Attorneys for George Floyd’s family say the country is at a “tipping point” for policing in the U-S. Attorney Ben Crump on Wednesday announced a federal civil lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis and the police officers involved in Floyd’s death.

“While all of America is dealing with the public health crisis of the coronavirus pandemic, black America has to deal with another public health pandemic of police brutality.”

Floyd died May 25th after officer Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee against Floyd’s neck as Floyd said he couldn’t breathe.
