George Floyd’s Killer Charged Again

Chauvin has been charged for violating civil rights by a federal grand jury, alongside three of his fellow Minneapolis PD officers who have also lost their jobs. The specifics of the charge essentially acknowledge that all four men deprived Floyd of his constitutional right “not to be deprived of liberty without due process of law.”

The indictment says the defendants “saw George Floyd lying on the ground in clear need of medical care, and willfully failed to aid Floyd, thereby acting with deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of harm to Floyd. This offense resulted in bodily injury to, and the death of, George Floyd.” (TMZ)

Earlier the same month, City Girls’ Yung Miami called out the judge for seemingly favoring the police officer who killed Floyd, Devin Chauvin. When a fan responded to YM’s statement shortly afterward, YM was quick to reply by emphasizing her original words and standing by them.

“I feel like the judge is on Derek Chauvin side! SMH.”
