George Floyd’s death was ‘wake-up call’ about systemic racism, Trudeau says

George Floyd’s death was ‘wake-up call’ about systemic racism, Trudeau says

"Without her bravery that prioritized George Floyd's humanity over her own safety, this verdict may not have been possible", he said. Following the trial spanning roughly two weeks, the 12-person jury found him guilty of three crimes - second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter - each of which carries a different maximum prison sentence.

The Trump administration had opened a federal civil rights investigation in the case days after Floyd, a Black man, died last May after Chauvin pressed his knee on his neck for almost nine minutes while he was prone on his stomach.

"Today's outcome in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis does not undo the loss of life", the National Football League said.

The official had direct knowledge of the matter but was not authorized to speak publicly about the upcoming announcement, planned for Wednesday morning.

The announcement comes a day after former officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murder and manslaughter in Floyd's death last May, setting off a wave of relief but also sadness across the country.

The investigation marks a return to increased federal oversight of errant police departments, with a tool the Trump administration used just once in the last four years to examine a small force in MA.


'I know that nothing can fill the void that the loved ones of George Floyd have felt since his death, ' Garland said, in his first comments on the verdict itself.

Chauvin pinned Floyd to the ground, with his knee to his neck, for more than nine minutes, as the 46-year-old struggled to breathe and called out for his mother.

The Justice Department on Friday withdrew a policy put in place during former President Donald Trump's administration that limited the tools the federal government could use to monitor and probe police misconduct.

He is residing in the Administrative Control Unit, "the state's most secure unit", Fitzgerald said.

Firstly, let us lay out some facts of the case. We can´t turn away'.
