Justice for George Floyd.

After jurors deliberated for hours, former cop Derrick Chauvin was found guilty of all three charges. He was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. 

On April 19, the prosecution made their closing arguments. Prosecutor, Steve Schleicher, argued Chauvin “acted with cruelty and indifference unbefitting of a police officer.” He went on to say Chauvin should be convicted of murder in Floyd’s death. Schleicher, described Chauvin as a “police officer who had not followed the department’s policies while making it clear that prosecutors were not criticizing policing as a whole.”

Social media waited patiently for hours for the verdict to be in. See some reactions to Chauvin being found guilty below.
