Drake reacts to comments made by attorney for ex-officer Thomas Lane
Drake continues to weigh in on the legal case surrounding the ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chavin and the other officers charged in the senseless murder of George Floyd. All four were terminated from the Minneapolis Police Department.
Earl Gray, the attorney for Thomas Lane, one of the other three disgraced officers charged, recently appeared CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time to discuss the highly publicized murder. During the interview with Chris Cuomo, Gray ridiculously suggested bystanders should have intervened to save Mr. Floyd’s life.
“If the public is there and they’re so in an uproar about this, they didn’t intercede either.”
Cuomo rightfully responded by suggesting the attorney was asking “too much of civilians” and not enough from his client.
Drake was tuning in and was compelled to comment on the exchange. He took a picture of a TV with the interview playing and added the words:
“Thomas Lane lawyer struggling through an ATTEMPT to justify this situation live on television…can’t even decide how to defend his client this shit is foul to watch.”
On June 3, Drake used IG Story to comment on the need for all three artists to be charged in Floyd’s murder, not just Chauvin:
“The decision on the other officers will be announced this afternoon and it BETTER reflect the cries and outrage of the people. This is an opportunity for those in power who are used to protecting each other to show the nation they are being heard…pivotal moment in history is upon us and I am praying for harsh JUSTICE…can’t say I’m not nervous though.”
