Statement on the Chauvin Trial Verdict

Posted on: April 21, 2021

Yesterday justice was served. In finding Derek Chauvin guilty of manslaughter, second-degree murder and third-degree murder in the death of George Floyd, the jury sent a clear message that police brutality and systemic racism in law enforcement—and all society—must be punished and eradicated in our country. I commend the jury for their decision. It is a step towards accountability and protection for all.
