Attorney General Kaul Says No Verdict Can Bring George Floyd Back

A Minnesota jury has found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty for the murder of George Floyd and Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul issued a statement regarding the verdict.

“What we saw in the video of the events leading to George Floyd’s death wasn’t law enforcement. Derek Chauvin wasn’t protecting or serving the residents of Minneapolis. He was committing a horrific crime.” 

“No jury verdict can bring Mr. Floyd back. Nor does this verdict mean that we don’t need to reform our criminal justice system. But today’s verdict does mean there will be accountability and, I hope, a measure of healing, especially for Mr. Floyd’s family.”
