On The Mark: One small step for a jury, one giant leap for racial justice

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

PHOENIX — Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of murder and manslaughter in the May 25, 2020 death of George Floyd.

Bystander video viewed around the world, and multiple police body cameras, captured Chauvin kneeling on Floyd for nine minutes and 29 seconds in the street outside Cup Foods that night.

He was charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, and Judge Peter Cahill later reinstated a third-degree murder charge against him.
