FTA: "Earl Gray, Lane's attorney, said his client was still in training and remained under supervision for months."

Lemon Zinger, Chamomile, and Sleepytime, the attorneys for the other defendants, did not respond to requests for comments on this article.

None of this is surprising.  The obvious defense here is going to be, "I didn't put my knee on anyone's neck."

And while that is true, by all accounts, I don't think that is what they are being charged with.  And they are going to do everything they can to make it appear that they were completely helpless to prevent what happened.

I'm quite sure that when those 4 were drinking their coffee that morning, they had no idea it would be the last day they would be able to do so as free men.  Every last one of them had the opportunity to NOT allow what happened to happen.  And the 3 that just watched are just as guilty as the murderer because they did nothing to stop the murder.

No sympathy at all.  None.

If only there had been a good guy with a gun to help!

Cities should think about putting together a group of good guys with gunsto help their citizens, should they be physically attacked.

/Bet if any one of those people in the crowd had lifted a finger to help Mr. Floyd, those 4 guys would have found their balls guns in their hands

I have no general qualms with them arguing their own incompetence.

I thought the expert witness already determined that it was the restraining and the guy on his back that actually killed him, not the neck.  I seem to remember that figured strongly into Chauvin's defense (all I did was kneel on his neck, I wasn't the guy who kneeled on his back).

FTFA: Attorneys for Lane and Kueng asked the judge to remove language from the indictment that says their clients had been police officers since December 2019...Gray said Lane was working his fourth shift without supervision when he encountered Floyd. Tom Plunkett, Kueng's attorney, said his client was on his third shift without supervision..."Common sense dictates that a law officer with four days on the job would be less apt to intervene," Gray argued.

Were Lane and Kueng both being paid by the state to be cops? Were they both wearing badges? Were they both carrying guns? Were they both wearing police uniforms?

Then f*ck you and your flaccid "But my client was only a cop for 4 days when George Floyd was murdered. It shouldn't count" bullsh*t. It's time to roast a few more guilty pigs.

I must have missed that little tidbit.  But that is a little like saying, "Yeah, the third bullet hit his heart and killed him, the first two missed his heart. So I can't be guilty."

I really couldn't help but think, "You guys killed a dude over twenty bucks and now you want some nuance?"

Depends on the juries. 

The jackbooted thugs who killed Thomas Kelly, Daniel Shaver, and Duncan Socrates Lemp. 

But no one cares, because they can't be used for political gains.

this "i was only a cop for 4 days" bs is for the birds.  you are an adult, had some authority and didn't intervene.  you get the soap on a rope just like the rest of them.

No sympathy, but two have a good chance at acquittal

They had no duty to stop the murder

IIRC two just stood by, no overt act.

In the end, I'm actually ok with that.  And here's why.

If we want them to be punished, then mission accomplished.  This has already cost them their careers.  They will never work as cops again.  I'm not even sure if they'll work at Home Depot or something.  I know if I were a hiring manager, I would not even consider hiring them.  They are poison.

Not to mention that the legal expenses for this must be astronomical.

So, they are getting their punishment.

Prison isn't about punishment, it is about rehab.  They need to go to prison so that they can learn to be productive members of society.

Not sure if serious.

If you are serious, I'm really sorry to inform you that that is probably the single biggest misconception about our prison system.  It has nothing to do with rahab.  And it won't as long as it remains a for-profit industry.

Also - if you are concerned about them ever repeating what happened on that day, I've already pointed out that they will never be cops again.  So, I seriously doubt we need to worry about this every happening again.

Very slight amount on my end. Two of them were been trained.... By Chauvin no less.  And their first week being trained at that.  While they should have known better, that is a tough place to be in as you can bet if it came to Chauvin's word against theirs they'd be blacklisted my Minneapolis police in any other case.

Normally I like unions. When it comes to unions like the one those officers are in though its a different story and the culture they help create and support is a large part in what causes this.

Alright, fine.  Tiny bit of sympathy.  Because you are right.  It wouldn't have occurred to them that they should intervene, even if it did look like he was being too rough.  That would have meant the end of their career that day either way.

In the end, they didn't know Floyd was going to die.  In their minds, it must have been something along the lines of, "That's the way this goes."  And they were probably just as shocked as everyone else that Floyd was dead at the end.

And here's the other thing - if this wasn't caught in its entirety on video, none of this would have happened.  There would have been no protests.  There would have been no outrage.  There would have been no murder charges.  All 4 of them would have been protected by the force and the union, and we would not have heard another word about it.
