Guilty on all counts. That’s the verdict in the federal civil rights trial stemming from George Floyd’s death. It took an all-white Minnesota jury two days to find the three former Minneapolis police officers guilty on all five counts in violating Floyd’s rights during his May 2020 death. Former Minneapolis officers Tou Thao and J Alexander Kueng were found guilty of failing to intervene and failing to render medical aid, while Thomas Lane was found guilty of failing to render medical aid to Floyd. Derek Chauvin already pleaded guilty to federal charges in Floyd’s death in December. As of now a state trial for Thao, Kueng and Lane is set for June–but that could change as a result of today’s guilty verdicts.
