      Derek Chauvin has been sentenced to 22 and a half years in prison for the murder of George Floyd.

      With a chanting crowd outside the downtown Minneapolis courtroom, the ruling just now by Minnesota Judge Peter Cahill comes a year and month after the ex-cop killed Floyd in the street by cruelly pressing his knee on the man’s throat for almost 10 minutes.

      Based on routine practices, Chauvin will serve at least 2/3 of his sentence before any hope of parole – which translates into about 15 years.

      The murder by the 19-year veteran cop occurred as three other officers looked on and Floyd exclaimed he couldn’t breathe. Yet another blatant killing of an African-American by law enforcement, the horrific event galvanized the nation to take to the streets in protest and to put a glaring spotlight on the police brutality and systematic racism in America and among cops.

      15 years is a long time. I wonder if his solitary confinement guards (see, J. Epstein) could “fall asleep” … one can wonder.
