(Big League Politics) – The four Minneapolis police officers who oversaw the death of serial felon George Floyd as he overdosed on fentanyl have been hit with federal civil rights charges.
Former officers Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, J. Kueng and Tou Thao have been named in an unsealed indictment. Chauvin has already been convicted of murder while Lane, Kueng and Thao face state charges. The feds want to make sure the men are crucified regardless of the facts of the case.
Race baiters like Reverend Al Sharpton are very happy with this news. He claims that the charges do “not excuse it nor allow police to act as though as what they do is acceptable behavior in the line of duty.”
“What we couldn’t get them to do in the case of Eric Garner, Michael Brown in Ferguson, and countless others, we are finally seeing them do today,” Sharpton said.
Big League Politics has reported on how Chauvin is requesting a new trial because of the farce that occurred during the initial trial:
“The attorney representing Derek Chauvin has requested a new trial for his client, citing several grounds including jury misconduct and outside intimidation.
Attorney Eric Nelson filed a motion Tuesday. Chauvin was convicted of second- and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter last month in the 2020 killing of George Floyd.

“The cumulative effect of the multiple errors in these proceedings deprived Mr. Chauvin of a fair trial, in violation of his constitutional rights,” Nelson writes.
Nelson also accuses the state of Minnesota of committing “pervasive, prejudicial prosecutorial misconduct […] including but not limited to: disparaging the defense; improper vouching; and failing to adequately prepare its witnesses.”
Big League Politics has recently written two pieces about members of the Chauvin jury. Juror 96 Lisa Christensen admitted to the local news that she had “mixed feelings” about serving in the first place and feared the wrath of the mob if she and her peers voted to exonerate Chauvin.”
The new justice system is taking shape in the diverse and multicultural America. Rule by mob has replaced rule of law, and the country is looking more like Somalia than the land of the free.
