Gov. Tim Walz said he has an expectation that "swift" justice will be carried against the police officers involved in the death of George Floyd.
"It is my expectation that justice for the officers involved in this will be swift, that it will come in a timely manner, that it will be fair. That is what we've asked for. I have been in contact with Hennepin County attorney, and I am confident that those very things I just said will happen," Walz said.
All four officers involved in the death of George Floyd have invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told CNN following a news conference Thursday afternoon.
Freeman said he looking at the Freddie Gray case for guidance in the Floyd case and wants to have the full picture of the case before moving forward.
"So, Minnesotans, your pain is real. The chapter that's been written this week is one of our darkest chapters," Walz said.
