No surprise: Dereck Chauvin found guilty on all three counts of murder

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Tuesday was found guilty on all three charges related to the death of George Floyd in 2020. Chauvin was found guilty of second- and third-degree murder, as well as second-degree manslaughter.

    The jury had deliberated for less than a day. The media reporting confirmed that the jury submitted no notes to the court to ask questions or to demand to hear any testimony again. It appears that they were certain about the verdict. The demographics of the jury were rigged against Chauvin since it did not reflect the racial demographic of the community.

    Curiously, the trial was not moved to another location either. This would have prevented another round of destructive mass rioting. The city had to brace itself against extreme violence once again. A black Democratic Californian Representative Maxine Waters had called for riots if Chauvin was found not guilty.

    In comments made just hours after the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murder, President Biden lamented over the “stain” of “systemic racism” in the US.

    “It was a murder in the full light of day and it ripped the blinders off the whole world to see,” Biden said on Tuesday. “Systemic racism is a stain on our nation’s soul.” In April 2019 Biden called on Americans to “change the culture” of white America. “It’s an English jurisprudential culture, a white man’s culture. It’s got to change,” he said, as reported by the Associated Press.

    Biden parroted the Floyd legal team in pressuring Congress to pass the Democrats’ criminal-justice reform bill. “I assured them we’re going to continue to fight for the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act so I can sign the law as quickly as possible,” Biden said.

    The Senate is currently tied 50–50 between Democrats and Republicans, with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote. Democrats have garnered support from ten Republican senators needed to pass the legislation.

    Columnist Paul Craig Roberts had noted earlier that “the American Establishment [was] determined that Chauvin [would] not get a fair trial” since black Americans had been led to believe that Chauvin was a representative of white racism. In a tweet from Ami Horowitz, in which he speaks to black citizens about the verdict, this was confirmed.
