Cop Who Killed George Floyd Was His Co-Worker Of 17 Years
That could make it a premeditated murder!
New developments have emerged in the killing of George Floyd! The United States is outraged at his horrific death, and Minneapolis is burning because of the riots. But, there’s more to this story. The Minneapolis City Councillor, Andrea Jenkins, says that the officer who killed George Floyd was his co-worker of 17 years!
George Floyd and his killer were co-workers!
In a startling revelation by Andrea Jenkins on MSNBC, she revealed that George Floyd and the police officer Derek Chauvin, who killed him, were co-workers for 17 years! She explains that the two worked together at a restaurant in the city:
George Floyd worked at that restaurant, so did Officer Chauvin. They were both bouncers at that restaurant for seventeen years. So Officer Chauvin…he knew George,…they were co-workers.
It does sound like tabloid news at first. However, this was later confirmed by Maya Santamaria, who is the owner of that restaurant, named “‘El Nuevo Rodeo”. she told KSTP-TV that:
Chauvin was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open. They (Floyd and Chauvin) were working together at the same time, it’s just that Chauvin worked outside and the security guards were inside.
Moreover, the really startling confession by Santamaria was that she knew Derek Chauvin had a bad temper. She explained:
He sometimes had a real short fuse and he seemed afraid. When there was an altercation he always resorted to pulling out his mace and pepper-spraying everybody right away, even if I felt it was unwarranted.
This news alters the narrative of the tragedy completely!
How does this news affect the case?
Firstly, if it is firmly established that Derek Chauvin knew George Floyd, it could mean that it was premeditated murder. And that is what many Twitter users thought too, like this one:
premeditated, this shit was literally premeditated https://t.co/97VCa7jPLE

This means that George Floyd wasn’t just a victim of police brutality, but murdered with premeditated intentions! That completely changes the dynamics of the case. Therefore, it’s important to see how this information is dealt with by the courts if Derek Chauvin is prosecuted.
The video of George Floyd being killed by Officer Chauvin, and his voice screaming “I can’t breathe” is hard to forget. Many celebrities including LeBron James, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and others spoke with outrage against George Floyd’s killing. This case will indeed by the center of attention for quite some time.
