But he declared that "it's not enough". "I'm exhausted of seeing a white male can go into a location with an AR rifle and shoot up and kill everybody and live to get arrested, but African Americans are fighting to just survive a traffic stop and be unarmed", Dr. Holt told KGUN9. The former officer was seen on video kneeling on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes as Floyd pled for air. Beyond that, the president said, the entire country must confront hatred to "change hearts and minds as well as laws and policies".

He said in the close to 11 months since George's death, he's heard from people around the world telling him, "We won't be able to breathe until you're able to breathe". "We can't let those words die with him". We have to keep hearing those words. "We can't turn away".

"As public defenders, we know there is rarely real justice or healing that comes from the criminal courts", Baur said.

"Justice for Black America is justice for all of America". "It is holding our nation back from reaching our full potential".

"A measure of justice isn't the same as equal justice. The murder of Mr. George Floyd was senseless and tragic and it shook our city, state and country".

George Floyd murder trial: Jury finds Derek Chauvin guilty of murder.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson travelled to Minneapolis for the verdict, and said there was relief but no celebrating "because the killing continues".

Windsor hit by powercut before Prince Philip funeral
The Archbishop of Canterbury, who will preside over the service with the Dean of Windsor , was seen entering the Chapel. Coronavirus restrictions in England mean only 30 people , socially distanced, are allowed to attend funerals.

The former Minneapolis police officer is facing up to 40 years in prison for the killing of George Floyd.

The Congressional Black Caucus, gathered to watch the verdicts handed down, then came to the cameras, with Chair Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, telling reporters that while the group "certainly" agrees with the guilty verdicts, this is "just a first step".

Tzun says the Chauvin verdict is only the beginning of a American racial reckoning. "I think people had gotten fed up at that point. I wouldn't say that unless the jury was sequestered now".

The intersection of race and law enforcement has always been contentious in the United States, underscored by a series of deadly incidents involving white police officers and Black people in a number of American cities in recent years.

Biden, on Tuesday night said that Congress should act: "it shouldn't take a whole year to get this done". But Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill threw out that count in October, citing the word "others" - plural - in that phrase.

"I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that's disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function", he said shortly after sending the jury to begin deliberations. Will the verdict stand up through all the appeals that are sure to come? "We're going to get a lot more done" on police reform. His defense attorney, Eric Nelson, followed Chauvin out of the courtroom without comment.

"If the Minnesota Supreme Court were to reverse Noor's third-degree murder conviction, that would nearly certainly invalidate Chauvin's as well", Sampsell-Jones said. "For being there to call out to your mom, how heartbreaking was that", Pelosi said during the news conference. "This is a monumental day in many ways, in my opinion". "... Still, I do feel a little hope with this verdict. It's a vindication of justice in America". She had used her cellphone to make a video depicting Floyd's excruciating ordeal, images that catalyzed the subsequent protests.
