Derek Chauvin prison stabber worked for FBI

A former FBI informant who is one of Derek Chauvin’s fellow inmates was charged by federal prosecutors Friday with attempted murder after allegedly stabbing Chauvin in the name of Black Lives Matter.

Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer sentenced to 20 years in prison in the highly controversial George Floyd case, was stabbed 22 times at a Tuscon, Arizona, penitentiary library last Friday, requiring prison staff to perform “life-saving” measures on Chauvin. John Turscak, 52, now faces multiple assault charges and inflicting serious bodily injury with an “improvised knife,” Fox News reported.

Turscak allegedly told investigators that he had planned the attack for a month and purposefully chose Black Friday as the date for his assault on Chauvin to symbolize the Black Lives Matter movement. The 52-year-old inmate also allegedly said he would’ve killed the ex-Minneapolis cop if corrections officers hadn’t intervened so quickly.

Turscak was sentenced to 30 years in prison in 2001 for committing crimes while working as an FBI informant, according to CBS News. The feds recruited Turscak in 1999 to help them go after members of the Mexican Mafia, which Turscak had admitted to joining in 1990. The FBI informant said he authorized “assaults of individuals for infractions of Mexican Mafia rules” and collected “taxes” from other gangs and drug dealers who wanted protection from the Mexican Mafia as they trafficked narcotics.
