The White House National Security Advisor on Sunday said it was a “rage” that three Minneapolis police officers who participated in the detention of George Floyd had not been charged with Derek Chuvvin.
“It’s an outrage. I would like to know where the investigation is going with those officials. What were they thinking? Putting aside first responders and police officers, I’m just like humans, ”Robert O’Brien He told ABC News “this week”.
“I can’t imagine they won’t be charged. I don’t want to foresee anything, but what we’ve seen is horrific and should have allowed it to happen … it shows the lack of humanity, ”he continued.
County prosecutors in Minnesota on Friday charged him with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in a video clip that showed him kneeling in Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes last Monday.
Like Chuvv, the three officers who helped Floyd’s arrest were fired.
But the trio – Do Tha, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane – not charged in Floyd’s death, who was unarmed and handcuffed during the encounter: “I can’t breathe.”
O’Brien questioned how Chuvin, who had filed 15 behavioral complaints in his 19 years with the department, was even in the police force as a result of the two protests.
“I tell you why that guy was in the police force – I told him he had a long record of bad behavior,” he said.
O’Brien said police like Chuvin “need to be rooted out”.
“There are a few bad apples out there – whether they are racists or they are badly trained or bad, they must be rooted out of law enforcement because 99.9 percent of our law enforcement officers are heroes, they do great things to protect the American people,” he said. .
However, he said he does not believe there is “legitimate racism” in law enforcement.
“I don’t think there is proper racism. I think 99.9 percent of our law enforcement officers are good Americans, ”O’Brien said In a separate interview On CNN’s “Union Position.”
