It’s good news for the black community in America and everywhere! Justice does exist.

Derek Chauvin has been convicted on all charges in the death of George Floyd.
Former Minneapolis police officer who was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter has been found guilty of all three charges.

If you can’t quite remember, the name George Floyd or the uproar of the #Blacklivesmatter movement might ring a bell.

Yes, the trial has finally ended. Justice has been served, and maybe just maybe George Floyd will rest easy now.

George Floyd’s brother Philonise Floyd said the guilty verdict in Derek Chauvin’s trial was “so much of a relief” after spending night after night awake and concerned about the outcome of the case.

“But today I won’t get that time to sleep, because I’m going to stay up and I’m going to celebrate because this is a day of celebration. I’m happy, man,” —Philonise Floyd

Derek Chauvin in court

Meanwhile, Wearing a mask inside the Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis, Chauvin had no apparent reaction to the guilty verdict. Afterward, his bail was revoked and he was placed in handcuffs and removed from the court through a side door.

Almost as if he was oblivious of what was going on. Because apparently, Chauvin faces up to 40 years in prison for second-degree murder, up to 25 years for third-degree murder, and up to 10 years for second-degree manslaughter. That’s about an entire 85 years if we’re adding correctly.
