Former police officer Derek Chauvin, indicted for causing George Floyd’s death during his arrest last May, was found guilty of all three charges by the jury. Organisations with ties to US stock market speculator George Soros were quick to take action after the verdict was pronounced.
On 25 May last year, Derek Chauvin kept his knee on the neck of George Floyd, an African American man, for minutes during his arrest, which caused Floyd’s death, the prosecutors said. The autopsy report published later revealed that the victim had suffered from heart disease and Covid-19 infection caused by the new strain of the virus, and that he had plenty of drugs in his system at the time of his death. Floyd’s death was followed by months of rioting across the United States. The jury found the former police officer guilty of all three charges against him, and he could face up to 40 years in jail.
Following the verdict, Alexander Soros, George Soros’s son, took to Twitter to share a post:
Soros’s son, as deputy chair of the Open Society Foundations, also issued a statement to welcome the verdict.
In conclusion of the statement, he stressed that “we will continue to support efforts to fundamentally restructure relations between governments and the communities they serve to reimagine law enforcement to reduce the damage policing has done and help communities heal.”
It is no coincidence that Alexander Soros takes pleasure in the conviction of the officer.
In October 2016, an opinion article was published on the Open Society Foundations website titled Lets Reduce, Not Reform, Policing in America.
Last year, an article demanding the abolition of police appeared in the columns of the New York Times, a US paper with links to Soros. Mariame Kaba, the author, voiced her opinion that the best way to reduce police violence was to minimise its power and rethink its budget.
Kaba is also one of George Soros’s footsoldiers. According to OSF’s website, she enjoyed the support of the foundation back in 2016. The description suggests that Kaba had partnered “with organizations to support and advocate for women (trans and nontrans) who are survivors of sexual and physical violence but who also live under threat of arrest and incarceration.”
Anti-police sentiments have reached unprecedented levels in the US following George Floyd’s death….
However, activists who can be linked to Soros continue to demand the introduction of anti-police reforms. Following Floyd’s death, there was great pressure in Minneapolis to reorganise policing, with many demanding the abilition of the force. Tensions have remained high ever since.
As of last week, Yes 4 Minneapolis, a coalition of community groups, had collected 20,000 signatures on a petition that’s similar to the council members’ proposal. According to a campaign finance report, the group received 500 thousand dollars from the Open Society Policy Center, which has ties to billionaire George Soros.
