"First and foremost, I send my heartfelt condolences to Mr. Floyd's family who had to watch as their loved one was murdered on camera.
For Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman to use my office to justify his inaction on the tragic and public killing of George Floyd is shameful. Saying that there was a "rush to charge, a rush to justice" in the Freddie Gray case is demonstrably false. I stand by the decision I made 12 days after Freddie Gray was killed. I didn't have video footage of a murder -- evidence any prosecutor would dream of. Mr. Freeman needs to own his decisions and be courageous enough to decide whether or not to prosecute and pursue justice for the murder of George Floyd." - State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby
