There have been several reactions on the arrest of the Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin who was charged with Third Degree murder instead of First Degree Murder.
Derek Chauvin, who was fired on Tuesday along with three other officers involved in the detainment of Floyd, was taken into custody Friday and faces charges of 3rd-degree murder and manslaughter, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced.
Derek was also allegedly being held in protective custody after legitimate threats on his life were made.
Social media users are calling for First Degree murder charge instead of a Third Degree Murder on The Minneapolis officer.
- 1st degree: premeditated/planned
- 2nd degree: intentional but not planned
- 3rd degree: an “accident”
