4:01 am
at 1 o'clock this is out 0 life and also coming up. 6 6 family and friends of ford unite to herald the budget but say the fight is not over. relief and celebration outside the colts the crowds vowed to stay on the streets until all 4 officers involved in floyd's arrest convict. so much as a celebration underway across the united states following the conviction of the former police officer charged over the death of george for a jury found during shaven guilty on all 3 charges including 2nd degree murder.
4:02 am
on hearing the verdict demonstrators cheered in the streets outside the court and at the intersection where he was arrested face to fight on till the 3 other policemen involved have been convicted floyd died off the shaven knelt on his neck for almost 9 and a half minutes here's how the judge delivered the verdict on tuesday we the jury in the above entitled matter as to count one unintentional 2nd degree murder while committing a felony by the defendant guilty as verdict agreed to this 20th day of april 2021 at 1 44 pm signed your foreperson juror number 19. same captioned verdict count 2 we the jury in the above entitled matter as to count 2 3rd degree murder perpetrating an eminently dangerous act find the defendant guilty verdict greed to this 20 if they have april 2021 at 1 45 pm signed by a jury foreperson journal or 19 same caption verdict count 3 we the jury in
4:03 am
the above entitled matter as to count 3 2nd degree manslaughter culpable negligence creating an unreasonable risk by the defendant guilty. about 10 hours for the jury to convict shaven on all 3 charges he's due to be sentenced in 8 weeks and faces up to 40 years in prison. celebrations haven't been limited to minneapolis in new york washington d.c. and in atlanta others of rising to support the verdict they're demanding justice for the other black people killed by police in recent weeks of course and so that means in new york where rallies are being held to celebrate the fed will speak to her in just a moment but 1st let's cross to shepherd tansey he's standing by at the courthouse . she had so after 3 weeks of testimony dozens of witnesses the verdict in the end came fast and clear guilty on all counts. the prosecution in that closing argument said the 46 witness should be the common
4:04 am
sense of the jurors they kept saying believe your. believe what you're seeing and that 9 minutes and 29 seconds and yet. one member of george floyd's family said you know what pessimistically optimistic that they will do that if not this case then what the case was something we can't we kept on hearing so often in the past even when we had very compelling video evidence police officers have been able to say look you don't know what it was like at that moment i was in fear of my life this time the defense wasn't able to make that make that case and that was that sense of relief and disbelief but sense of no illusions about this everyone we spoke to and everyone has been speaking actually it's been a theme that there's quite aware of how we got to this point 5 or 6 years of black lives matter protests to even ensure that a police officer would be charged with video evidence like this let alone getting
4:05 am
the get it getting a guilty a guilty verdict so you activism that element is being mentioned by by everyone members of george floyd's family civil rights leaders but also that sense that even though there's gratitude to the minneapolis of lawyers the prosecution who said in their closing arguments this isn't the minneapolis police department this is derek chauvet on drugs one officer and you can kind of see why they might have said that and we knew that some members of the jury were very pro police that's saying well that is not actually the case it was the minneapolis police department that was on trial if i could was all the police department in the united states that are on trial for a system that kills and injures. black people with terrible cruelty usually with impunity but at least not this time and still to come the sentencing and appeal and then the trial of the police officers involved.
4:06 am
we do expect we do expect an appeal on the grounds all for. the jury there was no way the jury could have been partial i mean in some ways you know and it did it doesn't seem likely that. about will get very far when we talk to lawyers because the judge himself kept saying don't watch the news and would always be telling telling the jury not to be looking at media representation having said that simply thinking that there might be something wrong with the police even though even a jury selection wasn't being seen as a reason to be disqualified that they might be some of the black lives matter it wasn't a reasonable disqualification to apparel on the jury there also that the aggravating factors that will be interesting to we kept on hearing the prosecution say a child could see what was happening here child could see this was wrong in fact a 9 year old child was there saying to derek shaven get off of him and that's interesting too because i wasn't just a poignant moment but i was actually could be used as an aggravating factor in this
4:07 am
and the state is suggesting that it will be saying that there are aggravating factors here to ensure the director of an gets a long sentence otherwise the 1st offender he could get a relatively short sentence so yes so much more to come. in minneapolis. floyd's brother thing to people who've been demanding justice in the cold for them to keep on pushing today we have agreed the game. biz go on i told you we'd get justice and we still we're going to fight for you too . we got a 5 fer everybody thank you also must be just given us this time because we're here and we're not going anywhere and i want to thank all the protesters all the tourney's who stepped up all other activists who stepped up and many who think they're not activists but advocates thank you are because justice put john is being
4:08 am
done far. well we've also heard from a long time civil rights activist al sharpton about the fight for justice for those killed at the hands of police this is the 1st time in the history of distaste that a white police officer has been convicted last known convicted of a murder. this is the 1st time in a long range of fights that we've seen 3 counts guilty on all 3. we don't find pleasure in news we don't celebrate a man going to jail we would have rather george be alive. but we celebrate that we because young people white and black some castigated many that he had a night marched in kept march. i just showed you some pictures of people
