Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who held a knee to George Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes before he died, is still eligible for his $1 million-plus retirement pension, even if he’s found guilty on charges of murdering Floyd.
“Neither our Board nor our staff have the discretion to increase, decrease, deny or revoke benefits,” a Minnesota Public Employees Retirement Association spokeswoman told CNN.
