Attorney General Neronha issues statement following Derek Chauvin verdict
“The killing of George Floyd by police last summer was a heartbreaking loss for his family and resulted in pain and anger across the nation. The ensuing conversations and protests concerning our criminal justice system were raw and necessary, as we begin to address flaws in and reforms to that system.
“At the same time, the criminal justice system as it presently exists needed to deliver justice for Mr. Floyd and his family. That has now happened with today’s verdict. I congratulate Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and his team, and applaud their strong work in prosecuting this ongoing case.”
