Entornointeligente.com / A federal grand jury in Minneapolis has indicted four ex-police officers involved in the arrest and death of George Floyd on charges they violated his civil rights while detaining him last year. The three-count indictment names Derek Chauvin, Tou Thao, Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane as defendants. They are charged with depriving Floyd of his constitutional right which includes his right to not have his medical needs ignored. The indictment says the defendants saw George Floyd lying on the ground in clear need of medical care, and willfully failed to aid him. Chauvin, who is white, was captured on video kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes on May 25 last year as he and the three other officers arrested Floyd. Chauvin was found guilty of murder and manslaughter last month. Floyd’s death prompted protests against racism and police brutality last year in many cities across the United States and around the world.
