    A former FBI informant stabbed Derek Chauvin, the ex-police officer who was convicted for murdering George Floyd, according to court documents filed on Dec. 1. John Turscak, 52, stabbed Mr. Chauvin 22 times with an "improvised knife" in federal prison in Arizona, according to the documents. Mr. Turscak was subdued by responding corrections officers. Mr. Turscak later told officers he would have killed Mr. Chauvin if the officers had not responded so quickly, federal prosecutors said in the documents. The stabbing took place on Nov. 24 at about 12:30 p.m. Mr. Turscak waived his Miranda rights and told FBI agents...

    JUST IN: The inmate who stabbed Derek Chauvin 22 times in prison last week has been identified by The U.S. Attorney's Office 52-year-old John Turscak. Oddly enough, Turscak is a former FBI informant!! Coincidence? I don’t think so. Seems like a coordinated effort to kill Chauvin. “Turscak told investigators that he attacked Chauvin on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, as a symbolic connection to the Black Lives Matter movement and the "Black Hand" symbol associated with the Mexican Mafia gang, prosecutors said.”

    A deranged trans shooter killed six in a horrific massacre at a Nashville Christian school back in April. The deceased shooter, Audrey “Aiden” Hale, left behind a manifesto. Nashville Police refused to share it with the public. We learned this week why. In screenshots obtained by Steven Crowder, Hale vented her murderous rage towards whites, whom she referred to as privileged “crackers.” Despite being white herself, the shooter wanted to kill those like her. This rhetoric isn’t found in the dark corners of 4chan. Anti-white hate is part of school curricula throughout the country. It’s broadcast by television channels and...

    comment on their decision to leave in place state court rulings affirming Chauvin’s conviction and 22 1/2-year sentence, San Diego Union-Tribune reported. In October, attorneys representing Chauvin appealed to the Supreme Court to review his case. This appeal was based on the refusal of a Minnesota trial court to change the venue of the trial and sequester the jury. Chauvin argued that holding the trial in Minneapolis violated his right to a fair trial. He argued this was due to extensive pretrial media coverage and the potential for violent protests and riots if he were found not guilty.

    A sobering new documentary aims to debunk the false narratives surrounding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.“The Fall of Minneapolis,” produced by Alpha News journalist Liz Collin, also examines the tragic impacts of the Black Lives Matter riots, including the collapse of law and order, that continues to this day.Before the George Floyd riots, Collin was a popular Emmy-award-winning news anchor for WCCO-TV in Minneapolis.In 2020, she faced withering criticism over her marriage to Bob Kroll, then the head of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis.

    Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa has claimed that then-Mayor Bill de Blasio deliberately failed to deploy enough cops during the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests in New York City because he feared violent clashes between the NYPD and protesters would embarrass him. Like many other issues, how to handle the protests that erupted over the police killing of George Floyd in Minnesota triggered disagreements between Cuomo and de Blasio, recounts DeRosa in her forthcoming memoir, “What’s Left Unsaid: My Life at the Center of Power, Politics & Crisis.” “We learned that a high-ranking member of the police...

    Tou Thao, the former Minneapolis police officer who held back a crowd of bystanders during George Floyd’s fatal arrest in May 2020, was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison Monday for aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Thao gave a short comment on his role in Floyd’s death in a statement prior to his sentencing in a Minnesota courthouse. “Obviously, on that day, we didn’t intend on – I didn’t intend on doing any malice or anything like that, or try to hurt anyone. That was never my intent. I did the best I thought I could,” he...

    The 2020 murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer fueled a movement for racial justice in all elements of American society, from police forces to education to businesses. Now, a new survey has has found that three-quarters of Black executives say their companies have since made positive changes in hiring and retaining Black Americans. Nearly 75 percent of Black executives told CNBC — which conducted the survey in partnership with the Executive Leadership Council — that they have seen a positive change in hiring, retaining and promoting Black employees since Floyd’s murder. More than 40 percent of companies...

    Keenan Anderson, a Black man who was repeatedly tased by police officers following a January traffic collision, died from the effects of an enlarged heart and cocaine use, the Los Angeles County medical examiner-coroner said. Anderson, a 31-year-old high school teacher and father from Washington, D.C., was also the cousin of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors. On Jan. 3, Anderson was trying to get help after a car crash in Venice, Calif., when he was chased, held down by multiple officers and tased for over 90 seconds. He'd been in California visiting family. Anderson was the suspect in a...

    Three years after George Floyd was murdered by police in Minneapolis at the age of 46, Black Americans are still more than twice as likely to be killed by police as white Americans. Much has changed since Floyd’s killing, but that startling statistic from the database Mapping Police Violence underscores how much hasn’t changed all the same. Floyd’s death led to mass protests across the country and the world, and it awakened much of the country to how much change is necessary to take real strides toward racial equality and justice. Lawmakers who have pushed for change note that despite...

    On the three-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd and one year after President Biden issued reforms for federal officers, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) laid out its work in increasing police accountability while also calling for more to be done. “In the year since President Biden issued the executive order on policing, the Congressional Black Caucus has been leading the effort in Congress to improve public safety and promote police accountability,” Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.), chair of the CBC, said in a statement. “The CBC has worked to ensure the Department of Justice would make progress on implementation...

    Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis Police Officer convicted in the murder of George Floyd, is appealing his case to the Minnesota Supreme Court. Chauvin’s lawyer, William Mohrman, on Wednesday filed a petition for review with the state’s highest court, arguing that the district judge’s decision not to move the proceedings out of the city deprived his client of a fair trial. The petition comes a month after the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld Chauvin’s conviction for second-degree murder and let his 22-1/2-year sentence remain in place. Morhman had unsuccessfully asked the appeals court to throw out the ex-officer’s conviction for...

    It's deja vu all over again. A man is dead in the subway system of New York City and the responses were all too predictable. Jordan Neely, a sometimes Michael Jackson street impersonator, died after being put in a chokehold by an ex-Marine, Daniel Penny. The NY Times and the Washington Post seized upon it to rebrand the dead man into a totally innocent victim, with the Post even raising the specter of racism. "Senior prosecutors" are looking into the death (which means, as this is Alvin Bragg's turf, you can bet Penny will be charged with murder and as...

    The last of four former Minneapolis police officers facing state charges in the death of George Floyd has been convicted of aiding and abetting manslaughter. Tou Thao was convicted for his role in the murder of Floyd, who died on May 25, 2020, when former police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for more than nine minutes despite his fading cries of “I can’t breathe.” Floyd’s killing led to worldwide protests, and his last words became a rallying cry in the call for police reform. Chauvin was convicted of murder and manslaughter in April 2021 and later pleaded guilty...

    People who rioted in New York City during the protests over the death of career criminal George Floyd in Minneapolis while in police custody have been awarded $6 million in "damages" because some of the NYC police officers who arrested them weren't wearing masks. Bill deBlasio, NYC's mayor at the time of the riots, called the settlement "righteous. The hundreds of people arrested during the riot were needlessly exposed to the deadly covid virus by cops who went into the streets unmasked. While we may never know how many thousands died as a result of this despicable negligence, the survivors...

Police are releasing the footage later a night to allow people to get home beforehand. Nichols, 29, was brutally beaten like a 'human piñata' by five Memphis,...

    A former Minneapolis Police Department officer pleaded guilty Monday to state charges of aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter for his role in the death of George Floyd in 2020. Alexander Kueng entered his plea just as jury selection in the trial was set to begin. Kueng could face 3 1/2 years in prison under sentencing guidelines for the aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Prosecutors had dropped an aiding and abetting second-degree murder charge that called for more than 12 years in prison, according to The Associated Press.
