Derek Chauvin has lawyer-ed up with the best lawyers a police union could muster up. Derek Chauvin probably wants the presumption of innocence until prove guilty, but from this perspective Derek Chauvin will get the same presumption he afforded 47-year-old George Floyd.
Thousands of protesters squared off against police in Minneapolis late Tuesday, just hours after disturbing footage emerged showing a white police officer kneeling on an unarmed black man’s neck for several minutes before he died.
Chanting “I can’t breathe,” protesters marched from the site where George Floyd, 46, died in police custody on Monday to the police department’s third precinct, where some demonstrators reportedly left graffiti on police vehicles and smashed in windows. Videos taken from the scene by a local KSTP reporter showed tear gas canisters being fired into the crowd by police as demonstrators coughed and gagged. Other videos purportedly taken from the scene showed protesters hurling objects at police vehicles.

It appears Derek Chauvin has been part of previous police shootings in Minneapolis. This is a developing story. Check back frequently as we have crowd reporters in this Minnesota twin city. This was no accident. This was a purge event by this policeman and his accompanying cohorts. This is as fowl and ugly as it gets.
