OFFICERS WHO WATCHED FLOYD DIE CHARGED


Minneapolis authorities yesterday charged three former police officers who stood by as Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. Chauvin’s charge was increased to second-degree murder, and his colleagues stand accused of aiding and abetting the killing. Mostly peaceful protests continued throughout the nation Wednesday, amid calls from conservatives to respond aggressively against demonstrators President Donald Trump described as “killers,” “thugs” and “hoodlums.” Meanwhile, sympathetic protests continued around the world. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, asked about Trump’s use of force, went viral with a 21-second pause before expressing “horror and consternation.”SOURCES:  WASHINGTON POST  /   NYT  /  BBC   /  REUTERS
