posted by Hannity Staff - 4.20.21

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz officially declared a ‘State of Emergency’ hours before a jury is set to deliver their verdict on Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with second-degree murder in the killing of George Floyd.

Fox 9 reported that Walz held a news conference to lay out his plans to maintain security. He said the state is bringing in police backup from Nebraska and Ohio. The report pointed out that the Minnesota Senate approved $9 million in emergency funding to deal with potential unrest,” reports Fox News.

 

“We can’t live like this,” he said. “We simply can’t. But we can’t have thousands of businesses burned and people put at risk.”

“The murder case against Chauvin in the death of George Floyd went to the jury Monday. The jury of six white people and six people who are Black or multiracial began deliberating after nearly a full day of closing arguments,” adds Fox.

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.20.21

Closing arguments are now underway in the Minneapolis trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd.

“Floyd’s death, and the shocking video of the events leading up to it, caused national and global outrage. Now there are fears of unrest if Chauvin is acquitted — an outcome that Black Americans, in particular, would see as evidence of a system egregiously biased against them,” reports The Hill.

 

 

“The Chauvin verdict is set to play out against the backdrop of the deaths of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minn., just 11 miles from the site of Floyd’s death; and of Adam Toledo, a 13-year-old, in Chicago,” adds the outlet.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar stunned residents of Minneapolis Friday; saying the police department is “beyond reform” and most be “disbanded and reimagined for public safety.”

“The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform. It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis,” posted Omar on social media.

 

Fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s charge will be upgraded to 2nd Degree Murder Wednesday, according to Fox News and other sources, adding the other 3 officers who were present during George Floyd’s death will also be charged.

“Chauvin will now be charged with second-degree murder, The Star Tribune first reported. The other three officers involved — Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng and Tou Thao – will be charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder,” reports Fox News.

“We expect all of the police officers to be arrested before we have the memorial here in Minneapolis tomorrow. Because we cannot have two justice systems in America – one for black America, one for white America. We must have equal justice for the United States of America,” said the attorney for the Floyd family.
