Activists less than optimistic following Derek Chauvin murder conviction | The World

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Activists less than optimistic following Derek Chauvin murder conviction | The World” – below is their description.

There’s been a mixture of celebrations, relief and reflection after the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all three charges of murdering George Floyd. Some say far from achieving justice, one trial will not fix a system they feel specifically targets Black Americans. Social activist Kwame Rose tells The World that “no decent human being could pretend” that Chauvin’s actions were justified.
