George Floyd Civil Legal Team Issues Statement Following Federal Indictment of Four Minnesota Officers for Violating George Floyd’s Civil Rights
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Nationally renowned civil rights attorneys Ben Crump, Antonio Romanucci, and L. Chris Stewart released the following statement regarding the federal indictment of the four officers involved in the killing of George Floyd for violating his civil rights:
“Today's federal indictment for criminal civil rights violations associated with the murder of George Floyd reinforces the strength and wisdom of the United States Constitution. The Constitution claims to be committed to life, liberty, and justice, and we are seeing this realized in the justice George Floyd continues to receive. This comes after hundreds of years of American history in which Black Americans unfortunately did not receive equal justice. The constitutional violations that George suffered are clear, and were also detailed by our civil litigation team last July. Further, the additional indictment of Derek Chauvin shows a pattern and practice of behavior. We are encouraged by these charges and eager to see continued justice in this historic case that will impact Black citizens and all Americans for generations to come.”
