Attorney For Cop in George Floyd's Death Says Public Should've Intervened

Earl Gray who is defending Thomas Lane one of the former Minneapolis officers involved in the killing of George Floyd (the officer who was kneeling on Floyd's legs) recently appeared on CNN alongside Chris Cuomo and decided that it would be a good idea to blame the public for what happened citing that they should have intervened.

"All these people say why didn't my client intercede well, if the public is there and they're so in an uproar about this, they didn't intercede either, and my client's down where he can't really see."

Chris Cuomo stopped Gray right in the middle of his statement firing back questioning a few things including how civilians would be responsible to stop what police are doing in the middle of an arrest as well as how Lane who was a foot or two away from Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck isn't at fault for not intervening.

"You're laying on a mans legs you got a fine view of whats going on with that man the other officer is literally a foot in front of you on that mans neck" he goes on "you have a duty to intervene" referring to his client Thomas Lane not stopping Derek Chauvin from kneeling on George Floyd's neck) "Don't you think that's asking a little much of civilians and a little too little of your client?"
