Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty on all counts. The verdict was reached a little after 10 hours of deliberation by the jury. The former cop at the center of the death of George Floyd which sparked a whole summer of riots last year was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. Sentencing is in eight weeks but as of now, he’ll most likely be spending the rest of his life in prison. Will there be an appeal? Yes. Was Chauvin overcharged? Sure. Was there jury intimidation with the local press pretty much doxxing members of the pool? Yes. That will be argued in due time. For now, Chauvin is slated to be handed down a very lengthy prison sentence.
