The Chauvin Verdict

“The senseless murder of George Floyd served as yet another reminder that we still have a long way to go to live up to our nation’s highest ideals,” … “Justice has now been served, and we hope that this verdict will bring some measure of peace to the Floyd family and the community.”
– Governor Larry Hogan (R-MD)

“Here’s the truth about racial injustice,” … “It is not just a Black America problem or a people of color problem. It is a problem for every American. It is keeping us from fulfilling the promise of liberty and justice for all, and it is holding our nation back from realizing our full potential.”
– Kamala Harris (D)

“While unthinkable things happen, our country is blessed to have a justice system where 12 everyday Americans from different backgrounds can come together, examine the facts and evidence, and deliver justice. We are a blessed country.” – Nikki Haley (R)

“Today, a jury did the right thing. But true justice requires much more.” – Barak Obama (D)

“I think our justice system is getting more just, I’m thankful for the verdict and certainly thought it was murder,” … “there is more work to be done to ensure the bad apples do not define all officers – the vast majority of whom put on the uniform each day with integrity and servant hearts. We must all come together to help repair the tenuous relationship between law enforcement and Black and minority Americans.”  – Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)

“Hopefully this is the beginning of a turning point in our country, where people who have seen this trauma over and over again will know that we have equal protection under the law.”
– Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA)
