George Floyd’s murder: Two officers convicted for depriving him of his constitutional rights

The havoc over the George Floyd issue continues and appears to be taking a final course with everyone involved.

The last two officers, who were involved in the murder of the African-American man, have been sentenced.

Both will spend time in jail on charges of “depriving (George Floyd) of his constitutional rights.”

 

What was the sentence for Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng?
The U.S. Department of Justice announced that the two former Minneapolis police officers, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng will serve 42 months and 36 months in prison, respectively.

Both former officers were arrested last February on federal charges of deprivation of the victim’s constitutional rights.

The evidence of excessive and deliberate violence, coupled with what the world saw when ex-officer Derek Chauvin killed Floyd when he kneed him and wouldn’t let him breathe.

“George Floyd’s death could have been prevented”

Added to the testimony of the two, under the argument of trusting what Chauvin was doing, was the conviction for not trying to do anything to stop the ex-officer.

The four police officers involved in the tragic death of George Floyd have already been removed to federal court, sentenced to prison and found guilty for the crime committed,” said General Kristen Clarke of the Department of Justice.

“George Floyd’s death could have been prevented if these defendants had done their duty to intervene to stop the other officer’s use of deadly force,” the General added.
