A video taken by a bystander showed a white Minneapolis police officer pressing his knee on an African American man’s neck for several minutes during an arrest on Monday night. The man, identified by family members as George Floyd, stopped moving and later died. The FBI and state agencies are investigating the incident. The four officers involved in the arrest, including Derek Chauvin, who was the officer on top of Floyd according to his attorney, lost their jobs on Tuesday.
