HeadlineFeb 18, 2022

In Saint Paul, Minnesota, the federal civil rights trial of three former police officers involved in George Floyd’s murder continued Thursday. During cross-examination, former Minneapolis officer J. Alexander Kueng admitted he laughed at a joke made by Derek Chauvin, the senior officer at the scene, as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. Kueng also acknowledged that he could have performed CPR on Floyd after he became unresponsive, but failed to do so.
