How Prosecutors Like Amy Klobuchar Hijacked the System, Enabled Police Abuse

George Floyd died of strangulation after Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck. This same officer had a litany of complaints filed against him, but the District Attorney, Amy Klobuchar, failed to take any disciplinary action against him.

Klobuchar refused to prosecute officers during her tenure as district attorney; instead, she deferred matters to a grand jury. A mother whose son was shot and killed by the police wrote a letter to Klobuchar begging her to prosecute the case against the officer herself. She never responded to the letter, and she refused to prosecute the case herself.
