Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Minneapolis mayor says George Floyd would still be alive ‘if he were white’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said in a televised interview Thursday that he believes George Floyd would “be alive today if he were white,” calling for the white cop who put his knee on the 46-year-old’s neck to be charged in his death.

“I’m not a prosecutor, but let me be clear, the arresting officer killed someone,” Frey added on “CBS This Morning.”

On Wednesday, the mayor called for now-fired cop Derek Chauvin to be arrested and charged by county prosecutors.

“I’ve wrestled with, more than anything else over the last 36 hours, one fundamental question,” Frey told reporters. “Why is the man who killed George Floyd not in jail?”

“And I cannot come up with a good answer to that question. And so I’m calling on Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to act on the evidence before him. I’m calling on him to charge the arresting officer in this case,” Frey said.
