The police Man who kneed on Judge Floyd neck which lead to his death (Derek Chauvin) has been released from jail after posting a $1 million bond.
Chauvin had been jailed in segregation at the maximum security Oak Park Heights, Minnesota prison awaiting a March 8 trial in the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
A Minnesota Department of Corrections spokesperson confirmed Chauvin was no longer being held at the prison on Wednesday, and state court records show he posted a non cash bond of $1million on Oct. 7, signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainerd, Minnesota.
A notice of was posted at 10:34 a.m. on Oct. 7, jail records show he was released from Hennepin County Jail at 11:22 a.m.
Chauvin was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter just four days after the Memorial Day death of George Floyd at the intersection of E. 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis.
The Floyd family’s attorneys Ben Crump and co-counsel Antonio Romanucci released the following statement on Derek Chauvin’s release on bond:”
Derek Chauvin’s release on bond is a painful reminder to George Floyd’s family that we are still far from achieving justice for George.
The system of due process worked for Chauvin and afforded him his freedom while he awaits trial. In contrast, George Floyd was denied due process, when his life was ended over a $20 bill. There was no charge, no arrest, no hearing, no bail.
Just execution. Although George Floyd was denied justice in life, we will not rest until he is afforded full justice in death. The civil litigation team looks forward to our day in court
