Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was stabbed 22 times in prison by another inmate, identified as John Turscak, who has been charged with attempted murder.

Turscak, a member of the Mexican Mafia prison gang, claimed the attack was a symbolic connection to the Black Lives Matter movement. He purposefully chose “Black Friday” to symbolize the BLM group.

Turscak stabbed Chauvin at around 12:30 p.m. on the day after Thanksgiving and was stopped by prison guards who subdued him with pepper spray. (Trending: Another Major Company Goes Woke And Goes Broke)

Turscak was an FBI informant in 1997 and provided investigators information about gang activity in Los Angeles. He helped prosecute 40 gang members.

Chauvin’s safety has been a concern, and his lawyer has advocated for keeping him away from other inmates.

Chauvin has filed appeals on his conviction, arguing that the jury did not have access to certain autopsy evidence.

The prison’s handling of Chauvin’s security is being questioned in light of the attack.

Political commentator Tucker Carlson recently pointed to former Hennepin County prosecutor Amy Sweasy who claimed George Floyd’s autopsy showed “no medical evidence of asphyxia or strangulation.”

Carlson insisted that Floyd was “not murdered,” but “died instead of what we used to call natural causes — which in his case would include decades of drug use, as well as the fatal concentration of fentanyl that was in his system on his final day.”
