Floyd’s family reaction

“We are able to breathe again.”

That’s the reaction of George Floyd’s family, after the former police officer accused in his death was convicted of all charges against him.

A Minneapolis jury spent ten hours considering the evidence, before finding Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

Floyd died after Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost ten minutes, as he was arrested over allegations he tried to pass a fake 20-dollar bill.

President Joe Biden says the verdict can be a major step forward but only if governments make efforts to address racism and reform police forces.
