PFAW Calls for Arrests of Remaining Officers in George Floyd Killing

WASHINGTON - Following the arrest of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin, who now faces murder charges in the killing of George Floyd, PFAW President Michael Keegan released the following statement:

“The arrest and charging of Derek Chauvin in the killing of George Floyd is entirely appropriate, but it is not nearly enough. Three other police officers stood by and failed to intervene, and as the Minneapolis police chief himself has said, that makes them complicit in George Floyd's murder. These individuals have been fired but they should also be arrested and charged. This and other actions are crucial to serve the interests of justice in this horrific case."
