On Tuesday night, in an address from the White House, President Biden said that Tuesday’s guilty judgment in the Derek Chauvin murder trial can be a big step forward in the march toward justice in America, but Biden continued, such a verdict is also much too rare.
President Joe Biden, in a TV speech along with Kamala Harris (Vice President), said that the murder of George Floyd (a Black Man) under the knee of Chauvin as killing in the light of day that ripped the blinders off for the entire world to see the systemic racism that’s a big stain on their country’s soul.
Chauvin killed Floyd by pressing his neck by knee
President said that the deep trauma and fear, the pain, the exhaustion that brown and Black Americans experience every day. Moreover, Chauvin was charged with 2nd-degree murder, 3rd-degree murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter on account of George Floyd’s death (a Black Man killed by Chauvin when he pressed his neck by knee for above nine minutes).
Before introducing President Biden, Kamala Harris said that a measure of justice isn’t the same as equal justice. She continued that this judgment brings people a step closer, and the fact is that we still have work to act on, and we still must change the system.
Kamala Harris (as a member of the Senate) along with Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Karen Bass (D-Calif), presented the Floyd Justice in Policing Act to grasp law enforcement accountable and assist in creating trust between communities and law enforcement.
Vice President Harris described that this lawsuit is part of the legacy of George Floyd. She added that she and President Biden will enforce the Senate to approve this law, not as a cure for every issue, but as a start.
