Thomas is one of the four men charged in relation to George Floyd’s murder. He is facing years behind bars for aiding and abetting second-degree murder and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
On the show, the lawyer argued his client said his client was not a “violent person” and did everything right during George’s arrest. He said, "Particularly if they (public) had any knowledge of what police procedure is and how they (officers) should proceed on a felony arrest. Particularly when the individual they are arresting is under the influence of some kind of drug, which was clearly evident in this situation."
Drake wasn’t impressed with the lawyer writing, “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.”
