Derek Chauvin Back in Same Prison Where He Was Stabbed 22 Times by a Fellow Inmate

Jesse O'Neill, New York Post, December 4, 2023

Killer ex-cop Derek Chauvin is out of a hospital and back in the prison where he was stabbed 22 times by a Black Lives Matter-inspired inmate the day after Thanksgiving.

Chauvin, the 47-year-old former Minneapolis cop convicted of murdering George Floyd in 2020, was returned to the Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, Arizona, despite his family’s fears for his safety there, his attorney, Gregory Erickson, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.


Chauvin’s family “is very concerned about the facility’s capacity to protect Derek from further harm” and “they remain unassured that any changes have been made to the faulty procedures that allowed Derek’s attack to occur in the first place,” the attorney said.

John Turscak is charged with attempted murder for the attack on Chauvin, which he said he carried out on Black Friday in symbolic solidarity with Black Lives Matter {snip}
