Jay continued by saying that he demands that all four officers involved in George's death be prosecuted.

The Trump administration will not invoke federal authority over the National Guard for now, National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien said on Sunday as protests flared in multiple US cities following the death of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis in police custody last week.

Mr. Floyd's death, which came after ex-Officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for almost nine minutes, touched off peaceful protests that quickly morphed into violent rioting and spread beyond Minneapolis nationwide.

"This is justice. We're going on justice and that's what we're going to do", he said. George is all of our families and humanity.

On the same day, Governor Walz spoke about Jay-Z's phone call during a press conference. "He was so incredibly human".

"I prevail 0n every politician, prosecutor, and officer in the country to have the courage to do what is right, look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters, and mothers in pain and look at yourselves". "His words to me, I want them to be confidential, but to summarize what it was: 'Justice needs to be served, here". "Not worldwide performer, but dad stressing to me that justice needs to be served. How Minnesota handles this is going to have an impact across the country, and I think that's what his impressions were".

Jeremiah Ellison, son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a Minneapolis city council member, declared Sunday his support for antifa, the secretive left-wing anarchist group accused of driving the violent protests sweeping the nation. "I am not going to create a situation where people can say this was a rush to judgment". "After our very earnest conversation, thank you to Governor Walz for doing what's right and calling in Attorney General Keith Ellison to take over the George Floyd case", the star wrote in the message.

Minnesota's state attorney general said on Sunday he will lead the prosecution of the case involving the killing of George Floyd, the unarmed African-American man who died after a policeman knelt on his neck as he groaned "I can't breathe". "It wasn't Jay-Z worldwide celebrity, it was a dad and quite honestly a black man with visceral pain that he knew".
