(INTELLIHUB) — New video footage has surfaced which shows the grim reality of George Floyd’s murder by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
In fact, the footage is so shocking that words can not describe it.
Take note of how the other officers standby and let it all happen.
Warning: The following video contains graphic language and imagery. Viewer discretion is advised.
And if that is not enough, Chauvin may receive over $1 million dollars in pension benefits starting in several years.
CBS News reports:
Chauvin, 44, was fired in May one day after video showed him putting his knee on Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds during an arrest, leading to Floyd’s death. Chauvin now faces a second-degree murder charge and is held on $1 million bail; three other officers who were also fired were charged for aiding and abetting murder.
But Minnesota is one of several states that has no law relinquishing or reducing pension for public employees if they are convicted of felonies related to their work. This means Chauvin, who worked for the Minneapolis police department since 2001, could be eligible for pension benefits — partially funded by taxpayers — even if he’s convicted and imprisoned. Chauvin faces up to 40 years behind bars if found guilty.
