The three former Minneapolis police officers, who failed to intervene when Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd, were convicted in his killing on Thursday.

A jury found Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng guilty of depriving George Floyd of his right to medical care.

Thao and Kueng faced an additional charge of failing to intervene and stop Chauvin from kneeling in Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes resulting in his death.

During closing arguments, U.S. assistant attorney Manda Sertich stated:

No one did a thing to help. 

A human being, someone’s son, father, friend, significant other, George Perry Floyd Jr. died a slow and torturous death … underneath their knees, handcuffed, unarmed, not resisting in broad daylight on a public street.

In 2021, Derek Chauvin was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. 

He was sentenced to more than 22 years in prison.
