DoJ had backup plan to arrest Chauvin if he was acquitted, report says

The Department of Justice had a backup plan to arrest Derek Chauvin if the jury acquitted him in the murder trial of George Floyd, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. It said federal investigators had been building a police brutality case for months against Chauvin and the three other former Minneapolis cops who were charged in the case. The plan was not needed as the jury found Chauvin guilty.

Sounds like they had predetermined determined guilt, and wanted insurance incase the jury didn't rule how they saw it.

Another unconstitutional, unjust action that would've been taken. I don't see how the bronze was charged with manslaughter and murder, even worse convicted. He belongs in a cage but it could've, should've been a mistrial.

If you think this is normal or good in any way, you deserve to live in a dystopian nightmare society. And if you think this comment on any way defends any one side, you should quit public discourse.

Yup, I mean if you had gotten off we can just pin on the second time he gets charged with aliens. You would only understand that joke if you actually watch the trial which many horny racists here did not.

Doesn’t seem much different from the rest of the world, your private life is as thick as a roll of toilet paper, whoever in charge can roll on you when your time is up.

Our government is going "woke" and "totalitarian" at the same time (like the 1960s Chinese Red Guards). If someone is found not guilty, you cannot try them again on a similar charge that should have been brought up in the main trial. That is called a kangaroo court, and is used in dictatorships to ensure guilt by any means!

They were going to find him guilty anyway because they didn't the jurors would have there houses burn down by a group of angry black people called black lives matter.

The charges would run in addition to the Justice Department's civil investigation into whether Minneapolis police engage in a pattern and practice of unlawful behavior. Justice officials announced this investigation the day after Chauvin's guilty verdict, another calculated move designed to avoid interfering with the state's trial.
