A mostly white jury was selected in the case for Thomas Lane, J. Kueng and Tou Thao, the three ex-Minneapolis cops who, along with Derek Chauvin, were involved in George Floyd's death. Judge Paul Magnuson said, “There is absolutely nothing about the subject of religion, race or ethnicity that’s involved in this case.”
