Protesters march through downtown Vancouver over Floyd's killing

"We now have the audio from the police body cam and we hear where one officer says he doesn't have a pulse, maybe we should turn him on his side", Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Floyd's family, said Sunday in an interview on CBS News" "Face the Nation".

The independent autopsy's findings came after the Hennepin County Medical Examiner found "no physical findings" to 'support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation, ' according to a criminal complaint released by the Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Friday.

On the surface, the independent autopsy would seem to bolster the prosecution's case against Derek Chauvin, the police officer who knelt on Floyd's neck for several minutes before he died last week.

American Jewish Committee Los Angeles (AJCLA) said in a May 30 Facebook post, "As some protesters in Los Angeles today have resorted to violence, vandalism, and destruction of property, we join with Mayor Eric Garcetti in appealing for calm across our city".

Baden and Wilson said that it is likely that Floyd died at the scene. A reporter said police also flattened the tires.

The family attorney noted that Chauvin applied pressure to Floyd's neck for "at least eight minutes", despite witnesses and a paramedic expressing concern for the 46-year-old's safety.

Lieutenant Bob Kroll, the president of the Minneapolis police union, wrote to its members in the wake of the arrest of Derek Chauvin on charges of murdering Floyd and the firing of three other officers involved in the incident. "So if I'm not over here. blowing up stuff, if I'm not over here messing up my community, then what are you all doing?" On Monday, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, a Democrat, ordered a state investigation after a man was fatally shot during an overnight confrontation with Louisville police and the National Guard.

But later Monday, protesters gathered in front of police headquarters, where officers fired tear gas. I needed to see the people in that community - how much love they had for their community and their people and how much pain this has caused.

More than 4,000 people were arrested across the country during weekend demonstrations, according to The Associated Press.

Chauvin, the officer who held down Floyd, and three other officers who were present and did not intervene, were fired last Tuesday. The Floyd family deserves swift, fair and genuine justice, which includes investigating and prosecuting all police officers who participated in his killing. "But as we recite the mourner's Kaddish for them all, we say now, again: We will not sit idly by".
