4 Minneapolis police officers have been fired from their job for their involvement in the killing of a black man, George Floyd.
In a video that went viral on social media, the man was seen held down with a knee as he protested that he couldn’t breathe, officials said Tuesday.
“I support your decisions, one hundred percent,” said Mayor Jacob Frey, in a statement about police Chief Medaria Arradondo’s firing of the officers. “It is the right decision for our city. The right decision for our community, it is the right decision for the Minneapolis Police Department.”
