How the officers charged in George Floyd's death could get their jobs back
Shortly after four Minneapolis police officers were fired over the death of George Floyd, the president of the city's police union wrote a letter to his members signaling that he was working to restore the officers' jobs.
"They were fired without due process," wrote Lt. Bob Kroll, of the Minneapolis Police Federation.
Kroll's union has had great success in getting police officer terminations reversed — by appealing them to arbitrators.
Since 2006, eight Minneapolis police firings have been decided by arbitrators and all but two resulted in the officers getting their jobs back, according to an NBC News review of records from the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services.
One officer punched a handcuffed man in the face multiple times, breaking his nose.
