FORMER MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER DEREK CHAUVIN WAS FOUND GUILTY ON ALL THREE COUNTS AGAINST HIM IN THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD.

FLOYD WAS ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY USING COUNTERFEIT BILLS WHEN FORMER POLICE OFFICER CHAUVIN TRIED TO PIN HIM DOWN WITH HIS KNEE ON HIS NECK FOR NINE MINUTES.

IKE RAYFORD, SIOUX CITY’S NAACP PRESIDENT, SAYS JUSTICE WAS SERVED BY THE VERDICT:

CHAUVIN1 OC…….COMMON SENSE. :20

RAYFORD SAYS WITH THAT VERDICT, IT’S NOW TIME FOR EVERYONE TO MOVE FORWARD IN A POSITIVE WAY:

CHAUVIN2 OC………FOR THAT RESET. :28

FLOYD’S DEATH LED TO A PUSH FOR POLICE REFORM, AND RAYFORD SAYS THOSE CHANGES HAVE ALSO TAKEN PLACE LOCALLY:

CHAUVIN3 OC………FROM THIS. :20

THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD FUELED MONTHS OF PROTESTS AND RIOTS, WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DAMAGE DONE TO MINNEAPOLIS BUSINESSES AND PROPERTY.

THERE WAS SIMILAR OUTRAGE IN OTHER MAJOR CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
