Derek Chauvin Cop Who Murdered George Floyd Out On Bail…

Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis cop whom the world watch for nine min­utes kneel on the neck of George Floyd until he was dead, in May of this year has been released on bail.
Chauvin was freed after post­ing $100,000 through a bail bond agency. Hours lat­er, Gov. Tim Walz of Minnesota announced that he was mobi­liz­ing 100 mem­bers of the Minnesota National Guard “out of an abun­dance of cau­tion” at the request of lead­ers in Minneapolis, which was upend­ed by nights of protest imme­di­ate­ly after the killing of Mr. Floyd in May.
Which makes us won­der at the wis­dom of grant­i­ng him bail when author­i­ties know that protest will erupt, not to men­tion the cost of mobi­liz­ing all of the extra cops and nation­al guards-personnel?

Murder sus­pects are gen­er­al­ly not allowed out on bail across the United States, and so again Derek Chauvin is out on bail sole­ly on the basis that he is a white police offi­cer who is charged with mur­der­ing a black man.
