J. Alexander Kueng: 5 Things About Officer Convicted Of Violating George Floyd’s Civil Rights

J. Alexander Kueng: 5 Things About Officer Convicted Of Violating George Floyd’s
Civil Rights

J. Alexander Kueng, one of the four Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s killing, was convicted of violating Floyd’s civil rights on Feb. 24.

UPDATE 2/24/22 9:09 pm EST: J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao were convicted of violating George Floyd’s civil rights when he failed to secure medical attention for Floyd when Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck, resulting in his death. Kueng and Thao were also charged with failing to intervene as Chauvin harmed Floyd. His trial for second-degree murder commences in June.

UPDATE 6/5 3:13pm EST: Two days after Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter, the Minneapolis has banned the use of chokeholds by police. The agreement, which comes in conjunction with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, means that any officer is required to immediately report the use of neck restraint or chokehold to their commander or their commander’s superiors.

If an officer sees a colleague try to chokehold anyone, they must intervene verbally, or physically if necessary. Failure to do so means they could face punishment as severe as the officer committing the prohibited action, according to the Associated Press. Additionally, the police chief or a deputy chief must authorize any use of chemical agents, rubber bullets, flash-bangs, batons, and marking rounds.

UPDATE 6/4 3:20pm EST: A judge set bail at $1,000,000 apiece for Kueng along with Thomas Lane and Tou Thou on Thursday, June 4, while they made their first appearance in court. Derek Chauvin, who has been charged with 2nd degree murder in the death of George Floyd, has his set at $500,000.

Former Minneapolis Police Department officer J. Alexander Kueng was charged on June 3 with “aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter” over his involvement in the May 25 death of George Floyd. This comes days after Derek Chauvin, one of the other three MPD officers fired over George’s killing, was charged with third-degree murder and one count of manslaughter. Those counts were elevated to second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree murder are punishable by up to 40 years in prison. Manslaughter and aiding and abetting manslaughter are punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

“We’re here today because George Floyd is not here. He should be here. He should be alive but he’s not,” said Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. “Today I filed an amended complaint that charges former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin with murder in the second degree for the death of George Floyd. I believe the evidence available to us now supports the stronger charge of second-degree murder.”

“Second, today arrest warrants were issued for former Minneapolis police officers J. A. King, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao,” continued Ellison. “Finally, I’d like to announce that today Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman and I have filed a complaint that charges police officer King, Lane, and Thao with aiding and abetting murder in the second degree, a felony offense. I strongly believe that these developments are in the interests of justice for Mr. Floyd, his family, our community and our state.”

In the now viral-video of George’s death, Chauvin is the officer pinning George to the ground with his knee on the back of the black man’s neck. Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng allegedly held George’s legs and back, respectively, while Tou Thao instructed onlookers to “get back on the sidewalk. George Floyd’s death sparked a massive amount of outrage, which was followed by numerous protests against systemic racial oppression and police brutality. Though Derek Chauvin was indicted over Floyd’s death, millions demanded that the other three face charges. Whether or not these officers will face jail time over this incident remains to be seen. In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about J. Alexander Kueng.

Hennepin County Attorney’s Office

1. He was one of the two officers who first confronted George Floyd.

It was Officers Lane and Kueng who approached George Floyd after someone at the Cup Foods market reported a man buying merchandise with a counterfeit $20 bill, according to a criminal complaint filed by the Hennepin County Attorney. According to the document, obtained by HollywoodLife, the cops approached George’s car, with Lane talking with George while Kueng spoke with front seat passenger. Officer Lane ordered George out of the vehicle, put his hands on him, and handcuffed him. Officers Chauvin and Thao arrived soon afterward. The four attempted to get Floyd into a cop car, while George struggled and said he was claustrophobic.

Chauvin ultimately pinned George to the ground, a knee pressed into his neck. Chauvin kept the knee there for almost nine minutes. Around 8:24 pm, George stopped moving. J. Alexander Kueng checked for a pulse as an ambulance arrived. George Floyd was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

2. The officer had only received his law enforcement license last summer.

Like Officer Lane, J. Alexander Kueng was a relative rookie to the MPD. He attained his law enforcement license last August, the same time that Lane received his license.

3. He had no previous complaints against him.

Unlike officer Tou Thao, who was the subject of a 2017 lawsuit over an alleged police brutality incident in 2014 (and who also had six police conduct complaints against him at the time of his arrest), J. Alexander Kueng had no complaints against his record before his firing.

4. His family isn’t talking.

Though a relative of Officer Lane defended him to the Star Tribune (“He doesn’t have a bad bone in his body”), a relative of Kueng wasn’t in the mood to chat. “There’s no way to comment,” a local relative said the publication, “so don’t start.”

5. He may be headed for a long time behind bars.

When Derek Chauvin was first charged with third-degree murder, Certified Criminal Trial Specialist, Bruce Rivers told HollywoodLife that though the maximum sentence is 25 years, “first-time offenders usually don’t get the statutory maximum. The legal expert told HollywoodLife that he thought Derek would “likely get somewhere along the guidelines which are 128 to 180 months with the mid-range of 150 months.”

Look at Megan Fox: Fabulous 1970s Outfit!

Megan Fox is fabulous. She just posted several images of herself on Instagram wearing a costume with a 1970s theme that she appears to be about to burst out of.

Megan Fox – Instagram

Megan Fox is back with another sexy and colorful dress and a caption that goes with it, proving that she has a great sense of humor. The actress shared a number of images of herself wearing a very obvious 1970s ensemble on her Instagram feed. She is wearing a shirt that is quite tight on her, trendy slacks that barely contain her legs, and this combination normally garners her a ton of attention on social media.

The only thing that people notice about Megan Fox, according to her amusing caption, is how brilliant she is, which is ironic given that she looks like she’s about to burst out of her clothing. Apart from her attractive clothing, her cleverness in delivering such a clever caption was unquestionably what caught our attention right immediately. The aforementioned post has received almost 2.1 million likes and 7,000 comments, demonstrating how popular Fox’s intelligence and attire were.

Megan Fox is currently as busy as ever, with the release of three new films, despite almost bursting out of her own clothes. In her debut film, Johnny & Clyde, a parody of Bonnie & Clyde, Fox plays a serial killer who has fallen in love with her accomplice in crime. Although the movie is finished, a release date has not yet been set.

The Expendables 4, the concluding installment in Sylvester Stallone’s enduring action star ensemble series, has also wrapped up filming for Megan Fox’s part. Along with many others, Fox joins Stallone, Jason Statham, 50 Cent, Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Randy Couture, and Andy Garcia. Although we are unsure of the exact release date because the film is still in post-production, we believe it will be a summer blockbuster. The movie has a 2023 release date window.

Following those two more mature films, Megan Fox will shift her focus to a family-friendly project by providing the voice of the animated movie Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin. The family-friendly film has quite a large cast, including Fox, Kate Winslet, Elliot Page, and Gerard Butler, even though it may not be on everyone’s radar. Also scheduled for release in 2023 is this film.

No matter what she wears and shares on social media, fabulous Megan Fox always grabs attention. She also frequently makes news with her fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly. In all honesty, we applaud her for always appearing to be able to bear the spotlight with dignity because we know she must deal with lots of detractors on a regular basis, even if she may not give them the attention they need.

Megan Fox has an impressive 20.6 million Instagram followers, which may be due to the fact that she consistently shares pictures of herself wearing stylish and attractive attire or because her captions are pretty funny. In any case, she looks stunning as usual, despite the fact that the gown she is wearing above appears to be about to come undone.
