Disturbing Details Emerge from Brutal Stabbing of Derek Chauvin

A former gang member, who is currently incarcerated and has previously acted as an FBI informant, was charged on Friday with attempted murder. Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted in the murder of George Floyd, was brutally stabbed by him 22 times in the federal prison attack.

According to reports, the assailant, identified as 52-year-old John Turscak, carried out the attack with an improvised knife in the prison’s law library.

Turscak, who is serving a 30-year sentence for crimes committed while a member of the Mexican Mafia gang, said that the attack was premeditated, driven by Chauvin’s high-profile status as the officer convicted for George Floyd’s death.

Chauvin, who was transferred to the Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, Arizona, was supposed to be serving his sentence in a secure and controlled environment.

When interviewed by FBI agents following the incident, Turscak explained that his attack on Chauvin during Black Friday was meant as a symbolic gesture linking to the Black Lives Matter movement, which gained significant momentum after Floyd’s passing.

He also mentioned the “Black Hand” emblem, commonly associated with the Mexican Mafia, according to statements from the prosecutors.

Turscak faces multiple charges including assault with intent to commit murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, and assault causing serious bodily harm. Both the attempted murder charge and the assault with intent to commit murder charge carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison each.

Court records do not list an attorney for Turscak. He has a history of representing himself in various legal proceedings from prison according to the Associated Press. Following the stabbing incident Turscak was transferred to a nearby federal penitentiary in Tucson, where he was still detained as of Friday, according to inmate records.

After the stabbing on Black Friday, Chauvin’s mother Carolyn Pawlenty, was alerted through media reports. She said that she was not contacted by any prison officials.

“How the hell do these news agencies know and his own mother doesn’t even know? And that [prison] has an emergency contact number [for me],” Pawlenty said, adding that she is “worried and scared” about her son’s condition. “I can’t even think what to say. I haven’t been to bed and made a path in my kitchen and living room floor by pacing.”

Chauvin’s attorney, Bill Mohrman, said he attempted to contact the Bureau of Prisons on behalf of his client but has not heard back from the agency.

Gregory M. Erickson, one of Chauvin’s attorneys, slammed the Arizona prison for lack of transparency. “It appears to be indicative of a poorly run facility and indicates how Derek’s assault was allowed to happen,” Erickson said in a statement on Saturday.

“How the family members who are in charge of Derek’s decisions regarding his personal medical care and his emergency contact were not informed after his stabbing further indicates the institution’s poor procedures and lack of institutional control,” he added.

Prison staff were forced to perform life-saving measures before Chauvin was hospitalized, according to the Bureau of Prisons. Chauvin’s condition was since listed as “stable.”

The Supreme court recently refused to hear Chauvin’s appeal of the 2021 conviction, who argued that the jury was biased against him.

    Two bigger screw-ups than the Merrick Garland influenced FBI and the prison system, I haven’t seen. That’s the Biden admin’s bureaucracy at work. They did get the job done on Epstein in NY, but they sure did screw up their assassination attempt on Chauvin in Arizona. And then they mucked up their cover-up attempt. They couldn’t keep word from getting out that the deed was mucked up and Chauvin survived those 22 bladed strikes. Then they started throwing around smoke screens like BLM and the Mexican mafia to keep outsiders guessing. That’s the media’s participation in the Left’s miasma of black deeds: provide obfuscating cover for the govt guilty. Chauvin is a marked man, and unless he gets real protection or gets out soon, he will be buried in that Arizona desert.
    The Left is intent on keeping Black vigilantism stirred up, and Chauvin is their next target. BVs getting passes from Soros-funded DAs for mugging and murdering whites at will, looting stores in organized fashion, and dealing drugs uninterrupted on most any street corner they choose, Chauvin’s body thrown down on the prison’s doorstep will be the viral-thread media spark for antifa’s next great rallying cry.
    That is the leitmotif the Obama-Biden-Blinken junta is seeking to spread. Jail Trump, slay Chauvin, and keep funding Hamas to harass Israel into a military and foreign policy imbroglio to render their decision-making indeterminable and their actions impotent, leaving Israel vulnerable prey for their mutinous Sunni neighbors. Just like the Soros-funded OBB junta, harassing our establishment politicians into cultural and political imbroglios, rendering their directions indeterminable and their actions impotent, leaving what is left of our fading Middle class vulnerable to a mutinous woke movement by the fringe Left.
    I don’t think anybody would mistake Chauvin for an arch-duke, but Chauvin’s death could provide the same kind of spark that Franz Ferdinand’s demise ignited, into a nation-wide if not world-wide super-power conflagration.
