A trial is underway for Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer who is charged in the death of George Floyd — a death that sparked outrage across the nation and demands for police reform.
Chauvin, who is white, pressed his knee against Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes during an arrest in May. In widely seen cell phone videos, Chauvin can be seen holding the position even as Floyd cried “I can’t breathe” and his body went limp.
Chauvin is charged with unintentional second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter.
