Grand jury indicts four former cops on charges related to George Floyd case

The four former Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd were indicted by a federal grand jury, according to The Washington Times.

The indictment came on Friday for the officers who were involved in apprehending and detaining Floyd in the moments before his death. The three-count indictment was reportedly in the form of civil rights charges which alleged that the former officers used excessive force, conducted unreasonable seizures, and failed to provide medical care.

Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng were those named in the indictment and Chauvin was also the subject of a second indictment that posited he used excessive force during a 2017 arrest of a 14-year-old boy who was also reportedly restrained via the neck.

“Mr. Lane, Mr. Thao and Mr. Kueng appeared via video conference in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis,” the Times reported. “Chauvin did not appear in court on Friday.”

Chauvin’s conviction on state murder and manslaughter charges spawned an outbreak of rejoicing among many who believed that the officer discriminated against Floyd because of his race.

The now-infamous officer is currently awaiting sentencing in a maximum-security facility, according to the times, and the other three officers await trial that will likely take place in late August, but remain free on bond.

Floyd died after Chauvin restrained him with the officer’s knee on the detainee’s neck for roughly nine and a half minutes, however, Kueng and Lane also helped to restrain Floyd and bring him down to the pavement. It’s alleged that Kueng knelt on Floyd’s back while Lane pinned down his legs.

Floyd’s death caused an outbreak of protests and riots that caused the deaths of almost two dozen and the destruction of billions of dollars worth of property.

    1. What’s insand? Turtle eggs? Buried treasure? Pyramids in Egypt? Or an Oasis in the Sahara?

  2. Looking back , maybe we should have idolized Manson . We could’ve been ahead of our time , putting thugs on pedestals .

      1. Do you realize that if George Floyd would not resisted he would be alive today?? Criminals need to NOT RESIST the police period

        1. Beverly, that’s just to simple for the awoke to understand. They do not need a real reason to go nuts since they already are full blown crazy.

        2. Actually, he would still be dead. By his own admission, “I ate too many drugs”.
          Four times the lethal dose of fentanyl to kill a human in his system, as well as other drugs and alcohol. They should have just followed him around until he dropped dead, and call the coroner.

        3. Actually that is not true. George Floyd took a lethal dose of a drug and at that time NOTHING could have been done to save his life! The Police did nothing wrong, period! Even the Medical Examiner testified that Floyd was a dead man before the police arrived.

  3. George Floyd died from a lethal quantity of fentanyl and bad heart . The restraint was made to keep him down until the paramedics arrived. Perhaps keeping a knee on Floyd was not needed but he resisted mightily about and could not be forced into a squad car. Ergo, he was pinned prone on the ground with hands and feet fettered. should he have been allowed to flop around on the ground? I think if I were the arresting police I might have just let him do that until an ambulance arrived to pick him up.
    Floyd was a criminal, not an icon for the blacks to idolize.

    1. He was padding counterfeit bills at a convenience store and already overdosing on drugs. Career criminal. He was saying he couldn’t breathe several times before he was on the ground. He was overdosing before police arrived.

    2. Thank you Joseph. Everything to do with this farce of a court system is crap. The so called DA should be arrested and sentenced to life, plus cost of damages to each city, for obscuring evidence. Another disgrace to American beliefs. Just what Obama had planned all along with his divide and blame it on racism ideals.

    3. What ever happened to respecting the words ! Stop resisting , or its going to get painful! Stop or I will shoot . We all learned as kids conquences for our actions!! It’s all a excuse for the BLM to destroy and vandlize property to start a movement! It has no cause for Floyd,
      just another excuse for the actions and true colors!!

      1. Whatever happened to MORALS??? Don’t do the crime and you won’t have to worry about cops putting their knee on your neck. If you want to be treated with respect, act respectful, don’t wear clothes exposing your butt, and acting like you’re up to no good, quit loitering etc. If you act in a way to attract attention, guess what, you’re going to get it, including the COPS attention. People who go LOOKING for trouble, usually FIND it.

