Blumenthal Statement on the Conviction of Derek Chauvin for Murder of George Floyd

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement after Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murder in the death of George Floyd:

“True justice would be George Floyd alive today, but this guilty verdict provides emphatic, necessary accountability. No verdict in a single case can eliminate racism or correct the injustice that continues to afflict our country. There is so much more work to do.”
