Chauvin prosecutor tells judge that Floyd was tortured

A prosecutor told the judge at Derek Chauvin’s sentencing Friday that the former Minneapolis police officer should face a maximum sentence because he violated an officer’s most important job by failing to provide for George Floyd’s care while trying to take him into custody. “This case was about Derek Chauvin disregarding all that training he received and assaulting Mr. Floyd until he suffocated to death,” prosecutor Matthew Frank said.He told Judge Peter Cahill that “torture is the right word” to describe how Floyd died.”And it’s a real simple mantra, easy thing to remember,” Frank said. “You’re going to take custody of somebody, you have to provide care. You have to do it in a caring way. You can’t simply disregard their care. Mr. Chauvin abused his position of trust and authority as a police officer by doing just that, just disregarding all his training.”

Floyd’s brother: ‘My family has been given a life sentence’

My family has been given a life sentence. We will never be able to get George back: George Floyd’s brother Philonise Floyd

On behalf of me and my family, we seek the maximum penalty. We don’t want to see no more slaps on the wrist. We’ve been through that already. This this is the case everybody knows about. So she’s going to find out and I’m gonna have to explain that to her. And I think that’s, to me, harder than even just standing here. That I have to talk to my daughter and tell her, you know, about her niece, about her uncle, about the situation. That’s basically reliving it all over again, years down the line
