All Four Cops Now Charged in George Floyd Killing
That's not to say an American jury will convict them but all four Minneapolis police officers present at the killing of George Floyd will stand trial.
Derek Chauvin, the cop who held his knee to Floyd's neck well after his victim lost consciousness has his charge upped from 3rd degree to 2nd degree murder. That increases his jeopardy from 25 years to 40 years on conviction.
The other three, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane, are charged with aiding and abetting 2nd degree murder and aiding and abetting 2nd degree murder manslaughter with culpable negligence.
