Minnesota Police Officer Who Kneeled On George Floyd’s Neck Before He Died Is Fired And Arrested


A Minnesota police officer who was allegedly recorded kneeling on George Floyd’s neck before his passing on Monday was reportedly involved in at least two forced incidents during his occupation.

Minneapolis police said Floyd, 46, was captured Monday evening after he attempted to use fabricated documents at Cup Foods. Officers reportedly stopped Floyd from his car before handcuffing him and putting him on the ground.

Floyd Became Unconcious 

Video posted to social media showed an officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck as he repeatedly says he can’t breathe. Floyd reportedly loses consciousness moments later.

In light of footage representing Floyd’s arrest, the four officers involved in Monday’s incident have been dismissed.

While all four officer’s identity is not revealed publically but it is reported that Derek Chauvin, 44, was the officer seen with his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes. The other officer taped at the scene was classified as Tou Thao.

Chauvin joined the Minneapolis Police Department 19 years ago.

History Of Cases

In 2006, Chauvin and five officers reacted to a reported stabbing which resulted in Wayne Reyes’ shooting death. Officers shot Reyes after he picked a shotgun on them.

While responding to a domestic feud in 2008, Chauvin purportedly shot a man in the abdomen after the man grabbed for an officer’s gun.

In 2017, Lamar Ferguson sued Thao and another Minneapolis police officer for unreasonable oppression. The prosecution alleged that the officers randomly stopped and searched Ferguson and a pregnant woman as they walked home. Thao threw Ferguson to the ground who was handcuffed and the other officer kicked him.

Thao claimed they arrested Ferguson on an exceptional arrest warrant. He also said he struck Ferguson after one of Ferguson’s hands slid out of the handcuffs.

The case was ultimately settled out of court for $25,000.

The FBI and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) are examining Floyd’s arrest.
