Ex-Cop in Floyd Case Out of Jail

Ex-Cop in Floyd Case Out of Jail

(RightWing.org) – On June 3, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D) charged all of the former police officers allegedly involved in George Floyd’s death. It seemed like the riots and protests around the country settled down (for the most part) afterward. Now it seems US cities might have to brace themselves for more.

Thomas Lane, one of those former Minneapolis cops, walked out of jail on Wednesday. The accused was able to post his $750,000 bail.

Lane is one of the three officers who can be seen aiding Floyd’s alleged killer in the video that caught the incident. Ellison charged him with aiding and abetting manslaughter and second-degree murder. So far, he’s the only one who’s been able to to post bail.

He won’t be walking around scot-free while awaiting trial. Lane won’t be able to carry a gun, continue a career in law enforcement and he’s being monitored. Protests are continuing across the country and so far, cities are relatively calm. Let’s hope this latest news doesn’t cause more problems as Americans struggle to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent riots.
