Officers protect fired cop Derek Chauvin’s home after George Floyd death

Droves of police officers blocked more than 100 protesters from the Minnesota home of the now-former Minneapolis cop who pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd before he died, new video shows.

A profanity-laced 2-minute clip shows a line of officers late Wednesday protecting the Oakdale home of Derek Chauvin, a 19-year department vet who was fired Tuesday along with three cops involved in the incident that has sparked national outrage.

“Look how many f–king people are defending this killer’s house,” a woman identified in reports as Chloe Jo Sherrill repeatedly says in the footage. “Look how f–king many! Look at this s–t! They are defending a murderer’s house.”

One protester near the band of officers in the St. Paul suburb was hit with Mace, according to the video.

“And they’re ready to do it to all the rest of us, too,” Sherrill says. “Why does it look like they’re gearing up for war? Because they’re scared. We are angry and they are scared.”

One of the officers then appeared to run toward Sherrill, prompting her to drop her phone and run off, video shows.