      2. please everyone pull up the chris rock video on utube.it’s called rock on police i think!anyways everything he says is spot on and hilarious too!too bad many blacks have no interest in viewing it!

    4. I agree!!! If only he had complied, he would still be alive. Unfortunately he was also high on drugs. Not sure but he sure looked high in the Department store while standing in line. People should just obey LAW AND ORDER. Don’t they realize they just make things more difficult in the long run? Their demands does not help, just makes matters worse.

    5. I’m on Federal Grand Jury Duty. One of my fellow jurors says she can’t be on duty anymore because she can’t take seeing her fellow blacks always in trouble and being indicted. Well, it’s not OUR fault that they are committing all the crimes and being caught because they haven’t learned to not do this stuff where all the cameras are. They commit a crime, they VIDEO TAPE it, then they plaster it on the INTERNET in hopes it goes VIRAL. Then they wonder why they got caught. George Floyd was a CAREER criminal who died while committing yet ANOTHER crime, while high on ILLEGAL drugs no less. Should he have died the way he did, NO, but who was ultimately responsible, FLOYD!!!

  4. Biden and all his cronies are working real hard on their dream of turning the United States into a Banana Republic,

  5. Sir should Christians and jews wake up the Kenite dems want the 6th trump to should saying all Kenities rule U.S.A. , look at U.S.A. fed state etc leaders butt kissing crime of their bros????

  6. Joseph Moore you are so right. George is dead why go after other cops they got their fall guy. They have destroyed city after city and caused so much harm. George is dead the officer holding him down may have saved many lives by doing that George. He was a criminal and a drug user with a wrap sheet as long as your arm who knows how many people he might have killed if left on the streets.

  7. This jerk was a druggy and if he would have listen to the cops he would be alive today. It makes me puke the way this felon is idolized.

  8. Let me see if I have this right. You pay police officers to do a job and keep the law, then take them to court when they do. This has nothing to do with race, but everything to do with right and wrong. But the pressure from the Democrats, who are looking to put a feather in their cap in front of the nation is all that matters. Something’s really wrong with that.

  9. Great another news story about a criminal that is being held up like a hero at the cost of convicting (trying to) some officers that were trying to detain a felon that was resisting… to all the stupid… when the police officer tells you to do something I HIGHLY ADVISE YOU TO JUST DO IT! IDIOTS!!!

  10. I told people how they should act when involved with the police, but my post was deleted. More censorship in action. Don’t you love it???!!!

    1. Been there, done that. Jesse. Obama had a plan to divide America. What better than to turn the people who keep voting for you, against the rest of the country. Their lives keep getting worse because of the Democrats, but racism is the new ilk in their lives.

  11. They run this parasite out of Houston for beating a pregnant woman while robbing her, now he’s a hero…

  12. They should be issuing federal indictments for: Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, the rest of the Bidens, the Clintons, especially Hillary for the murders in Benghazi (no we have not forgotten that, nor will we every) and all their other crimes, the democrats who for 4 years made unwarranted charges against President Trump, John Kerry, Adam Schiff and all the other low life traitors who have committed treason against our Country.

    1. I find it easier to just say, The WHOLE OBAMA Administration. I don’t care if Hillary serves only part of a day in prison. I want her to know that her LEGACY will be that of a convicted felon. And forget GITMO. I heard Obama turned it into a Muslim day camp. They should reinstate Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his tent city prison in the AZ heat. No cushy, white collar prison for THESE crooks and traitors.

  13. No matter how much they idolize Floyd it will not bring him out of hell where he belongs. He will pay for eternity for all the crap he did! It will not be overlooked by the Lord. Once to die and then the judgment!

