"So, Freeman, what's all this about 'other evidence', eh?" asked the Chief as he came through the door. Mike Freeman, county attorney for Hennepin County spun around in his chair and handed over a piece of paper.
"I got this only a few hours before my press conference," said Freeman.
"What is this?" The Chief read it out. "I feel so ashamed of being handcuffed, I will commit suicide under this nice and just policeman's knee, signed George Floyd." He turned it over in his hand. "This is written on office paper, it's got the header and all."
"And? It's a suicide note. The man was obviously suffering from the ordeal."
"We can see that from the video! Wait, what's this... something else written here... 'PS. This isn't my handwriting, I have 3 witnesses to prove it, signed Derek Chauvin'. Oh, well, that's proof enough, then, isn't it!" The Chief screwed up the paper and threw it in the trash bin.
"That's important evidence!"
"You'll need to come up with something better than that," said the Chief.
"How about... an undercover re-location program, we made it look like he died only to relocate him to... Florida."
The Chief shook his head. "Not gonna work."
"Well, how about this?" Freeman passed the Chief a small card. It was Derek Chauvin's KKK membership card. The Chief looked it over and turned the card, revealing an FOP membership number.
"Okay, that looks good enough. Thanks, Freeman, we'll see what we can do."
