Breaking: Derek Chauvin Sentenced To 22 Years In Prison For Murdering George Floyd

Published: Friday 25th Jun 2021 by Sam

In news just in, Derek Chauvin has been sentenced to 22 and a half years for murdering unarmed Black man George Floyd.

Full story below…

At today’s sentencing, Judge Peter Cahill handed down the long term to the former Minneapolis police officer.

Back in April, a jury deemed Chauvin culpable for Floyd’s death on May 25 2020, after he knelt on his neck for over 9 minutes.

He was found guilty on all three charges, which were: 2nd-degree murder, 3rd-degree murder, and 2nd-degree manslaughter.

The sentence is the longest ever given to a convicted police officer under such circumstances.

Prior to it behind handed down, tensions were high given that the range for second-degree murder (the most serious conviction) was wide – between 15-30 years.

Ultimately, the judgement factored in the seriousness of his “abuse of trust and authority and the cruelty shown toward George Floyd.”

Speaking at the hearing, 45-year-old Chauvin raised eyebrows when he said:

“I just want to give my condolences to the Floyd family. The will be some information in the future that will be of some interest and give you some peace of mind.” 

Earlier the disgraced officer’s mother pled with the judge for her son to not receive a long sentence, describing him as a “quiet, thoughtful, honorable and selfless man.”

Suffice to say, the judge did not agree.

Our thoughts remain with George Floyd’s family.

    He will only be 67 when he gets out, I personally think that’s Far too Young for someone that killed an INNOCENT man. I hope he has to share his cell with Fleece Balloon Knot Johnson.

    He’ll be out in 15, because he only has to serve two-thirds of the sentence. This is why I was saying people shouted “Justice has been served!” too soon. If he had been given the maximum, he’d be serving 26 years – that’s a big difference.

    He’ll be taking more loads than every laundromat in the U.S. combined.

    Even when he’s 60 and LOOSE, inmates will be tossing shots in him just to say they did.

    His b’hole will be wider than the grand canyon….
