Officer charged with fatally kneeling on George Floyd's neck posts bond on $1 million bail

Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis police officer facing murder charges in George Floyd's death, posted bond on $1 million bail Wednesday, court records indicate.

"I can confirm he is no longer in our custody," said Sarah Fitzgerald, spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Corrections.
Chauvin was released from Oak Park Heights Correctional Facility, east of Minneapolis, just after 11 a.m., the Hennepin County Jail roster indicates. His release was conditional, according to records, though the specifics were not immediately available.
His next court date is set for March 8, according to a notice of appearance.
It's not clear who paid the bail bond company, or how much. Minnesota law allows bondsmen to charge a maximum of 10% of the bail amount -- in this case, up to $100,000.
The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, which maintains a legal defense fund, did not put up the money, a spokesman said. The Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.
Chauvin faces counts of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's May 25 killing. Video captured Chauvin kneeling on Foyd's neck for almost eight minutes as Floyd told him and three other officers he couldn't breathe.

Wow, no justice for George Floyd. I’m not surprised. His killer gets to go home after murdering George Floyd. George Floyd can’t, because Chauvin stole his life from him. I’m sure all Chauvin’s defenders are happy.
Always smile in the face of adversity. smile

Even cops should be entitled to bail. shrug

Looks like just a normal application of law. His release is conditional. It would have considered flight risk, risk to the public and risk to himself by himself or the public.

.

It does not mean he has been let off. The only real issue here could be if people in similar positions have been denied bail or had this set with harsher conditions or at a higher value. We don't know the conditions and it is hard to know what would be a similar situation and what was decided on bail in that situation.
