The clashes between police and protesters came as Floyd’s devastated family broke their silence over his death and said the firing of the four officers involved was just ‘a start’ and that the cops ‘murdered our cousin’.
Two of Floyd’s cousins spoke of their heartache to TMX.news, while the family’s lawyer called for white cop Derek Chauvin to be charged with murder and the other three officers involved charged as murder accomplices.
Shareeduh Tate, one of Floyd’s cousins, told how she watched the horrific footage on TV before realizing it was her ‘baby cousin’.
‘I actually saw it before knowing it was my cousin – I saw it on Gayle King,’ said Shareeduh Tate.

‘And I remember thinking how devastating this would be for the family who have lost their family member like this… then about five minutes after that I got a phone call saying that it was my cousin.’
She thanked the bystanders who were heard in the footage urging the police to stop what they were doing and warning them that they were killing Floyd.
‘I can’t thank them enough. We always see these kinds of things take place and we always wonder what we would do in that position and we’re so grateful… and even more so grateful for the person who was there with a camera to capture it as so many times there is not a witness around and it’s questionable as to what has happened,’ Tate said.
Floyd’s other cousin Tera Brown called the footage ‘unbelievable’.
‘It’s unbelievable to see someone suffering in the way that he did,’ she said. Adding, ‘And to have so many people around asking for them to basically allow him to live.’

Jacob Frey 1Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey [photo], addressed the incident in a press briefing on Tuesday morning, said the officers involved ‘failed in the most basic human sense’. Shortly after their dismissal was confirmed 
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced Tuesday that four officers are now ‘former employees’ of the force.
‘We know there are inherent dangers in the profession of policing but the vast majority of the work we do never require the use of force,’ Arradondo said.
The names of the four fired cops have not been released, however two officers seen in the video were identified by Floyd’s family’s lawyer as Chauvin and Tou Thao.
The two were filmed in a video taken by a bystander on Monday which showed Floyd struggling to breathe on the ground as a white cop knelt on his neck for several minutes.
Floyd, who was arrested on suspicion of forgery on Monday night, was heard repeatedly telling the three officers pinning down his prone body, that he could not breathe, as he lay on the ground next to the tire of a squad car.

Officer Derek Chauvin has been identified as the officer kneeling on his neck. A fourth officer, identified as Tou Thao,
can be seen standing idly by.
