Two Minnesota ex-officers sentenced on federal charges in George Floyd case


Two former Minneapolis police officers were sentenced on Wednesday on federal charges stemming from the murder of George Floyd, the Black man who was killed when their colleague Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck during an arrest. At a hearing in St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson sentenced Tou Thao, 36, to 3-1/2 years. Earlier on Wednesday, he sentenced J. Alexander Kueng, 28, to three years, Andrew Luger, U.S. attorney for Minnesota, said in a statement. In February, Thao and Kueng, along with a third officer, Thomas Lane, were convicted by a federal jury of depriving Floyd of his civil rights and failing to come to his aid while Chauvin, a white man, choked him with a knee for nine minutes. Lane, 39, was sentenced last Thursday to 2-1/2 years in prison, while Chauvin was sentenced in February to 20 years and 5 months on federal charges related to Floyd's murder in May 2020. "Each had an individual duty and opportunity to intervene in the excessive force that resulted in the agonizing death of Mr. Floyd.

Ex-Minneapolis cops Kueng sentenced to 3 years, Thao 3 1/2 years for violating George Floyd's civil rights


A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced ex-Minneapolis police officer J. Alexander Kueng to three years in prison and former officer Tou Thao to three-and-a-half years on criminal civil rights charges related to the 2020 killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The sentencings bring to a close the Justice Department's criminal prosecution of the four ex-Minneapolis officers involved in Floyd's death. Earlier this month, Senior U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson gave Derek Chauvin a roughly 20-year sentence and sentenced Thomas Lane to two-and-a-half years. Lane, Thao and Kueng were each convicted in February after a 21-day jury trial. In all four cases, Magnuson opted to impose sentences below what federal prosecutors called for. The government wanted Magnuson to sentence Kueng and Thao below the 20-year term Chauvin received by significantly higher than the five to six years prosecutors argued that Lane should have received.

George Floyd's family, others see inequality in penalties for ex-cops


Three former Minneapolis police officers went before a federal judge during the last week to be sentenced for violating George Floyd's civil rights, and for each man, U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson handed out penalties well below what prosecutors sought and below federal guidelines. For some Floyd family members and activists, the penalties were too small and a bitter reminder of a justice system they say does not treat all people equally. "Once again, our judicial system favored people that should be locked up forever," Floyd's uncle, Selwyn Jones, said Thursday. The officers, he said, "contributed to the most brutal, heinous killing in most of our lifetimes." Chauvin, who pleaded guilty to a federal count in which he admitted willfully depriving Floyd of his right to be free from unreasonable seizure, was sentenced to 21 years for that and for an unrelated case involving a 14-year-old boy. Lane, Thao and Kueng were all convicted of depriving Floyd of medical care; Kueng and Thao were also convicted on a second count of failing to intervene. Paris Stevens, Floyd's cousin and a co-chair of the George Floyd Global Memorial, said she didn't think Lane, Kueng and Thao should have gotten the same penalty as Chauvin, but the sentences they got were too low. She said police officers should be punished more harshly because of the power they hold, and said the three men could have helped Floyd, but didn't.

Why is there a mural of George Floyd in Belgium?


The mural was completed in June 2020 by Belgian artist Julien Crevaels, known professionally as Novadead. It was created to condemn racist violence, according to the Brussels Times. “We were all shocked by the death of George Floyd, and with the city of Brussels we wanted to condemn racist violence, but also send out a message of peace, non-violence and hope,” Alderman of Culture Delphine Houba was quoted in the Brussels Times. “There have been demonstrations all over the world, including in Belgium. With its many nationalities, and as the capital of Europe, Brussels could not stay behind."

Tucker Carlson Claims Former Cop Derek Chauvin Didn't Murder George Floyd


Tucker Carlson is still trying to cast doubt on who is to blame for the 2020 murder of George Floyd. Former police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted and sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for state murder and manslaughter charges as well as 21 years in prison for violating Floyd’s civil rights. But on Tuesday night, the Fox News host falsely claimed Chauvin didn’t kill Floyd. “We all have to pretend he committed murder, which he didn’t. But whatever, we have to pretend it,” Carlson said. In 2020, Chauvin held a knee against Floyd’s neck for up to 9.5 minutes until he died. But on Tuesday night’s show, Carlson claimed Floyd haf suffered a fatal drug overdose, a lie the host has also peddled to his viewers in the past. The Hennepin County medical examiner ruled that Floyd's death was a homicide via “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.”

Gov. Greg Abbott appoints officer indicted for misconduct during George Floyd protests to police regulatory agency


Gov. Greg Abbott has appointed an indicted Austin police officer accused of using excessive force during 2020 protests to Texas’ regulatory law enforcement agency. Justin Berry was among 19 Austin police officers indicted earlier this year in the protests spurred by the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. Berry is charged with two counts of aggravated assault by a public servant. He also ran as a Republican for Texas House District 19 but lost in the primary runoff election this year. Abbott had endorsed Berry in the race, saying his “strong conservative values and experience stopping violent crime are exactly what we need in the Texas House.” Sara Mokuria, co-founder of Mothers Against Police Brutality, said Abbott’s decision to appoint Berry to TCOLE is dangerous, not based in public safety and flies in the face of “what’s in the best interests of Texans.”
