Evidently, Al Sharpton doesn’t believe police officers charged with crimes are innocent until proven guilty. Sharpton has already convicted former police officer Derek Chauvin of murdering George Floyd.
“Al Sharpton called for former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s conviction on Sunday night at a prayer vigil ahead of the murder trial in connection with George Floyd’s death,” according to Breitbart.
“Sharpton hosted a prayer vigil the night before Chauvin’s trial was scheduled to begin, where Sharpton and Floyd’s family called for Chauvin to be held accountable for his actions, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.
“‘We must show with this case that a police officer must face the law just like anybody else,’ Sharpton said.
“Floyd’s brother, Philonise, added that the jury should find Chauvin guilty.
“‘I have faith that he will get convicted. Just like everybody who’s seen that video because the video is the proof,’ Philonise Floyd said.”
