Derek Chauvin found guilty of all three charges in the murder of George Floyd
“A Minnesota jury found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty Tuesday on charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the May 2020 killing of George Floyd. Jurors announced their final verdict after approximately 10 hours of deliberation. Sentencing will take place in eight weeks and Chauvin will be held without bail until that time.”

Vox Populi Resists@vox_n_thecosmos Justice is done. Let’s make sure this is only the BEGINNING. We shall not tolerate murderers masquerading as public servants whose job is to protect & serve.

K. Travis Ballie@KTravisBallie George Floyd’s girlfriend, Courteney Ross, just said it best on national television. We have reparations to make, older police murder cases should be re-opened. We need to hold more murderers accountable.
Upworthy@UpworthyDarnella Frazier was a 17-year-old taking her little cousin for snacks – but then she had the courage to film the murder of #georgefloyd. May we always be grateful for the innocent bystanders of the world who stand up for what’s right no matter how helpless or scared they feel.
