This is what happens when you think you’re protecting the good guys.

In this day and age, they are not the good guys. Justice that turns a blind eye on cops needs to stop. A few of these cops aren’t any better than any other criminals when they break the law. Stop covering for them.

[The Week] George Floyd’s death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record.

Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden’s vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, and did not prosecute the officer who kneeled on Floyd’s neck as he protested, The Guardian reports.

Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday, according to a database that documents complaints against police. In particular, he was involved in the shooting death of a man who had stabbed other people before attacking police, as well as some other undisclosed complaints. Klobuchar did not prosecute Chauvin and other officers involved for the first death, which occurred in October 2006 while she was running for Senate. The case was under investigation when Klobuchar took office in the Senate in Jan. 2007, and later went to a grand jury, which declined to charge the officers. Chauvin was later placed on leave when he and other officers shot and wounded a Native American man in 2011.

As The Washington Post noted in March, Klobuchar “declined to bring charges in more than two dozen cases in which people were killed in encounters with police” as Hennepin County attorney. Instead, she “aggressively prosecuted smaller offenses” that “have been criticized for their disproportionate effect on poor and minority communities,” the Post continues. And as Klobuchar undergoes vetting to become a possible vice presidential candidate, that track record is being scrutinized and criticized once again.

This is the problem with DAs and cops they have a conflict of interest all decisions to prosecute an independent civilian entity should make cops to prosecutors who work with cops these cops were pretty brazen this cop killed a man while being video tapped they thought they could get away with murder its amazing the killer cop who was filmed murdering someone is still free.

That’s what happens when you have a strong Democrat police union and Democrat politicians. Everything in Minnesota is controlled entirely by radical left-wing Democrats.

I want to thank all the rioters and looters for perpetuating ALL the negative stereotypes everyone has towards minorities and those in the lower-income brackets. You all do nothing to help bring justice for Floyd’s death.