4:09 am
outside the gathering of the sites in minneapolis where george floyd was killed seems a relief from a certain amount of celebration loci celebration with that the news that very shaved has been conveyed to them through chivers and let's close to new york now to christen some levy has it at a rally there were people are also you gathering and kristen it's been a subject of intense scrutiny has made it across the country and tell us more about how the russians the. new york was waiting on pins and needles for this verdict to come through in a suit as it did people began to gather in the possible i'm here on the brooklyn section of new york which was really an epicenter for protests in the black lives matter movement in the last year over the summer and until a few minutes ago there was a lot of people right here they just went marching off down the street to another location. a lot of the feeling of victory i would say i hesitate to use the word
4:10 am
celebration relief is a word i heard a lot from the people here thankful is another word that i heard and a lot of people talking about what still needs to be done in their view to continue the fight for justice when it comes to brutality at the hands of police in the minority community and i have an activist here that i want to introduce you to his name is josie a pierre he's a local activist he's also running for city council in new york why is it do you think both 1st of all let me ask you your reaction when you heard i know you've been out demonstrating in the last year what was your reaction well you know been demonstrating for the past year so there is a certain level of relief but that whole hour long wait. for it it was kind of like you know a heart stopping it's like ok what happens next we're going to begin to do what we normally do and not give us justice or is it going to be those are going to be a change and so the feeling is by. basically bittersweet because at the end of the
4:11 am
day we still know in the back of our minds as a long way for this country to go in terms of justice for black folk why is it that here in new york this is such a resonant issue i know eric garner 2014 also died at the hands of the police is did you see similarities between man yeah you know here in new york especially in flatbush where i'm from we've seen a lot we've seen patrick dorismond we remember. and that's years back and coming to this point even when we think about the young man in florida that that was a victim of george zimmerman right all of that adds up and it really stays in the back of your head and what you feel is that you know had it not been on camera had it not been all these different things how do we not really tugged on the justice system the media etc maybe it would have gone that way and more likely than not it would not have gone that way so you think that made the difference what what. describe the movement in the last summer and
4:12 am
a sense of purpose that people here had what was different about when eric garner people came out was killed eric people came out protested and didn't have the same result so there are there different layers to it one people were primed and ready they were angry about a lot of things and so they came out for this too it was a diversity of people you know usually it's like a black hole come out and people watch on t.v. but it was black white asian hispanic you name it that came out but there was also a heavy social media presence heavy media presence and just people just pounding away pounding away and keeping it alive so i figured that there were conversations about this at dinner tables that would never have this conversation and it said that much pressure and effort to achieve this level justice thank you so much for talking with us about how you're feeling tonight and how we got to this point as he said there's still a lot of work to be done many of the people here feel they see this as
4:13 am
a good step. very historic step but only the 1st step i should say that the reasons are on standby around the city as well they were prepared for what could have been a tense evening not so much tension now a sigh of relief i think across the city and they are of course and thanks for that christians who with the new york. well george floyd family and the lawyer spoke on the phone with president joe biden and thanked him for his support. right here in america. you know. yeah i feel better now nothing. make it go all the better pleased that we're seeing this right here. biden said he was praying for the right verdict he watched with president vice president common interest and says the result is a step towards justice in america. there are systemic raises this day on our
4:14 am
nation's soul. the knee on the neck of justice for black americans profound fear and trauma the pain the exhaustion of black and brown americans experience every single day this can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in america. let's also be clear such a verdict is also much too rare we have to listen i can't breed i can't breed. nice words we can't let those words die with you. have to keep eerie those words we must not turn away we can't turn away. of us president come to her as is urging the senate to pass the george fully justice and policing are we
4:15 am
feel a sigh of relief still it cannot take away the pain a measure of justice isn't the same as equal justice this verdict brings us a step closer and the fact is we still have work to do we still must reform the system. last summer together with senator cory booker and representative karen bass i introduced the george floyd justice and policing act. this bill would hold law enforcement accountable and help build trust between law enforcement and our communities this bill is part of george floyd's legacy a letter from a white house correspondent complete how could. this is a white house that believes that there is still so much work to be done and that was the focus of the comments as the u.s.
