According to him, we are talking about at least 200 law enforcement officers and firefighters, and the total amount of payments will be $35 million. It is indicated that most of them left because of injuries or post-traumatic stress received during the riots. Payments will be made over several years.

According to the TV channel, after the mass layoffs in the city, a surge in crime was recorded. Floyd died after police officer Derek Chauvin used a hard chokehold during his arrest in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020. After his death, mass protests were held in the United States, accompanied by riots. To restore calm, the National Guard was involved in local law enforcement agencies. About 40 cities, including Washington and New York, were under curfew. The Minneapolis authorities paid $27 million in compensation during the settlement of a civil lawsuit by Floyd’s relatives.
