Minneapolis cop who knelt on man’s neck charged with murder

The white Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd's neck was arrested and charged with murder Friday, and authorities imposed an overnight curfew to try to stem three nights of often-violent protests that left dozens of stores burned and looted. Derek Chauvin, 44, was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the case. He was also accused of ignoring another officer at the scene who expressed concerns about the black man as he lay handcuffed on the ground, pleading that he could not breathe. Floyd had been arrested on suspicion of using a counterfeit bill at a small grocery store. An attorney for Floyd's family welcomed the arrest, but said he expected a more serious murder charge and wants all four officers involved to be arrested.
