Derek Chauvin will spend the next two decades in prison. Now, the cops who failed to stop him from murdering George Floyd will be there too.
When ex-Minneapolis police officer Tou Thao took the stand in court Tuesday, he testified that he was trained to use knees on suspects.
Paramedic Derek Smith testified Wednesday that none of three officers informed him that George Floyd wasn’t breathing and had no pulse.
“You’ll see and hear officer Chauvin call all of the shots,” one of the former officer’s attorneys said during opening statements.
Ex-police officers J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao are all facing life in prison after failing to intervene in George Floyd’s murder.
