George Floyd and his killer cop, Derek Chauvin were co-workers at a club
A former Minneapolis club owner disclosed that both George Floyd and the fired police officer in whose custody Floyd died Monday used to work security at her club.
Maya Santamaria told KSTP in Minneapolis that Floyd and Derek Chauvin worked security at El Nuevo Rodeo up to the end of last year. Santamaria said she sold the building, which she owned for 20 years, a few months ago.
Chauvin was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open,” Santamaria told the news station. “They were working together at the same time, it’s just that Chauvin worked outside and the security guards were inside.”
Santamaria said she was unsure if the men knew one another because there were often more than a dozen security officers working at the same time on busy nights.
“My friend sent me (the video) and said, ‘This is your guy who used to work for you,’ and I said, ‘It’s not him.’ And then they did the close-up, and that’s when I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s him,’” Santamaria said. “I didn’t recognize George as one of our security guys because he looked really different lying there like that.”
