As former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin was led out of the courtroom, images captured the phone number of his attorney written on his left hand.
Defense attorney, Eric Nelson, followed behind as Chauvin was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.
Chauvin wrote down Nelson’s phone number because he knew that, if found guilty, he would likely have his bail revoked and be immediately taken into custody, Nelson told TMZ. He said Chauvin feared a piece of paper would be confiscated.
Fox News has independently reached out to Nelson seeking more information regarding whether Chauvin will try to appeal the court decision.
Chauvin, who could be sent to prison for decades, was found guilty as charged of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.
The jury of six White members and six Black or multiracial members came back with its verdict after about 10 hours of deliberations over two days.
The judge revoked Chauvin’s option for bail and he will have to wait 2 months before sentencing. The most serious charge carries up to 40 years in prison.
Charlie Kirk: The Top 5 Lies Surrounding George Floyd's Death
The Activist Media has lied to America about what took place in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 when Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck during an arrest. Chauvin is going to face trial in the coming weeks.
The justice system will play itself out and Chauvin will be held accountable in some form. BUT—it will likely NOT be a satisfactory enough ruling to keep BLM Incorporated from burning down America again.
Before the verdict is announced, before hysteria ensues, educate yourself: here are the top five LIES that led to the destruction of American cities, the deaths of police officers, and the growing racial divide in our country.
Minneapolis Approves MILLIONS in Additional Funding for Police After Pushing to Defund
The city of Minneapolis has rolled back its original plan to defund the police after residents grew outraged over an increase in violent crime and longer police response times.
On Friday, the City Council unanimously approved $6.4 million in funding which the police requested.
Fox News reports:
The department says it only has 638 officers available to work — roughly 200 fewer than usual. An unprecedented number of officers quit or went on extended medical leave after Floyd’s death and the unrest that followed.
With new recruit classes, the city anticipates it will have 674 officers available at the end of the year, with another 28 in the hiring process, the Star Tribune reported.
In December, the City Council unanimously voted to remove approximately $8 million from the police department budget and redirect it towards violence prevention services and a mental health response.
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) voiced her support for the $8 million decrease in funding for Minneapolis police in November, tweeting “Don’t fall for the fear-driven narratives .We can craft a justice system that prioritizes people’s basic needs like mental health + violence prevention, & allow the city to put public safety first.”
