The state of Minnesota on Tuesday filed a human rights complaint against the Minneapolis Police Department in the case of George Floyd's death. An officer with the Minneapolis Police Department sustained knee pressure on Floyd's neck until Floyd died, a black American citizen in custody. Governor Tim Walz and the Minnesota Department of Human Rights announced the filing of the complaint at a news conference on Tuesday afternoon. A widely watched video showing Floyd's death sparked several violent protests around the world. The officer, Derek Chauvin, has been fired on third-degree murder and second-degree murder.

Three other officers involved were fired but were not charged. The governor said that this is a serious issue. It was reported that the state's human rights commissioner Rebecca Lucero would lead the investigation. Lucero's department will seek an agreement from Minneapolis city leaders and the police department to implement interim measures immediately, followed by long-term measures to remove systemic discrimination. At the same time, the FBI is also investigating whether the police have denied Floyd his civil rights?

Earlier on Tuesday, a lawyer for Floyd's family told the body again that his death was due to cardiac arrest as the police amputated his neck. Let us know that after the death of black man George Floyd in America, violent protests are continuing against the police department. Many big cities of the country are burning in the fire of violence and thousands of people have been detained.

People are on the streets and accused of discrimination against the murder of African-American man George Floyd in the largest city of Minneapolis in the US state of Minnesota. A 46-year-old black man died in Minneapolis police custody. A white officer knelt on his neck during his arrest, making the black man think he could not breathe. The incident came to light in a video shared online.
