There is an alleged report saying Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who murdered George Floyd wasn’t actually arrested but his being held in protective custody after receiving death threats.
Ariana Grande also retweeted an article announcing that Chauvin was being held in protective custody and wrote, “a murderer is being held in protective custody,”.
On Friday, the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was reported to have been taken into custody and faced with charges of 3rd-degree murder and manslaughter.
His arrest comes three days after he and three other officers were fired for their involvement in Floyd’s detainment on May 25, where footage obtained by bystanders showed Chauvin pinning Floyd to the ground while kneeling on his neck for five minutes as he pleaded, “I can’t breathe” and died moments later.
