The officers who were responsible for George Floyd’s death will have to wait until June to find out their fate
The state says that “moving the start of this trial to June 2021 would reduce the public health risks associated with conducting the trial during the covid -19 pandemic.”
The state of Minnesota believes it’s going to be better for the public health after the vaccine is approved. The prosecutors also went on to say that moving the trial from March to June would reduce the likelihood that the trial will be disrupted by covid-19 cases among court staff lawyers, judges and witness

The policemen involved in the charges include Derek Chauvin with second degree murder and manslaughter, J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are each charged with aiding and abetting murder and manslaughter.
