  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Turning point? Policing, justice and the George Floyd murder trial” – below is their description.

    Guilty on all three counts. It took but ten hours for the jury to make Derek Chauvin’s the state of Minnesota’s first-ever white policeman convicted of murder. We ask if the outrage sparked by last May’s killing of George Floyd marks a turning point for the United States and a criminal justice system that’s violent, harsh – and where many of the country’s 18-thousand law enforcement bodies wield outsized power.
