8/22- Lawyer for Minneapolis cop claims George Floyd ‘killed himself’
The lawyer of one of the four disgraced cops charged with the murder of George Floyd says he will be arguing in court that it wasn’t their fault.
The knee-on-the-neck arrest of George Floyd had nothing to do with his death — because he actually “killed himself,” a lawyer for one of the four charged cops has claimed.
Earl Gray, the attorney for Thomas Lane, has already filed court papers trying to dismiss the fired officer’s charges, insisting the real cause of Floyd’s death was an overdose of the powerful opioid fentanyl.
Gray now claims it will help clear all of the fired cops — even Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis officer filmed with his knee on Floyd’s neck for almost eight minutes as he begged, “I can’t breathe”.
