Sandra Bernhard posted: ‘Should have been 40 years #GeorgeFloyd he is without remorse a stone cold murderer end of discussion #derekchauvin is devoid of emotion.’
She added on Instagram: ‘Maximum sentence #georgefloyd sentencing he’s never said a damn word #derekchauvin is an empty soul who destroyed a mans life and his family 22 1/2 years should have been 40.’
Meanwhile, legendary Star Trek actor George Takei, 84, shared: ‘I want 40 years for Chauvin.
‘George Floyd’s family already got a life sentence handed to them when Chauvin murdered him.’
Before Chauvin was sentenced, victim impact statements were read from Floyd’s seven-year-old daughter Gianna, his brothers Terrence and Philonise and his nephew Brandon Williams.
Gianna said: ‘’I ask about him all the time. I was asking how did my dad get hurt. I want to play with him.’
In addition to his jail sentence, Chauvin is banned from being in possession of a gun, ammunition or explosives for the rest of his life and must register as a predatory offender.
He had faced 12 and a half years in prison but this increased as the second charge he was convicted of, second-degree murder, carries a charge of up to 40 years in prison.
The judge wrote in his sentencing: ‘Mr. Chauvin, rather than pursuing the MPD mission, treated Mr. Floyd without respect and denied him the dignity owed to all human beings and which he certainly would have extended to a friend or neighbor.’
