Officer Who Allegedly Killed George Floyd Wants The Murder Case Against Him Dismissed
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has asked a judge to dismiss murder charges against him in the death of George Floyd, according to an information released by CNN today. Mr. Derek Chauvin wants the judge to upturn the murder case that was filed against him with regard to the death of George Floyd and dismiss it as an accident.
Recall that Minneapolis police department fired Mr Derek Chauvin in the face of widespread and worldwide protest. A picture and video of the officer kneeling on the neck of George Floyd was being circulated in the internet and social media which culminated in the protests that almost grounded the United States in the black lives matter protest. The black people all over the world used the opportunity to decry the racial injustice meted out against them in the United States and indeed all over the world.
Many people have been kicking against the request made by Mr Derek Chauvin to have the murder case against him turned down or dismissed by the judge. They argue that the former police officer is trying by all means to exonerate himself from the death of George Floyd. They pleaded with the judge not to dismiss the murder case so that George Floyd and his family can get justice.
