The State v. Derek Chauvin

Apr 03, 05:17 PM
The world remains on edge questioning whether the current justice system can achieve Justice for George Floyd by convicting the police officers responsible for his death.

The inequalities that have existed for Black people in the U.S. for over 400 years reached a boiling point in the wake of the killing of George Floyd. The world witnessed Mr. Floyd plead for his life while Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee into Mr. Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes.

Mr. Floyd’s death made the world stop and take a serious look at racial injustice in this country and the urgent need for criminal justice and police reform. An estimated 15-26 million protestors took to the streets to proclaim that “Black Lives Matter”, making it the largest civil rights movement in history. The world remains on edge questioning whether the current justice system can achieve #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd by convicting the police officers responsible for his death.
