The lawyer who represents the family of George Floyd told CBS News he wants the Minneapolis police officer who they believe is responsible for Floyd’s death should have his charges upgraded from third-degree murder to first-degree murder.

Attorney Benjamin Crump said Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer, was clearly responsible for Floyd’s death after kneeling on his neck. 

“We think that he had intent based on, not the one minute, two minute, but over eight minutes, almost nine minutes he kept his knee in a man’s neck that was begging and pleading for breath,” Crump said to CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “George Floyd died because of the knee being shoved into his neck, and he could not breathe.”

Chauvin was fired last Tuesday and arrested Friday on charges of third-degree murder and manslaughter.

Former congressman Trey Gowdy said to Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.” that it “took too long” to charge Chauvin.

“It took too long. You know, murder one in Minnesota is premeditation with an intent to kill murder two is an intent to kill without the premeditation. Murder three is the doing of an inherently dangerous thing that results in someone’s death,” Gowdy said.

 “So my question for the prosecutors and cops in Minnesota, Maria, is if you have a man with your knee on his neck and he is telling you, ‘you’re killing me, I cannot breathe. You’re killing me.’ How long’s it take for premeditation to manifest itself?”
