Derek Chauvin is sentenced in the death of George Floyd

 

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been sentenced to 270 months, or 22.5 years, in the murder of George Floyd last year.

Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill said the sentence was not based on "emotion" or "sympathy" but said "we need to recognize the pain of the Floyd family."

Chauvin, earlier, offered his condolences to Floyd's family but did not apologize for his actions last year that caused Floyd's death.

"I do want to give my condolences to the Floyd family," Chauvin said. He said he was unable to speak further due to other ongoing litigation.

Chauvin's mother also spoke, as well as Floyd's 7-year-old daughter Gianna, nephew and brothers. Floyd's family and attorneys called for the court to give Chauvin the maximum sentence.

    1. Move on where ? To the cemetery ?
      I agree also some of his family members too. They all need to pay. That will be real Justice.

  1. Wow,my appreciation goes to *texasclone* for the CC of $3000 I received,I’m really impressed,thanks man

  2. The attorney ask who is D. Chauvin ? His answer should have been, A MURDERER. Why because WE ALL WATCHED THE SAME THING, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. He should have gotten more time .And his Attorney thinks so highly of him, Then why does he have other legal Situations pending if he is such a wonderful guy such a great guy ?

  3. WHEN JESUS RETURN , I PRAY ALL IS READY . THE BIBLE SAY; HE’S COMING BACK ANGRY.HIS EYES WILL BE RED LIKE FIRE. “MAN EXCUSES ARE NOT GOD’S”.

  4. I wonder if Chauvin’s badge number was given to a rookie or if they retired it in the trash can? I would not have his previous badge on my chest!!!

    1. My first week of trading with her. She made poor return i almost gave up but i tired again and ever since then my returns have been massive.

    2. I’ve never seen someone as perfect as Bridgette , she knows how to analyse trade, and with her strategies she earned me so much profit. Made €16,800 in 16 days of working with her.

    3. @Vong Robert Wow, I know Bridgette Sinclair. I met her at a conference in Florida last year where she introduced us to her platform. I even just withdrew $20k from the $13k I invested last week.

    4. @Vong Robert Her platform is an international company where she helps people trade and pays them their profit on a weekly basis. It’s very beneficial

  5. That mammy of his pissed me off! Where was this man that she spoke of the day that he killed GF? He wasn’t loving, caring or compassionate that day. And not once did she apologize for the overall circumstances or offer condolences to the family. Then to state she will not be able to see or talk to her son. Are you serious?!?! George is gone forever and his family def will not see him or talk to him again. Deanbat mother!

  6. Too less for such a cruel abusive intention driven murder!
    Not just him but other officers helping him to murder should also be sentenced harshly!
    What king of law is this…
