A VIDEO captures moments of heckling that Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin faced while departing a court hearing on Friday.
The ex-cop charged in black man George Floyd’s death was escorted by several sheriff’s deputies out of a building and past a fence.
As Chauvin, clad in an orange jumpsuit, made his way into a black car, people could be heard yelling expletives at him.
“Coward!” “A**!” and “B**ch!” were some of the words launched at Chauvin.
The shouts continued as the black car with Chauvin drove away with a Henneppin County sheriff’s SUV driving in front and two behind, a video from KMSP shows.
Protesters outside the courthouse also held a “die-in,” lying on the ground for eight minutes and 46 seconds, which was the amount of time that Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck in May.
After Chauvin’s court hearing, lawyers for Floyd’s family spoke at a press conference and pushed back on the defense attorneys’ statements that the black man died of an overdose.
“The only overdoes was an overdose of police force,’ the Floyd family’s lawyer Ben Crump said.
“’The world saw what happened.”
