ジョージ・フロイドの死: Former Minneapolis cops stood by as Chauvin 'slowly killed' man, 検察官は裁判で言う

ある弁護人は、ショーヴィンが電話したと反論した “すべてのショット” 現場の上級役員として, and criticized the Minneapolis Police Department for doing too little to train officers to intervene when a colleague should be stopped.

Former officers J. アレクサンダークエン, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are broadly charged with depriving Floyd of his civil rights while acting under government authority. Floyd died on May 25, 2020, after Chauvin pressed him to the ground with his knee on Floyd’s neck for 9 1/2 minutes while the 46-year-old Black man was facedown, handcuffed and gasping for air. Kueng knelt on Floyd’s back and Lane held down his legs. Thao kept bystanders from intervening in the videotaped killing that triggered worldwide protests, violence and a reexamination of racism and policing.

For second after second, minute after minute, these three CPR-trained defendants stood or knelt next to officer Chauvin as he slowly killed George Floyd right in front of them,” prosecutor Samantha Trepel told jurors during opening statements. “They chose not to protect George Floyd, the man they had handcuffed and placed in their custody.

You’ll see and hear officer Chauvin call all of the shots,” Plunkett said.
