Linda Bronson started this petition to Mayor Jacob Frey and

     On May 25, George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was murdered by Minneapolis police. George was arrested for allegedly using a counterfeit 20 dollar bill. A few minutes after his arrest for a non-violent crime, George was killed. 

    Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeled on George’s neck for seven minutes. George cried out, “I can’t breathe” multiple times, but it didn’t matter. 

    As of right now, Chauvin has been charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. However, Chauvin was not the only officer at the scene. Three other officers, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Keung, stood by as George was killed. They listened as George and bystanders cried for help. Yet these three men did nothing. 

    Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Keung are accomplices in George Floyd’s murder. They stood by while an unarmed black man’ s life was taken. Yet these three men have not been charged for their parts in George Floyd’s murder. Even though they are accomplices, they walk free. 

    This repeated racial injustice is unacceptable. George Floyd was not the first black citizen to be subjected to police brutality. He was not the first American citizen to be murdered because of his skin color. This needs to end. 

    This petition calls upon Mayor Jacob Frey, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison to charge the three accomplices in George Floyd’s murder. These men helped kill a United States citizen because of the color of his skin. Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Keung need to be charged for their part in this injustice. 

    George’s life was worth living. Justice needs to be served.
