NYC George Floyd memorial service to be held Thursday in Cadman Plaza

Ever since the video of George Floyd's death circulated on the internet, he did make a change in the world.

Already, all four former officers who had direct connection with his death have been remanded in custody, each with a bail term of $1 million. A white police officer killed Floyd, a Black man, by pressing his knee onto Floyd's neck for around eight minutes.

"The remarks of the girl came after she appeared alongside her mother Roxie Washington on a USA television show, where the little angel Gianna said: 'I miss him... he played with me". "If there's a problem she's having and she needs her daddy, she does not have that anymore".

"They're not looking for just progress, they're looking for transformational change".

According to CBS News, club owner Maya Santamaria says she paid Chauvin, while he was off-duty as a police officer, to sit in his squad auto outside the club for 17 years.

The emotional lady said she wanted everyone to know that Gianna was denied the chance of ever seeing her father again and the late Floyd would never see her grow up and graduate school. "I'm here for my baby", she said. I'm gonna be here to wipe your tears.

"I can tell you I feel no joy in this, but I do feel a tremendous sense of duty and responsibility". Floyd might not be here but I'm here for her, I'm here to get justice.

Mr Floyd was in handcuffs when he died with his face pressed to the street.

Floyd's family and protesters have repeatedly demanded criminal charges against all four officers, as well as more severe charges for Chauvin who, a little over a week ago, pressed Floyd's neck to the ground with his knee for nearly nine minutes, despite protests from the victim and passerbys that he couldn't breathe.

The 19-year veteran was arrested by the state's bureau of criminal apprehension. "In fact, County Attorney Freedman is the only prosecutor in the state of Minnesota that has successfully convicted a police officer for murder".

The Minneapolis Police Department declined to confirm or comment on the additional charges against the fired officers.

"This is a significant step forward on the road to justice, and we are gratified that this important action was brought before George Floyd's body was laid to rest", Benjamin Crump, attorney for the Floyd family, said in a statement.

"Progress didn't keep George Floyd alive and progress didn't keep those people out of the streets", he added.

The official autopsy by the county medical examiner concluded that George Floyd's death was caused by cardiac arrest as police restrained him and compressed his neck.

On Wednesday afternoon, the charges against Chauvin were upgraded from third-degree murder to second-degree murder. It was shot after a press conference on Tuesday in which Floyd's family called for justice over his death.

The arrest of all of the officers involved has been a persistent demand of protesters who have taken to the streets of dozens of U.S. cities for the past nine days to condemn police brutality and demand racial justice.
