In examination of the turnout of event, and the immediate action of wife of the former Minneapolis police officer to file for a divorce, there is a lot to be said about the character of the former Minneapolis police officer.

Maya Santamaria, the former owner of El Nuevo Rodeo club in Minneapolis where Officer Derek Chauvin had worked for 17 years had this to say:

“What I am certain of is how aggressive Officer Derek Chauvin became when the club hosted events that drew a mainly black clientele, responding to fights by taking out his mace and spraying the crowd, a tactic she told him was unjustified “overkill.

“He would mace everyone instead of apprehending the people who were fighting, he would call backup. The next thing you would know, there would five or six squad cars.

“I told him I thought this is unnecessary to be pepper-sprayed. The knee-jerk reaction of being afraid, it seemed overkill,” Santamaria said.

“It was a concern and I did voice my opinion, but police officers have a way of justifying what they do.”
