Derek Chauvin sentenced to 20 years for violating George Floyd's rights

Quote:
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison for violating George Floyd's civil rights.

Chauvin, 46, pleaded guilty to the separate federal civil rights charges in December.

He is already serving a 22-year state prison sentence for the on-duty murder of Mr Floyd, a 46-year-old black man.

The two sentences will run concurrently and Chauvin will now be moved to a federal prison.

But he will almost certainly spend more time behind bars following the sentencing. His sentence is due to be followed by five years of supervised release.

"George's life matters," Mr Floyd's brother, Philonese, said in court on Thursday as he asked the judge to impose the maximum sentence of 25 years.

Not only is he responsible for George Floyd's death, his actions sparked weeks of mayhem.

I totally agree.

I don't agree with this. That was mayhem for the sake of mayhem as it usually is. They just used the Floyd incident as an excuse.
I really don't think George Floyd would have wanted that.

I agree with that, but I still think what he did so blatantly for an extended period of time on camera was the spark.

I think the initial outage expressed was genuine. But then it turned into a free-for-all excuse to loot and vandalize.
