Derek Chauvin indicted on federal civil rights charges in George Floyd’s death

Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis, Minnesota police officer recently convicted of murder in the death of George Floyd, isn’t yet out of the woods, legally speaking, nor are several police officers who were with him on the day of Floyd’s death.

According to Breitbart, Chauvin, and former fellow police officers Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane, were all indicted this week on federal civil rights charges for their alleged roles in Floyd’s death. The news comes in the wake of Chauvin’s recent request for a new trial.

The indictment claims that the police officers who were at the scene during Floyd’s arrest “deprived Floyd’s rights when they saw him lying on the ground ‘in clear need’ of medical care, but ‘willfully failed to aid Floyd, thereby acting with deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of harm.'”

“Chauvin held his left knee across George Floyd’s neck, and his right knee on Floyd’s back and arm, as George Floyd lay on the ground, handcuffed and unresisting, and kept his knees on Floyd’s neck and body even after Floyd became unresponsive. This offense resulted in bodily injury to, and the death of George Floyd,” the indictment continued.

Civil rights attorneys celebrated the news, with lawyers Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci issuing a joint statement praising the new civil rights charges, according to ABC News.

“The Constitution claims to be committed to life, liberty, and justice, and we are seeing this realized in the justice George Floyd continues to receive,” the attorneys said. “This comes after hundreds of years of American history in which Black Americans unfortunately did not receive equal justice.”

The bombshell indictment news also comes on the heels of recent revelations that the U.S. Department of Justice reportedly had a plan to arrest Chauvin had his trial resulted in anything other than a conviction.

Chauvin’s former colleagues were all released on a $25,000 bond after appearing in court Friday in response to the new charges they face, while they await trial for their involvement on the day that Floyd died.

Only time will tell how everything plays out, but it’s now crystal clear that the legal ramifications of Floyd’s death are far from over for those involved.

Where has this country gone “MAD” down here in Delaware on 10 May 2021 we are having services for a Delmar, Delaware police officer who was killed while performing his sworn duty by an individual with a criminal history. There were no demonstrations, there was no hate involved, the officer was white the perp was black . They were able to collect approximately $32,000 for his family for being killed in the line of duty, St.George Floyd in his quest to commit crimes , resist arrest high on drugs with medical issues family receives over $32 million dollars to a family he hasn’t seen or supported in over 6 years. There was no nationwide exposure of this incident . This is kinda like saying Crime pays, honesty and integrity sucks.
    Please keep this officer and his family in your prayers tomorrow

  7. Gotta prove it’s racist. The policemen and floyd even provided security at a local night club. They knew each other and both worked with each other, so prove it’s racist. It was a police call where the reason for the police call was floyd who was high on heart killing drugs and a big man fighting much smaller men. If it was racist it was racist from the feds not the cops. The feds are just trying to make it look like they are not fake feds only going after Trump supporters. They have decided to go after an already convicted cop because he’s easy prey. Who do the feds think they are kidding. I am suprised that the feds aren’t charging the January 6 Trumpers still in jail in solitary confinement who have not seen a judge yet with racism. I am sure they can twist a racist charge into the January 6 deal. Might be hard though since everybody on both sides were whites.

  8. If feds want to arrest some one they should get biden hes not doing his job chauvin was doing his.

  9. Disgusting….go to the root and get rid of anyone who leading up to this made sure it happened…..

  10. Sir are all police standing between U.S..A. Kenite crime makers and the U.S.A. Kenite courts , that only make U.S.A. laws that are only pro-Kenities???

  11. So this is the new justice system in this country where criminals are made heroes and praised for crimes. What a ccccoooooouuuuuunnnnnnnttttrrrrryyyyy!!!!

  12. Let me see if I understand this???
    Chauvin is CONVICTED of 3 SEPERATE MURDERS.
    FLOYD and what OTHER 2 PEOPLE. Where are the OTHER 2 BODIES????
    I thought Floyd was the only who died by BEING STUPID. WHO are the OTHER 2 STUPID DRUGGIES??????

  13. All of us no this is political. They would have never taken a knee if it was not an election year. We would never have heard his name. Dems waste no tragedy. Police are up against everyone now. I stand with the blue.

