The jury in Minnesota has found Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts of killing George Floyd. Justice has been served.
Bail is revoked. Chauvin goes to prison. Sentencing will take place in 8 weeks. What a relief for George Floyd’s family and for everyone. This should send a message to the police everywhere that extreme force with Black people will not be tolerated.
Chauvin could get as many as 40 years for unintentional second degree MURDER. Also guilty of third degree murder and second degree manslaughter.
Here's a rundown of what the prosecution has to prove to convict Chauvin of three charges: pic.twitter.com/RbQnh4mXol
