  • Politicians, elected leaders, community leaders and celebrities join scores of ordinary citizens in celebrating the jury verdict. With the exception of Dinesh D'Souza, of course.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty on all three counts in the murder trial of George Floyd, whose death led to months of demonstrations against police brutality last summer. Chauvin, 45, was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He faces 40 years in jail when he will be sentence two months time.
