“The state is portraying Mr. Floyd as somebody he isn’t,” Gray said, explaining that the prosecution has painted Floyd as a law-abiding citizen, not someone who wouldn't comply immediately with police.

While the prosecution started a motion that would have kept the transcripts and footage of the 2019 incident from the public, on Thursday Cahill denied it, making the evidence available for public view, according to the Post.

Four officers are being charged in Floyd's death, which occurred on May 25 of this year. 

Derek Chauvin, the officer filmed placing his knee to Floyd's neck, is facing second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas K. Lane and Tou Thao, the three other officers that were present during the incident, are being charged with aiding and abetting, the Post reported.
