Prosecutors Become Witnesses In George Floyd Case

Several Prosecutors Disqualified From Participating In George Floyd Case

(Minneapolis, MN)  —  Several prosecutors are being disqualified from the case against the former Minneapolis cops accused of killing George Floyd.  A Minnesota judge said today Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman and three others should not have held a private meeting with the medical examiner over Floyd’s death.  The four are now considered witnesses and can be called to the stand during trial.  Defense attorneys attempted to argue for a change of venue citing the publicity of Floyd’s death on Memorial Day, but no decision has been made.  Protesters also gathered outside the Hennepin County Family Justice Center calling for the officers to be convicted and thrown in jail.  They also wore masks and laid on the ground for almost nine minutes, the same amount of time a former officer is accused of putting his knee on Floyd’s neck.
