Derek Chauvin, one of four police officers charged with the death of George Floyd, may face an additional third degree murder charge. As a result, Judge Peter Cahill postponed the trial Monday.
Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer seen kneeling on the neck of George Floyd for more than nine minutes, is set to go on trial this week.
According to Quinto’s mother and sister, an officer handcuffed Angelo, as another kneeled on his neck for a horrifying five minutes, eerily echoing what happened with George Floyd seven months prior. In a video recording obtained from his mother, Angelo pleaded with officers, “Please don’t kill me.” It then shows police inverting an unmoving Quinto into custody, blood smeared on his mouth and dripping onto the floor.
