Sen. Klobuchar: 3 more cops charged in George Floyd death, other officer’s murder charge upgraded

Sen. Amy Klobuchar says Minnesota AG Keith Ellison is raising the charges against police officers in the George Floyd case and charging other officers involved.

“Ellison is increasing charges against Derek Chauvin to 2nd degree in George Floyd’s murder and also charging other 3 officers. This is another important step for justice,” Klobuchar said.

Ben Crump, an attorney for the Floyd family, released a statement on Twitter following Klobuchar’s announcement.

“This is a bittersweet moment,” Crump tweeted. “We are deeply gratified that @AGEllison took decisive action, arresting & charging ALL the officers involved in #GeorgeFloyd ‘s death & upgrading the charge against Derek Chauvin to felony second-degree murder. #JusticeForGeorge”
