This is an incredible story, and the reporting here is worthy of awards and praise:
Here you have a situation where, because of the notoriety of the prisoner, a decision was made to segregate him from prisoners and guards. Think about that for a moment. They decided to keep Chauvin in a different county altogether. The crime he is accused of was committed in Minneapolis, which is in Hennepin County. Ramsey County, where they decided to jail him, is the next county over.
The decision was based on bigotry and nothing more. They put all of the minority guards on a different floor from Chauvin and then they tried to cover it up.
I feel like I don't know what country I live in anymore. Is this America? Because I can't fucking tell anymore. I really can't.
This is just an amazing detail as well:
