George Floyd - Ex-Police Officers Involved In His Killing Plead Not Guilty To Federal Charges


The fight for justice for George Floyd continues.

On Tuesday, (Sept. 14th) former officers, Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, J. Keung, and Tou Thao, who were involved in the killing of George Floyd in May 2020, pleaded not guilty to federal charges.

Back in May of this year, a federal grand jury indicted the men for violating Floyd's constitutional and civil rights. Due to this, all four men were charged with failing to administer first aid, and Chauvin, Keung, and Thao were charged with violating Floyd's right to be free from unreasonable seizure and excessive force.

Derek Chauvin, who knelt on George Floyd's neck for nearly eight minutes and 46 seconds, was sentenced to 22 and a half years in a Minnesota state prison in June 2021 after being convicted of second-degree murder and manslaughter, as well as third-degree murder.



George Floyd's death sparked national outcry and worldwide protest against police brutality and racial justice. Many celebrities like Dave Chappelle, who developed a special called '8:46,' joined the fight using their platforms to bring awareness to the issue and the Black Live Matter Movement.



The other officers involved are also facing state charges for aiding and abetting murder and manslaughter due to Keung holding down Floyd's back, Lane holding his legs, and Thao blocking bystanders. Their trial will not take place until March 2022.
