Watch George Floyd’s family in Houston react to Derek Chauvin trial verdict

Former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin was convicted Tuesday of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, and Floyd’s family in Houston are feeling a sense of relief.

The verdict arrived after about 10 hours of deliberations over two days, and was read late in the afternoon in a city on edge.

    As a member of law enforcement I was very happy to see your family get justice. Take care.

      First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a socialist.

      Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a trade unionist.

      Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Jew.

      Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

      Cops need to start calling out the injustice in its own department instead of pretending to care. Remaining silent of injustice is the same as remaining silent in a Holocaust

      More police officers need to speak out like this

      it’s a shame they only show the bad things officers do, instead of the good ones

      @James Feldman Don’t engage with the snowflakes. Make a comment and leave it there. Ignoring them gives them no platform.

    This family needed this. They needed to hear that this crime was not going to be ignored and that George Floyd’s life was not just another statistic. I cried with them

    Thank y’all so much for sharing this with the world! We’re all crying with you right now. FINALLY Justice has been served! I truly hope and pray that this will set a standard for future cases of police brutality.

    You can see the one in the purple shirt really resembles George a lot. So glad for them

    I feel terrible for this family for no longer having George in their lives but also feel so happy for them to get the justice deserved ❤

      @03 Baby Tim Exactly and the cop was arrested for him a counterfeit bill. I mean yes it’s a crime but it’s not like George was a murderer or a rapist. The cop didn’t need to take it to such an hateful and violent extreme. Hopefully, he will get the help he needs in prison and George’s family can find some peace.

      He had been resisting arrest prior to being put on the ground it took 3 officers to restraint him

    So happy for the monumental verdict …May your family have peace and know that many people around the world stand with you …Rest in eternal peace George Floyd…

      He wasn’t an angel 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • No Name says:

      Floyd said he couldn’t breathe LONG before he was pinned to the ground. People need to watch the entire video from the officers body camera. The entre event was over 25 minutes long, NOT 9 minutes.

      The racists win the unjust verdict but only because of continually playing the victim, deceiving the hearts of good people. It’s a sad day in America when someone is convicted of murder because of their skin color.

    • CueLash says:

      @No Name Nice angle, but it doesn’t work when people murder other people. If someone says they can’t breathe even before being placed in handcuffs, it’s not instantaneously indicative of someone on drugs. It could EASILY be the intense stress placed on an individual during an intense event like this one. Even IF your imaginary angle worked in this situation, if someone is saying that they’re having trouble breathing, why intentionally kneel on their neck? None of your points work in this regard. Please locate more chromosomes.

    • Lando says:

      @CueLash exactly. Look how hard they try to make you focus on Floyd instead of the studying police officer. This is the conservative way though – focus on the person and not the actions.

    This brings tears to my eyes. I am so happy they got justice but nothing will bring George Floyd back. Very bittersweet and very amazing moment for his family.
