Reactions as Murderer of George Floyd, Derek Chauvin is slammed 22.5 years jail term.

The judge handling the murder case of George Floyd has finally  put  the case  to rest after slamming former Minneapolis police, Derek Chauvin a 22.5 year jail term.

According to Fox news reports, Derek was arrested in April 2020 for a second and third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

Minnesota court District judge Cahill passed the judgment which says, Derek will stay in jail till after 22.5 years. According to Judge, he passed this verdict, not because of sympathy but because it’s the law.

It was expected that the judge would hand down a sentence between 20 and 25 years, with a maximum of 40 and an average sentence for similar crimes around 12.5. Floyd’s brothers asked the court for the maximum punishment of 40 years, and prosecutors asked for 30. It’s due to the clean records of Chauvin. His record had no similar case of Floyd.

After Derek’s sentence reactions have surfaced around the world. Many criticize the judge for favoring Derek. That he could have more than that. Read some of the comments on social media below;

Al Sharpton: “This verdict and this sentencing is the longest sentence we’ve seen, but it is not justice because George Floyd is in a grave tonight even though Chauvin will be in jail.”

Sue Teya “As a police officer for 20 years, this man got a slap on the wrist!! He is one hell of a lucky human being. What he did was horrendous and as a former police officer, I am embarrassed!!”

Giovanna Bonadies Hamilton “22 or 30, or life in prison… HIS LIFE IS OVER. Nothing will bring Floyd Back. However, and hopefully, this will serve as a call for ANY person with power and authority to rethink their ways.”

Ashley Garett “It’s not enough for murdering a human being he was entrusted to protect. However, it is a start. It is very slow progress. It is one officer being held accountable out of probably thousands who have done similar abuses of power. It’s good to take one tiny chip at the marble slab rather than letting it continue to stand intact, but it is still not enough. George Floyd deserves better, and so does every other POC who has died due to law enforcement’s abuse of power. Murderers should be behind bars until they die.”

Bori EnelMangle “What is wrong with the system when a law enforcement officer thinks it is right to kneel on somebody’s neck for 9 minutes? Sad day.”

Chris Hunter “The full 30 years would have been justice. This is a light sentence given the circumstances. Anyone else hopes that Chauvin gets moved into the general population? I would assume 100%.”
