Floyd's death sparked anger around the country and ignited days of protests. Derek Chauvin, the suspect who appears to kneel his full weight on George Floyd's neck while he begged for help, gasping that he couldn't breathe, was charged with 3rd Degree Murder and Manslaughter.

The three other officers on the scene and involved in the murder were also fired. No charges have been filed against them yet.
