Fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin‍ expected to survive after prison attack

The former Minneapolis police officer‍ Derek Chauvin, who was convicted in the ​death of George Floyd, was the target of an assault‍ in a prison in Arizona on‌ Friday, but is expected ⁣to ​survive, according to officials.

Chauvin, who was‌ sentenced ​to 21 years in ​federal prison and ‌22 ½ years in Minnesota ​state court, is currently being held at the Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson. The attack, which⁤ was carried out by an unidentified‍ inmate, prompted emergency medical services to be called⁤ and Chauvin was rushed to a hospital.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison expressed sadness at the news of the attack ‌and condemned any ⁤violence⁢ against incarcerated individuals. He stated that​ Chauvin, like any other ⁢prisoner, should be able to serve his sentence without fear of⁢ retaliation or violence.

The Bureau⁣ of Prisons confirmed the assault at the Tucson facility, but did not disclose the identity⁢ or condition of the victim ​due to privacy reasons. However, a spokesperson did ⁣confirm that employees followed proper protocol and tried to save the victim’s ‍life.

The death ​of George Floyd in 2020 ignited ⁤global protests against police ‌brutality and​ racism, especially after the release of the video showing Chauvin, a white officer,⁣ kneeling on the⁤ neck of the handcuffed Black man for over nine minutes. ⁤Floyd’s ⁣murder prompted the conviction of Chauvin, who⁤ was found guilty of violating Floyd’s⁣ civil rights and murder in state court.

I am here to deliver some groundbreaking ⁢news to⁤ you about the current⁢ situation of Derek Chauvin, ⁤the‍ former Minneapolis police officer convicted‌ in the death of George Floyd. According to the spokesperson ‌from the Minnesota Attorney General’s office,⁤ Chauvin‌ is expected to survive after an attack in an Arizona ⁢prison⁢ on⁤ Friday.

The Associated Press initially reported on Chauvin’s stabbing and critical injury on Friday.

“It​ is ‌with great ​sadness to hear ‌that Derek Chauvin was the target ⁤of violence,” said Minnesota Attorney⁣ General Keith Ellison in a statement Saturday. “He was rightfully convicted of his crimes and, as with⁤ any individual in custody,⁤ should be​ allowed⁤ to serve‍ his sentence without fear of retaliation or harm.”

Ellison⁢ did not disclose further details about the incident.

A statement released on Sunday​ by Brian Evans, ⁣spokesperson for the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office, confirmed Chauvin’s condition: ⁢”We have‍ received information that he ⁢is expected⁣ to recover.”

Currently serving a federal sentence of 21 years for‌ violating Floyd’s ‌civil rights, as well as a concurrent 22 ½ years ⁢for his murder conviction in Minnesota state court, Chauvin’s life took a dangerous turn in the Federal Correctional Institution‍ in ‌Tucson.

The⁣ Federal Bureau of Prisons verified that an anonymous inmate‍ was assaulted at⁢ the facility and ⁤that employees​ quickly sprang⁢ into action, taking the victim to the hospital ⁤with the help⁢ of emergency medical services. The Bureau of Prisons refused to reveal the victim’s identity ⁤or medical condition, citing privacy laws.

Floyd’s death ‍in 2020 resulted in widespread outrage ⁤and protests around the ⁢globe against‍ police brutality and racial discrimination, after ⁢Chauvin, a white officer, pinned the handcuffed black man to the ground for more than nine minutes, ultimately killing him, all‍ of which was captured on video ⁤by a bystander.