4:16 am
president and 1st lady jill biden as a lot well as couple of harris telephoned george floyd's families to speak with them again saying that there is so much more work to be done and a commitment that they will continue to do that work kamel harris pointing out that we wouldn't even be discussing this case today this verdict guilty on all 3 counts for derek show from the police officer who knelt on george floyd's now causing his death we wouldn't be talking about this if it weren't for smartphones and the courage of those people who stepped out and spoke up against what they see as one of the greatest challenges in the united states and that is systemic racism something that was the focus of the president's comments a challenge to all americans as he spoke there saying that not only is it important to acknowledge that it exists but also to confront it saying that it is a systemic racism it is a stain on the nation's soul now in reference to that legislation the george floyd
4:17 am
act it is in congress the president referencing that it came out about a year ago but it has still not been passed into law when the president spoke to george foy's family he said he's looking forward to bringing this into law by signing it but 1st it has to be passed in congress is passed in the house it is stuck in the senate or let's bring in you know to williams who is the distinguished university chair and professor of history at the university said thomas joins us via skype from and minneapolis minnesota you heard williams welcome to the program 1st up what's your reaction to these voters. i think a degree of relief but all an overwhelming relief that the right verdict was reached by the security but also deep concern that people will assume that the were of dismantling systemic racism have racial disparity here in the in
4:18 am
this country is going to end with this verdict and we're far from that which is why i was encouraged by what the president and vice president shared today this is an issue that transcends policing in a lot of ways a lot of people can celebrate soon a verdict in this case and a victory in a limited sense that this officer will be held accountable for his actions of the larger systemic challenges economically socially politically in this country also have to be addressed if we're actually going to talk about equity and justice across the board right the trial has been described as a pivotal moment for race relations and policing in the united states how do you ensure that it will be a turning point. well i think for some some people who are focused nearly every issue of leasing it certainly is a referendum on that because there's been so many cases in the past where officers were not held accountable for violence against black or brown people people like adam toledo the young young man 13 year old in chicago who was recently killed
4:19 am
there and. who still here one center or george floyd of course would have gone unrecognized and those officers unpunished right now we look at this moment i think there are some real momentum around the justice we don't george play out in some other much asleep circulating at the state and local level to deal with this issue but the problem is policing is simply to tip of the iceberg as we saw in the case that don it's a break from last week it's also bad law and that policy which leads to over policing which makes communities of color color black and brown people more vulnerable to this type of violence to this over policing which is part and parcel of much larger issue. we saw the police chief testify against barry should have been in this trial what message do you think the hundreds of thousands of police officers across united states will take away from imbalance in the trial and from these but it's empty. it was a significant moment because often what the police will do in cases like this is
4:20 am
a wreck what's known as the blue wall on the blue wall of silence they will testify against other officers you often see in close ranks close ranks mentality take over she earned out of those decision not only to testify in this trial but his decision in the immediate aftermath of the killing of george floyd last may to dismiss the officers involved signal to the parcher from what we've seen historically and his testimony along with fellow officers in this case exposed alternately a couple of things i think are significant number one and it exposed the cube years olds you and the so-called guiding principles that are supposed to undergird the way that peace officers go about policing communities it was important for the key here that i felt like cheap here in town that was talking him as much to the cutie as he was testifying in any case but also it was an opportunity for people to understand this office of say often paying lip service to this idea that they want
4:21 am
to get rid of the bad apples just as much as anyone else and that was important for people to see that last but not least it was an opportunity to peel back the layers of that who curtain and to understand again what informs those policies practices and procedures and also keep the tributes of deadly encounters like what we saw in the kill in georgia will that rai mention the drug for justice in policing act how hopeful are you that that will indeed gain the traction that's necessary and will need to a full scale reform of the criminal justice system. believe it or not i was more hopeful prior to this verdict i think that the danger that we're in now is that people will assume because we got a guilty verdict in this case that the justice for george floyd act is not going to be necessary and that's problematic because this problem has been much bigger than what's happening here on the ground in minneapolis of course you can talk about reality eyler of kentucky we can talk about countless other police killings across the nation so i think that you know while i would like to see the senate pass this
4:22 am
we are still talking about a deeply divided congress i'm here to states we're still talking about deep partisanship on this issue and unfortunately i don't think that the momentum is there to see this through and with the not guilty verdict in this case i think it will take some of the pressure off of those legislators who might be reticent to sign this much needed legislation into law the her whims joining us there from minneapolis and pull in minnesota thank you thank you. all right we're going to move on to some other news now childs military has promised an 18 month transition to free elections after announcing the death of president. the army says he was killed while visiting soldiers fighting rebels in the front line that he had just won reelection and was one of africa's longest
