California Police Chiefs Association Statement on Verdict in Derek Chauvin Trial

by ECT

“We appreciate the work of our judicial system and the deliverance of justice in this case,” stated Chief Abdul Pridgen, President of the California Police Chiefs Association. “This incident, although tragic, has helped bring further attention to the ongoing need to improve and advance law enforcement practices and continue to build trust in our criminal justice system. It is our commitment, as California’s police chiefs, to continue working towards these shared goals each and every day.”

The California Police Chiefs Association represents the state’s municipal police chiefs whose agencies protect over 26 million Californians.

The officer did the world a favor!
Too bad he is now the victim of racist politics.
Hopefully it will be overturned on appeal.Especially that the ghetto politicians have opened their racist mouths.

Praise God, justice served.

Chief Abdul “Pigeon” said that? Guess what, Abdul! The sentencing will take place 8 weeks from now and a lot can happened between now and then. First, Chauvin does not have any priors and that will be considered by the judge. Then, Mad Maxine Waters traveled to Minneapolis and opened her big trap and actually “saved” Officer Chauvin from incarceration. Thank you, Maxine! Just because the jury finds him guilty doesn’t mean that’s how it stands. Learn something about how the law works. No matter what happens, there will be appeals. George Floyd was a LIFE LONG CRIMINAL who did some very horrible and brutal things to many people. His victims will not miss him. He has always had problems with the police and even had one a week before this incident.

This verdict means nothing. Nobody murdered this criminal. It’s just an example of how MOB RULE operates and that should scare everybody in this country. Maxie Waters threatened the country and that should have stopped the jury deliberation immediately.

For once police are put on notice that it’s no longer acceptable to bully people while performing their duties. Police should be as accountable for their actions as the rest of us. They are NOT the law. They are there to protect and serve.

Funny how people are anti- cops until they need one.

Floyd was a documented scumbag. This cop was no saint, but I don’t agree with the verdict, maybe 3rd degree at most.

Guess what, LOVEABLECURMUDGEON! Nothing will change and things will get far worse for criminals like Floyd. If criminals don’t want to be ” bullied” then they shouldn’t commit crimes! Simple as that! Hope you understand. I want repeating criminals to BE BULLIED! I want them treated like what they are. Just like Floyd, who has committed crimes his entire life, finally got to MEET HIS MATCH! He didn’t die at the hands of the cop, but he died in A HOSPITAL many hours after the incident where the cop put a knee ON FLOYD’S BACK. Watch that video closely and you’ll see. Nobody MURDERED this thug and that’s too bad. Floyd used to live in Houston, TX where he committed heinous crimes and then, for some reason, moved to Minnesota, where he continued his chosen lifestyle. GOOD RIDDANCE to this POS!

Well, Dann. I know form personal experience that there are many people who become cops and act like bullies. It’s life. It sucks. They think that intimidation is good policing. Most people in law enforcement are good people, but the enforcers are they ones that give policing a bad name. I agree that thugs and lowlifes will not be missed, and I acknowledge that Mr. Floyd was no saint. But he did not deserve to die over a bogus $20 bill. And the knee on his neck most certainly hastened his demise. Chauvin, obviously, was pretty pleased with himself in that moment. His action hastened a death and he deserves to pay for being a bully

Did anyone see that Sleepy Joe wants a law named after this criminal … To “honor” Floyd with a police reform bill?” Isn’t that just peachy? Name a law after a life-long criminal who did terrible things to his victims. I called the White House earlier today and got to speak with one of Sleepy’s aides and read the riot act to him. He and I went to high school together, so I know him. Sleepy also said that Floyd “sacrificed” his life for justice. OMG! What else will these idiot liberals put out there?

LOVEABLE! In case you have cognitive problems due to your advanced age, Police are OFFICERS OF THE LAW. Sorry to surprise you with that statement! Police deal with criminals according to their training and what the law specifies. Maybe the next time, someone breaks into your house. IF you remember, then call A RAPPER!

Rose Del Vecchio Apr 21, 2021 - 7:13 pm

The California Police Chiefs Association should STOP PLACATING CRIMINALS! Officer Chauvin helped get another scumbag criminal off the face of the earth and we should be thankful the POS is gone! He croaked in a hospital 8 hours later. Nobody murdered him so the liberals should STOP LYING! (but they can’t do that because it’s in their DNA!)

You do know that multiple officers testified AGAINST Chauvin during the trial? This isn’t just some convenient democratic hoax like you far Right wingers make everything out to be. Republicanism has seriously become the party of denialism.
