MINNEAPOLIS (CNN/WJW) — Quincy Mason Floyd, the son of George Floyd visited the site of his father’s death along with nationally renowned civil rights attorney, Ben Crump, Wednesday.
They both made comments during the visit.
The family’s attorney, Ben Crump, also spoke Wednesday and repeated his call for all four officers to be charged.
“He died because he was starving for air,” Crump said. “He needed a breath. So we are demanding justice. We expect all of the police officers to be arrested before we have the memorial here in Minneapolis, Minnesota, tomorrow.”
Protests have been held in cities around the country in response to the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis. Floyd died Monday, May 25, when officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes.
Chauvin has been fired and charged second-degree manslaughter. Three other officers who were present were also fired but have not been charged in Floyd’s death.
Crump said the other officers — two who helped to restrain Floyd and one who didn’t intervene — failed to protect a man who pleaded for help and said he couldn’t breathe. The Minneapolis Police Department has identified them as Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng and Tou Thao.
Many are calling for the other officers to be arrested as well.
Many protests have turned violent, including in Cleveland.
