(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 6/2/2020) – Today, a CAIR-Minnesota, Communities United Against Police Brutality, and a coalition of of Minnesota civil rights groups called for the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training (“MN POST Board”) to revoke the peace officer licenses of the Minneapolis law enforcement officers Derek Chauvin, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane, who were involved in the death of George Floyd.

According to the official complaint, Kueng held Floyd’s back while Lane held down his legs as Chauvin placed his knee on Floyd’s neck. As Floyd repeatedly told the officers “I can’t breathe,” Kueng, Lane and Thao, according to prosecutors, “stayed in their positions.” Chauvin had his knee on Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in total, according to the complaint. For nearly 3 minutes of that time, Floyd was non-responsive.
