Three more former Minneapolis cops are still set to stand trial in the death of George Floyd — following Tuesday’s murder conviction for former police officer Derek Chauvin

The since-fired officers — J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao — are all free on $750,000 bail ahead of their trial, which is set to begin Aug. 23.

Lane, 38, who along with Kueng were the first two cops on scene, was positioned on Floyd’s legs, according to prosecutors.

During the arrest, Lane asked: “Should we roll him on his side?”

Chauvin responded: “No, staying put where we got him.”

Lane then said, “I am worried about excited delirium or whatever.” Chauvin replied, “That’s why we have him on his stomach.”

Thao, 35, the only cop of the four to not come into physical contact with Floyd, stood between onlookers and the three other officers, with a clear view of how Floyd was being restrained, prosecutors said.

At one point, Thao kept a witness back who had stepped off the curb “imploring Chauvin to get off of Mr. Floyd,” the complaint said.

They face charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter over the May 2020 death of Floyd. They face up to 40 years in prison on the top charge.

All three officers were involved in the fatal arrest, with two of them — Kueng and Lane — restraining Floyd along with Chauvin, according to prosecutors.

It was Kueng, Lane and Chauvin who forced Floyd to the ground after he balked at getting into the back of a squad car during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill.
Once Floyd was down, Kueng, 27, was kneeling on his back, positioned between Chauvin and Lane, according to prosecutors.
After Floyd became unresponsive, Kueng checked Floyd’s right wrist for a pulse. “I couldn’t find one,” Kueng said, according to the complaint.

‘Will Nancy investigate herself’, Trump blasts Pelosi over ‘highly partisan’ Jan. 6 committee

“Will Nancy investigate herself and those on Capitol Hill who didn’t want additional protection, including more police and National Guard, therefore being unprepared despite the large crowd of people that everyone knew was coming?”

Former President Donald Trump criticized Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Monday over her creation of a special committee to investigate the events surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“Nancy Pelosi is spending a great deal of time, effort, and money on the formulation of a Fake and highly partisan January 6 Committee to ask, ‘what happened?'” Trump said in a statement. “Will Nancy investigate herself and those on Capitol Hill who didn’t want additional protection, including more police and National Guard, therefore being unprepared despite the large crowd of people that everyone knew was coming?”

Trump’s statement came after Pelosi last week rejected two Republican House members, Reps. Jim Banks and Jim Jordan, both chosen by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to serve on the select committee.

Currently, the committee is comprised of nine members, seven Democrats and two Republicans, those being Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney and Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger.

In his statement Trump asked if Pelosi would “study the massive Voter Fraud that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election,” arguing that voter fraud caused the crowd to pour into the Capitol in the first place. He also asked Pelosi if the committee would investigate ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, which he said “played a role.”

Trump finally asked if Pelosi would reveal “who killed Ashli Babbitt?,” the unarmed woman who was shot and killed by a still yet to be named Capitol Police officer during the riot.

He also questioned why so many Jan. 6 rioters are still in jail while numerous Black Lives Matter-Antifa rioters did not pay the price for the “fire and carnage and death that took place in Democrat-run cities” across the United States.
