The family of George Floyd has rejoiced over the conviction of Derek Chauvin.

A Former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted by a jury and found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd.

Chauvin faces up to 40 years in prison for second-degree murder, up to 25 years for third-degree murder and up to 10 years for second-degree manslaughter.

Recall that George Floyd died in May 2020 after Chauvin placed his knee on Floyd’s neck while he shouted, “I can’t breathe.”

George Floyd’s brother, Philonise said although it was difficult to be present in the courtroom during the trial and watch how his brother was killed day after day, he knew “my Lord and savior was in there, and George was in there.”

He described the verdict for his brother as justice for African-American people, for people of color, period, in the world.

“This verdict is monumental. This is historic. This is a pivotal moment in history,” he told CNN.

George Floyd’s brother pledged to continue to fight for justice, stressing that his work for justice had only just begun.

“Rev. Al [Sharpton] always told me, we’ve got to keep fighting.

“I am going to put up a fight every day, because I am not just fighting for George anymore. I am fighting for everybody around this world.”

“Today, we are able to breathe again.'”

He went ahead to thank protesters and attorneys for their support , adding that “Justice for George means freedom for all.”

Also Floyd’s family’s lawyer, Ben Crump, speaking after Chauvin’s conviction said it marked a “turning point in history” for the US.

“This is a victory for those who champion humanity over inhumanity, those who champion justice over injustice, those who champion morals over immorality.

“Painfully earned justice has finally arrived.

“It sends a clear message on the need for accountability of law enforcement,” he tweeted.
