Opening statements were made today in the murder trial of the former Minneapolis police officer charged with killing George Floyd. Derek Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter for the death of the unarmed man, who died in May 2020 after Chauvin knelt on his neck for several minutes.
Floyd’s arrest–for allegedly using a counterfeit bill at a grocery store–was caught on police bodycam video and sparked worldwide protests against police brutality.
