President Biden and Vice President Harris on Tuesday America has a "long history of systemic racism," calling it a "stain on the nation's soul," while saying the guilty verdict in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin "can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America," but one that is "too rare" to deliver "basic accountability" for Black Americans.
A panel of jurors found Chauvin guilty on Tuesday on all three charges in connection with the May 2020 death of George Floyd—the Black man in Minnesota who died after he was seen on video – handcuffed – saying "I can't breathe" as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd's neck.
Floyd’s death sparked nationwide protests last spring and summer over police brutality against minorities and systemic racism.
Chauvin, 45, was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. After the jury announced the verdict, Chauvin’s bail was immediately revoked and he was led away with hands cuffed behind his back.
