Ex-Minneapolis officers charged in George Floyd's killing get tentative trial date in March

Source: Washington Post

MINNEAPOLIS —A judge tentatively scheduled a March trial date for the four former Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd's death, though considerable uncertainty remains about how the case will unfold following a hearing here Monday afternoon.

Three of the four ex-officers appeared in person in a Hennepin County courtroom Monday for a joint hearing, with the one facing the most serious charges — Derek Chauvin, who was filmed driving his knee into Floyd’s neck — appeared remotely from the state prison where he is being held.

It is unclear whether some or all of the officers will be tried together. While prosecutors seem to be pushing for a consolidated trial, defense attorneys are instead expected to push for separate prosecutions.

Chauvin was charged with second-degree murder, while the other three — Tou Thao, Thomas K. Lane and J. Alexander Kueng — were charged with aiding and abetting Chauvin.

1. Way more than George Floyd got.

George Floyd got a cop kneeling on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. He was dead afterwords.

George Floyd never got the privileges these cops have had their entire lives. They continue to have these privileges even today.
