Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was sentenced today to 22½ years in prison after being found guilty in the 2020 murder of George Floyd. (Story Here) Prior to the sentencing Derek Chauvin made a brief, and seemingly cryptic, statement.
Derek Chauvin lived in the same house for over a decade.
No-one in the neighborhood knew he was a police officer.
The immediate neighbors (7 years) didn’t know he was a cop.
Chauvin never once drove a police vehicle home.
No-one ever Chauvin in a police uniform.
In addition to being a police officer, Chauvin worked at a dance club as security.
Chauvin worked at the club for 14 years while also being a police officer.
George Floyd also worked at the club, also as security.
The club, El Nuevo Rodeo, had a sketchy ownership background.
Coincidentally El Nuevo Rodeo was one of the first buildings burned to the ground in the “riots”.
The prosecution never called the club owner as a witness.
The defense never mentioned the relationship.
George Floyd was busted for passing a counterfeit $20 (that was the reason for the call to police).
Just weird…. nothing more.
