The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Minnesota is calling for is an independent, thorough, fair, transparent investigation in the police killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police Monday.
“It’s enormously important to have a reliable and fair investigation that the community can rely on in assessing exactly what happened out there on that street.”
ACLU-Minnesota Executive Director John Gordon. Four MPD officers involved in the death have already been fired.

“It is also fair for people to watch that video and say to themselves, this is another black or brown person who has died at the hands of police officers with people watching and begging the officer spare his life.”
