Trial of other police charged in Floyd’s death to be broadcast

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Derek Chauvin’s murder trial was the first Minnesota criminal trial to be broadcast live on television.

It won’t be the last. Some in the Minnesota legal system were apprehensive about allowing the live broadcast of Chauvin’s trial over the killing of George Floyd, but the video feed had no major problems and bolstered the public’s understanding of the trial.

Minnesota Public Radio reports that a spokesperson for Hennepin County court system said an order from Judge Peter Cahill to allow the live broadcast will still apply to the August trial of the other three former Minneapolis officers charged in Floyd’s death, Thomas Lane, J. Kueng, and Tou Thao.
