Motive and Coverup: George Floyd and Derek Chavin ‘bumped heads’ at night club: NY Post


VT had reported this earlier.  Floyd and Chauvin were both “bouncers” at the same club, with an employee, right from day one of this nightmare event, reporting this although the media chose to cover it up and no investigation was made.

This would have gone to motive and possibly made this First Degree Murder.

As there is no “fake $20 bill” and the call and arrest seem to be fake also, this may well have been a “hit.”

NY Post: George Floyd and Derek Chauvin reportedly “bumped heads” while working security together at a nightclub years before their fatal encounter.

A one-time co-worker at El Nuevo Rodeo on Lake Street in south Minneapolis revealed the duo’s purported shaky history in an interview with CBS Evening News.

The tension, David Pinney told the outlet, “has a lot to do with Derek being extremely aggressive within the club with some of the patrons, which was an issue.”

The owner of the club, Maya Santamaria, had previously told local outlet KSTP that Floyd and Chauvin overlapped shifts on popular music nights within the last year.

Santamaria said Chauvin stood guard outside, acting as the nightspot’s “off-duty police” for 17 years, while Floyd worked inside.

She also said she was not sure if Floyd and Chauvin knew each other — but Pinney was confident they did.

Pinney told CBS that Chauvin “knew him … pretty well,” referring to Floyd.

Chauvin, a former Minneapolis cop, has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the May 25 death of Floyd.

Chauvin initially was charged with third-degree murder, but the charges were upgraded after an outcry from Floyd’s family and other supporters. The Floyd family attorney, Benjamin Crump, had even called for first-degree murder charges since learning the two worked together.

Before the charges were upgraded from third- to second-degree murder, he had told CBS News that “we believe [Chauvin] knew who George Floyd was.”

  1. Memo to police, killing the people is not on your long list of things you should be doing.
    Arresting press is not on the list, and evading justice and behaving like criminals is not either.

    So, send it up chain,…the squeeze will be in the middle. Police your own is the best option.
    Lean on those who direct you to lean on the people, is the wise choice.

  2. I read that the owner said that the nights they worked the same shift was also “optional clothing night” they called it, so in other words a strip club.
    Reminds me of Jack Ruby, assassin of Jennifer Jason Lee Harvey Oswald (joke) was always labeled as a “nightclub owner” when in fact he operated mafia strip club in Dallas and all the police got free drinks..
    Floyd sometimes worked as male stripper.
    Chauvin probably killed him over control of drug and prostitute traffic, his “territory” being stepped on…
    Chauvin most probably a pimp as all bouncers at strip clubs are in some way.
    Chauvin knew him and it was a hit.

  3. We know this story in Russia from the very beginning, Jim. Nevertheless, it became a trigger.
