As Africa and the world at large watches the try of Derek Chauvin who murdered George Floyd. The fact that the global world lean’s on the United States as the land of freedom, justice, and equity, few people have beginning to ask what is hard about arriving at a verdict of a man whose death was clear.
As, tensions increase across the United States of America, protesters are now coming out in their large numbers, people have started gathering across the country as the jurors deliberate whether to convict Derek Chauvin for murdering George Floyd or acquit him.
From the White House in Washington DC, President Biden is staying to monitor the situation, senior officials said. Chauvin can get up to 40 years in jail. He is 45 years old as of date, meaning if convicted on the first charge, he may come out at the age of 85
As the trials unfold, White, Black, and Brown protesters prepare to sleep outside the courthouse in Minneapolis as the jury ends the first day of deliberations without a verdict
Jurors have now gone to bed and will gather again tomorrow as more protesters gather outside the courthouse, millions of people all over the world are observing
This is not just about the shocking killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American man on May 25, 2020, after former police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee against his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds,
This is about all life matters, the right to live and respect all humans irrespective of their colors, race, tribe and religion, George Floyd may have been alive today if people, mostly black Americans are not subjected to racism in the United States, its time the world come together as one and kill the main killer (Racism)
On that faithful day May 25, 2020, George Floyd was seen begging for his dear life but was ignored until he passes out
Even witnesses who pleaded with Derek Chauvin to stop the assault on George Floyd were also ignored. It was so shocking bystanders had to call police on police and a child had to plead with the officer to get off George Floyd at the very moment
The arrogance seemed to be at its highest level, even after Floyd said more than 20 times he could not breathe. For almost another 4 minutes, Derek Chauvin, who is white, remained on the neck of Floyd, a Black man, father, young and still full of life
The shocking video, recorded by a teenager, triggered outrage and disbelief and led to protests worldwide with many people asking the police in America to stop killing Black people.
Today, the prosecution and defense presented their closing arguments and handed the case to a jury of 12 people, 6 of them are white people and 6 others are people of color.
The nation is now awaiting its verdict on three charges. But outside the courthouse, protesters have already gathered, demanding that justice, not racism prevails. until then, the world at large is watching, from AfriNOTES, Africa Multipurpose News and Directory classified portal. Stay safe
