Former Minneapolis police officers convicted on all charges in the killing of George Floyd.

A jury found Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao guilty of violating George Floyd’s civil rights. The three former Minneapolis police officers participated in Floyd’s arrest, while Derek Chauvin, the senior officer on site, pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes. The jury also convicted Thao and Kueng of failing to intervene with Chauvin, who was found guilty in April on state charges of murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s killing.
