According to a shocking new report Joe Biden’s Department of justice planned to arrest former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in court in the event he had been found innocent of the murder of George Floyd.

The DOJ had reportedly spent months building up a case against Chauvin on federal police brutality charges.


As The Daily Wire reports:

The Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) reportedly planned to arrest former Minneapolis Police Office Derek Chauvin in court and charge him with civil rights violations if the jury were to find him innocent of murder.

“Leading up to Derek Chauvin’s murder trial, Justice Department officials had spent months gathering evidence to indict the ex-Minneapolis police officer on federal police brutality charges, but they feared the publicity frenzy could disrupt the state’s case,” a report from the Minneapolis Star Tribune outlined. “So they came up with a contingency plan: If Chauvin were found not guilty on all counts or the case ended in a mistrial, they would arrest him at the courthouse, according to sources familiar with the planning discussions.”

This “backup plan,” the report said, wasn’t “necessary” for the DOJ, since the jury on April 20 found Chauvin guilt of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in relation to the death of George Floyd.

Still, the DOJ is moving forward with the case, planning to level charges of civil rights violations against the former officer, who is still awaiting sentencing for the murder and manslaughter convictions.

The threat of government actions against citizens–at least those actions that supersede their Constitutional authority–defines tyranny. Defendants are presumed innocent during criminal proceedings, so establishing an alternative means to introduce criminal charges subsequent to an acquittal represents an oppressive regime’s resolve to demonstrate their powers. This hapless police officer was arresting a criminal, and if you have ever interacted with criminals, as I have, you’ll know they’re not agreeable people, and they’ll resort to violence against police to avoid arrests. I’ve been arrested, but I did not resist the officers, and I cooperated during their interrogation. Criminals who’ve spent most of their lives in jails, or gangs, burglaries, murders and other activities know all the tricks to prevent their arrests, including invoking their race, and threatening officers with lawsuits. The one thing those brave police don’t need to hear is that their own government will side with the crooks.

Well expressed, but he courts have long ruled that a subsequent prosecution on different charges is not double jeopardy. The history of civil rights charges is embedded in federal law because of the former corrupt practices of southern states to scuttle charges against a white person on a black one. Civil rights charges had their merits some time ago, but have diminished over time.

I would think that Congress will eventually have to change the law but it won’t be now, not with the word racism being tossed around like trinkets at a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade. Some have argued that double jeopardy does obtain if the civil rights charges are predicated on the same facts as the state criminal charges.

Technically, you’re correct. But lining-up charges against a defendant with the intent to ‘arrange’ a conviction to satisfy pressure groups is both unconstitutional and indicative of political tyranny. These jurists know better than to pursue criminal convictions without tempering their zeal to impose “Justice”. As I’ve mentioned, I WAS a criminal, and I’ve dealt with some pretty shady characters during my stint in that realm. People who don’t interact with that group have no idea how vicious they can be, and how they’ll manipulate the laws, resist arrest, lead police on dangerous chases and even injure or kill law enforcement officers to escape that “Justice”.
