prosecute abusive racist cops when you could have. Shame on you.
They’re not criminal thugs, they’re not capital. They’re human beings who are angry and tired of being oppressed in the nation that calls them the former and refuses to recognize them as the latter. BlackLivesMatter I guess social distancing and 'stay at home' takes a back seat to rioting.. unless you're protesting against the Democrat tyrants.
Burn it down..... A riot is the language of the unheard - MLK Good I hope that cop is inside Its hunting season in Minneapolis. Go ahead! Have another pointless press conference Friday! Minneapolis WILL BURN EVERY NIGHT until there are arrests!!!! What part of that do leaders in Minneapolis not understand?!?!?
They are not protesting his death. They are just rioting with help from outsiders to riot. The utopian world of Socialists and the Democrats. Call out the National Guard and restore order! GovTimWalz SocialismFails reasonable target for payback, makes more sense than looting Target In the 80's my mother and I got evicted from a Chicago rental because I had a black friend. Can we just please love eachother now and from now on?
they haven’t been heard for long time so. solidarity and stay safe 💪🏼🙏🏼 LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TheRISEofROD Why are all the cops I can see, white? How do you know they are protesting the death of George Floyd as you are reporting? You were there and asked each rioter their motives?
TwitterBanTrump SIGN! and RETWEET ABC you are the problem they are not protesters, but you know that,don't you. Beautiful 💪🏾 This is how all the Blue Cities will eventually end. Anyone that can should leave. Holy shit Now do the Cops house. Love it! Show your statement Here's your tip: Any news organization that is using 'protests' instead of 'riots' after this point is not to be trusted, listened to, or given any credibility.
Not reportedly they took over and seized the 3rd pct. GeorgeLloyd We need to demonstrate more power as citizens and nobody is going to just hand it over. All over the world this is how people get their voices heard when injustice becomes overwhelming. BlackLivesMatter Police have now evacuated the precinct and fire crews will let it burn...
And yet still no arrest on the 4 ex-officers! Charge them with murder! Awesome news. You mean 'murder' I suppose ... Well the cops killed a guy How do we know it wasn’t the police that did it just like they did autozone? Good, hopefully they’ve over to the next precinct 👍 WeNeedPrince
Protesters enter Minneapolis police station, set firesMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Protesters angered by the death of George Floyd , a handcuffed black man who died while in police custody, gained access to a Minneapolis police precinct on Thursday, the third... Makes sense if the officers are out surrounding the alleged murders house, who would stop them from doing this? FUCK MINNEAPOLIS POLICE! FUCK MINNEAPOLIS POLICE! FUCK MINNEAPOLIS POLICE!

2nd night of violent protests over Minneapolis man's deathViolent protests over the death of a black man in police custody break out in Minneapolis for a second straight night, with protesters in a standoff with officers, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas, outside a police precinct and looting of stores. Burning down low income housing under construction in your community to own the police ruining your community. GeorgeFloyd shots fired and reports of a body
Violence again rocks Minneapolis after man's death; 1 killedProtests rock Minneapolis for the second straight night after a black man's death in police custody. One person is killed in what police are investigating as a homicide amidst violence that included looting and setting fires. Nothing says 'protest' like mass looting of consumer goods There are actually two things going on. Protesting and Looting. The looters are shitting on the memory of the man, the protestors are justifiably protesting the murder of a man by police. The only homicide I know of tonight is a pawn shop owner defending his property. Who is better for blacks ?
George Floyd Minnesota protest updates: Governor activates National GuardThe police officer seen in a video with his knee on George Floyd 's neck was involved in 18 complaints prior to being fired, according to records released by the city. Just out of perspective, because I don’t know, how many complaints does an average police officer receive each year? 18 complaints? 18 opportunities to save George Floyd's life. 18 is a lot of complaints. The person who dealt with these complaints needs to explain why the 19th ended in murder.
George Floyd Minnesota protests updates: No charges announced as officials ask for 'patience'The Department of Justice has made the investigation into Floyd's death a 'top priority,' Erica MacDonald, attorney for state of Minnesota, said at a press conference. Let’s here the whole truth. So if you don’t get you way it’s ok to trash a city... To the FBI: I say BS. The video of the murder is more than needed to warrant arrests. Your just wasting time to fraudulently placate & blow smoke up the Minneapolis community. Trump & Barr ordered you to bury it! Get these thugs of the streets even as civilian This was the second rather obvious misstep by the authorities in the wake of the killing. They know it and so do we. However violence protest is less effective than persistent, unrelenting civil disobedience. Don’t squander this opportunity. minneapolisriots GeorgeFloyd
Declare Racism A Public Health Crisis, Minneapolis City Council VP SaysProtests over the police killing of George Floyd have shaken Minneapolis this week.
