Ilhan Omar: Police Unions Will Spend a Lot Of Money to Defend Derek Chauvin

The trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck as he was dying in May 2020, is set to begin on Monday.

“Police unions have lots of money and they’re going to deploy every effort to defend the police officer that’s indicted for the murder of George Floyd,” said Minnesota Democratic representative Ilhan Omar on MSNBC on Sunday.

“Our community has been through a lot, witnessing the murder of George Floyd, dealing with the trauma that that comes from that and then having to endure the uprising. It’s also a community that knows what it means to not get justice. So a lot of us are anxiously awaiting for this trial to begin and for justice to be rendered. We know that the police unions have lots of money and they’re going to deploy every effort to defend the police officer that’s indicted for the murder of Jorge Floyd. But there’s a lot of trust in [Minnesota’s] Attorney General Keith Ellison and his team and people are just anxiously awaiting for this trial to proceed.”
