President Joe Biden came under scrutiny after he said he was “praying the verdict is the right verdict” in the murder case against former police officer Derek Chauvin. Chauvin has been convicted for the murder of George Floyd during an arrest last year.
Biden comments on court case to sway the jury
Briefly speaking with reporters at the White House, the president discussed his call with the family of George Floyd, the Black man in Minnesota who died after he was seen on video – handcuffed – saying “I can’t breathe” as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck. His death sparked nationwide protests last spring and summer over police brutality against minorities and systemic racism.
Now secret Department of Justice plans to arrest Derek Chauvin in court had he been cleared of murdering George Floyd have been revealed. Chauvin never stood a chance at a fair trial and our politicians were willing to sacrifice him just to keep the BLM mob happy.
Multiple sources told the Star Tribune federal prosecutors were ready to move in and charge the ex-cop on federal counts moments after a not guilty verdict on charges of second and third-degree murder, as well as manslaughter, or in the event of a mistrial.
Department of Justice prosecutors now also plan to bring civil rights violations charges – akin to hate crimes – of police brutality against Chauvin and the three other cops on duty with him when Floyd died from an overdose in their custody in May 2020.
Derek Chauvin found guilty after highly politicized trial
Their secret plot saw DOJ investigators under the Biden admin to collaborate with their state counterparts at Minnesota US Attorney’s Office to arrange to charge Chauvin by a process called criminal complaint which does not require a grand jury and would have sped up the process of bringing fresh charges against the former policeman amid fears a not guilty verdict would have prompted fresh riots.
Ultimately, the backup plan did not have to be used, after Chauvin was found guilty of all three counts he faced. He was convicted of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter and taken to Minnesota’s maximum security prison Oak Park Heights.
He will be sentenced on June 25 after the court pushed it back from its initial date of June 16. He faces up to 40 years in prison. With all the crazy stuff that’s been going on lately, why would anyone in their right mind become a police officer? A dangerous, thankless job with crappy pay and if you screw up once your life is over.
