Only White Jail Guards Allowed Near the Cop Who Killed George Floyd

When George Floyd’s alleged killer arrived at a Minnesota detention center last June, the superintendent ordered that only white guards were allowed to interact with the disgraced cop. Now, eight correctional officers who worked at the jail where Derek Chauvin was being held have filed suit against the local county, alleging they were barred from doing their jobs because of their race.

The plaintiffs, who identify as Black, Hispanic, mixed-race, and Pacific Islander, are suing Ramsey County in Minnesota state court Tuesday, saying that Superintendent Steven Lydon, who oversees the county Adult Detention Center excused them and other correctional officers of color from interacting with Chauvin, and reassigned them away from their normal duties…

“Plaintiffs went to work expecting to do their jobs just as they had every day before that,” the complaint reads. “However, Defendant’s Superintendent, Steve Lydon, ordered that all correctional officers of color, including Plaintiffs, were prohibited from interacting with or guarding Chauvin, or going anywhere on the 5th floor, where Chauvin was held.”

RTFA. Some truly convoluted lies from the miserable hack in charge.

    The distasteful photo of Floyd, who suffocated to death while being pinned down by cops in Minneapolis last year, was reportedly being “passed around” within the department’s ranks, the LA Times said in a report. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-02-13/lapd-employee-posts-photo-of-george-floyd-with-caption-you-take-my-breath-away