  14. Floyd is being used as an excuse, I have the verbal transcripts that indicate he was uncooperative, sounds like he was on some type of drug, It indicates that the police were sympathetic to his not wanting to get in a car without open windows, and told him to get in without closing the car door until he felt comfortable, but he wouldn`t, he was a large man and was strong along with whatever drugs were in his system, I`m sad that he died, and I feel that he might have had trouble breathing even before he was secured by the police. This is why this trial is injustice with its outcome, manslaughter under extenuating circumstances, but not first-degree murder, this was a kangaroo court by appearance, aided and abetted by Maxine Walters, who in my mind should be indited for possible terrorist activities. and subversion of justice.

  15. Floyd could have been comfortably seated in the car, where he would also have died from his drug overdose.

  16. Every Police officer in a blue state, needs to immediately quit their job and move to a red state for work..
    It will be fun to see how man liberal dem bloodsuckers, ANtifa and BLM get killed, till they start refunding police.

  17. Even if he was guilty of the crime he’s being charged twice for the same crime it’s a form of Double Jeopardy which supposed to be illegal.

  18. Sooo let me get this clear …. in your state an individual has no responsibility for them selves❗️You get high or drunk pas. Funny money and refuse to be arrested then it’s their fault when it all goes wrong? That about right? So his family had no responsibility for his upbringing, just go out and father babies and let the baby mothers raise them just like he was? Then if they do babies like fathers that’s okay? Hmmmm where I was raised we had a different set of rules. It it okay if we choice not to follow Mr Floyd but the way our families raised us? To make our own way use real money to buy what we need and stop and surrender when arrested for disturbing the peace? And if the police have a different color of skin (white, brown, black, red, yellow) we still honor their uniform and do as we are told ? Is it okay with you if that sounds like a better safer way to do thinks. Maybe Mr. Floyd should have gone to kindergarten. At least I think there was where I started to learn civics as well as how to get along with and treat others❗️

  19. This is wrong in so many ways this is happening because of blm and antifa and the people need to say this is enough, blm and antifa are nothing but terrorists and schould be arrested and deported after they lose their citizenship.

    1. I totally agree! If we don’t take a stand soon, we won’t ever be able to in future. Enough is enough – BLM and Antifa are scourges on the American people. They are the ones that should be in courts being prosecuted for the evil they continually do.

  20. This is so wrong. If the police were trained the way this policeman did; there was no wrong. They are cowtowing to Waters exhorted really needs Gitmo for inciting riots. BLM leader bought Three million dollar homes. That to me sounds like Money to riot. The Semocrats are so dirty that I think they paid BLM and Antifa to destroy our cities. Notice how disgusting they are about our cities and our people.

    1. They hate America and they hate Americans. Soros was paying them for a while. Don’t know if he still is or not. Something tells me these thugs won’t be around much longer anyway.

        1. DITTO!! When they claim; ““The Constitution claims to be committed to life, liberty, and justice, and we are seeing this realized in the justice George Floyd continues to receive,” the attorneys said. ”
          NOW, do they say the SAME thing when it comes to the the LIFE, LIBERTY AND JUSTICE of the pre-born babies?????

    1. Agreed, these felons, violent thugs, drug users and dealers all need to be taken out by the fine police. Floyd died because of what HE did, not what any police officer did. These fine police officers are NOT GUILTY of any crime and the people falsely charging them all need to be removed from their office and charged with felonies, plus the Floyd family needs to pay all of these fine police officers for the libel and slander and defamation of character that THEY have caused and their inept attorneys have caused. Floyd deserved to die that day. It was God’s Will! Remove a total scumbag and stop endangering good, law abiding citizens. Redemption will come and the left wing racists will soon be long gone. God Bless America!

      1. It’s absolutely horrible what they are doing to this police officer; and the others. Floyd’s case is no different than the many thousands (or more) of case before him. He was violent, he was on heavy drugs, he was resisting arrest. Chauvin(sp?) did exactly what he (and the others) were supposed to do when someone is resisting arrest. It’s an absolute SIN that they are making an example of him. Sickening! Someone(s) come out and save this poor guy. :’-(
