Sheryl Wood, former federal prosecutor and principal at The Wood Law Firm joins Two Way Talk to provide a legal analysis of the federal trial for three officers charged in George Floyd’s murder.

Minneapolis police officers J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao were at the scene on May 25, 2020, as former officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck for 9 1/2 minutes. Prosecutors say the officers did nothing to stop Chauvin or to help Floyd.
