“They were working together at the same time.”
A strange news on the murder of George Floyd was reported in the night of Thursday. A former club owner who is from south Minneapolis revealed that both Floyd and Chauvin worked as security guards in her club at the same time.
The former owner who revealed this was Maya Santamaria and she stated that both of them; Floyd and Chauvin worked the same security shift at El Nuevo Rodeo club on Lake Street, before it was sold out a few months back.
“Chauvin was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open. They were working together at the same time, it’s just that Chauvin worked outside and the security guards were inside,” Santamaria said to KSTP.
And also Santamaria stated that she’s unable to assure that both knew each other well as there was a hub of security guards who worked at the particular club at one night.
Getting to know about the early relationship between them is indeed an essential part in crime investigation as they worked in overlapping shifts and as one ended up killing the other.
If this isn’t the first meeting of Floyd and Chauvin, there might be another deep secret inside this murder. That could potentially mean that there was a long story behind this.
If Chauvin is made true the case will create the difference between a muder charge and a manslaughter charge.
As no other evidence was found regarding this crime, the detail which was provided by Santamaria is extremely important even though it is a total coincidence. This has made a serious suspicion about this case.
According to Santamaria, she hasn’t realized both Floyd and Chauvin as her employees until she was informed by one of her friends.
“My friend sent me (the video) and said this is your guy who used to work for you and I said, ‘It’s not him.’ And then they did the closeup and that’s when I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s him.’ I didn’t recognize George as one of our security guys because he looked really different lying there like that,” Santamaria stated.
Although the people around the world protests against the death of Floyd calling Chauvin to be charged with murder no formal charges were made against Chauvin plus the other officers who were present there at the moment.
For Floyd’s family, firing the officers from the police force wasn’t enough at all. The city Mayor too agreed with the statement of Floyd’s family.
Jacob Frey, the Minneapolis Mayor has called for criminal charges against Chauvin who knelt on Floyd’s neck until his death.
“I’ve wrestled with, more than anything else over the last 36 hours, one fundamental question: Why is the man who killed George Floyd not in jail. If you had done it, or I had done it, we would be behind bars right now,” Frey stated.
However, the mayor declined to present his ideas on the type of charge which should be given to the murderer of Floyd. Yet, many legal representatives have already commented that Chauvin is likely to have the manslaughter charges due to the content of videos against him.