  14. MORE dual justice system at work in America! The AUTOPSY REVEALED FLOYD DIED OF FENTYNAL OVER DOSE! NOT Asphyxiation or anything related to pressure on his neck! Nothing related to him being restrained WHILE RESISTING ARREST! MEANWHILE, based on several problems with the CHAUVIN CASE, he is in court to demand a retrial! SO LET’S NOT WAIT A MOMENT TO RUN ANOTHER BIASED TRIAL, WITH JURORS AFRAID THAT IF THEY DIDN’T VOTE APPROPRIATELY RIOTS, SUPPORTED BY WATERS AND BIDEN, WOULD TAKE PLACE! A JURY UNDER THREAT, VIDEO SHOWING FLOYD WAS NOT CHOKING, AND AN ARRESTED PERSON FIGHTING THE POLICE SO HARD IT TOOK THREE POLICE TO HOLD HIM DOWN! More mistrials being created, and EVERY MINNEAPOLIS COP IS LOOKING FOR A NEW EMPLOYER! I guess now the radicals feel RESISTING ARREST IS NOT A CRIME! Hope you like the CRIME RATES RISING AS FAST AS OUR INFLATION!

  15. I still don’t know how she is allowed to be a member of Congress. Don’t they have to take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution? As a Muslim, a practicing Muslim, she can not uphold the Constitution or any laws upholding the freedom of religion. And how can she defend the Constitution when she wants to defund (eliminate) the police? Based solely on just those 2 items she should immediately resign or be thrown out of Congress.

  16. You all are fools. A doctor doesn’t concern himself about someones moral values or habits when they come in to be treated. They do their job to treat the illness or injury. Police, by the way in Minnesota they were all democrat policeman as was the department, irrespective, they were allowed to get away with bad behavior endemic in this department. Floyd was unarmed I believe and irrespective of his bad history he has to be handled responsibly.
    Sitting on anyones neck for 9 minutes for any reason is wrong even if they survive. I’m as conservative as you get and I say it was inept corrupt policing. Now the officer does have a valid reason to have the judgement negated and a mistrial due to Congressman Waters mouth!! We should stand up for police when they do right and expect justice if they fail to do the right thing. We should have more police and higher standards. What really is needed is term limits for congress and impeachment of the corrupt politicians and we can start with Biden, Pelosi, Shift, Nadler, Schumer, Waters, Kerry, Whitmer, Newsome, Cuomo for starters, some which will be out but Whitmer, Cuomo and Newsome via their state should be for waste, fraud, and abuse of tax payers money and pandemic misconduct ethical violations, and manslaughter by Cuomo. What really needs to be of more concern is the infiltration of government with communists. I think it’d fraud when the so called president Alzheimer Biden is mentally incompetent and unelected officials like Obama and leftists like Sanders and AOC are making policy. They should be removed from congress immediately, militarily if possible. They are purging military and putting in left leaning incompetent officers in to try and destroy the safety and security of our nation with China, Russia, and Iran’s blessing.

  17. How can anyone be charged a 2nd time for a crime he has already been found guilty on. Isn’t that double jeopardy? I am ashamed of how the so called justice system has taken a turn (not for the better). Where are all the cries for the officers who have been murdered in the line of duty! It’s time to stop the hate and trying to divide this country because of the color of the skin! Stop playing politics with peoples lives! Wake up America!!! Can’t you see what is happening before our eyes? We are all Americans and need to come together, not as any political party but as Americans and ask the important questions! How did we get here, Who is trying to destroy our beloved country and why!!!! If we don’t. we are going to regret it. We need to turn off the news media who are puppets for the evil liberals who love to see uprisings. If they can control our minds, they will control everything. I believe we are smarter than this. I remember as some of you do that the threat was made in the 50’s that America would be taken over without a shot being fired and it’s happening from within. God help us!!!!

  18. I feel like politicians swayed the jury .Don’t think these men got a fair trial -when people were in I can’t breath shirts.Biden,Harris and Waters gave their opinions before a verdict was reached.

  19. I’ve made €6258 so far this week working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Heres what I’ve been doing…

  20. Feds need to arrest biden, harris and pelosi they are the bad guys in the world. Feds are cowards so they go after weak and let the bidens, soros and the rich people go free what happened to the honest people in this world wave a dollar at them and they would arrest their own mother. No heros left.

  21. We had better start standing up for our police while we still have people willing to do it and maybe do some threatening like antifa and BLM do to get Law & Order back in place
