More information is trickling out.
There were four police on the scene when George "Big Floyd" Floyd was arrested.
Two of them were dealing with two additional people-of-interest. An early account claims that the original call involved people passing counterfeit, $20 bills.
In many states, when somebody dies during the commission of a felony or in the events leading up-to or immediately-after the felony, then all co-conspirators can face charges of First-Degree Murder.
Suppose you and two of your buddies rob a bank and then mow-down a granny during your get-away. Bam! Expect the charges to include three counts of First Degree Murder.
Or, if during the commission of the bank robbery, one of your co-conspirators is shot and killed by the bank guard. Same deal, the two surviving parties involved in the commission of the felony can expect to be charged with First-Degree Murder even if one of the survivors was patiently waiting in the car as the get-away driver...at least in many states.
So, here is the money question: Are either of the two co-conspirators associated with people of influence? Are either of the two co-conspirators related to the mayor or any city counsel members or congresspeople? Are they related to anybody in the media, local celebrities or race-hustlers? Does their involvement and possible exposure to First-Degree Murder trial cause anybody angst?
Inquiring minds want to know.
