All four of the officers had already been fired.

TMZ has officially reported that their mugshots are in.

At least three other officers participated in Floyd's arrest and restraint, but they all ignored the 46-year-old's pleas for help as he narrated his own death.

On Wednesday evening, activists in Athens, Greece started marching towards the US Embassy protesting against racism in solidarity with the American protesters over George Floyd's death. The stark images of men sworn to protect and serve, now looking like accused criminals, came hours after the three were arrested and charged with aiding and abetting the alleged second-degree murder of George Floyd.

The new charge can carry a sentence of up to 40 years, 15 years longer than the maximum sentence for third-degree murder, according to court documents.

Later, another officer expressed concern, asking if they should roll Floyd on his side.

The three other officers at the scene were charged for the first time with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Speaking alongside her little girl and heir legal team, Roxie demanded justice for Floyd who died in police custody in Minneapolis.

Rather, a final state autopsy released Wednesday says Mr Floyd's death was due to "cardiopulmonary arrest", which is the stopping of his heart.

'It's going to be a celebration of life, but it's also going to be a plea to America, and a plea for justice, that we don't let his death be in vain.

Floyd's death sparked mass demonstrations across the U.S. and other major cities around the globe.

In a post on the Linden Police Facebook page, the department stated, "We are aware of the protest planned on Wood Ave tomorrow".

He added that "constructing justice and fairness in our society" would be a "slow and hard work" ahead, urging leaders in government and all citizens "to begin rewriting the rules for a just society now".

What's new this night is that a state of emergency is not in effect, after expiring yesterday.

Floyd's death has become the latest flashpoint for long-simmering rage over police brutality against African-Americans, propelling the highly charged issue of racial bias in the USA criminal justice system to the top of the political agenda five months before the US presidential election on November 3.

He moved from Houston to Minneapolis in recent years in search of better job opportunities, Washington said.
