BREAKING NOW: Jury Reaches a Verdict in the Trial of Derek Chauvin, Announcement Soon

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.20.21

From Fox News:

The jury in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has reached a verdict on its second day of deliberations.

Minnesota remains on edge as jury deliberations continued Tuesday before deciding the fate of Chauvin, who is charged in the death of George Floyd.

More than 3,000 National Guard soldiers, along with state and local police officers, sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement personnel have flooded Minneapolis in recent days, with a verdict looming in the Chauvin trial, and following the fatal police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in the nearby city of Brooklyn Center.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys ended closing arguments in the Chauvin trial Monday after making their cases to jurors following weeks of testimony amid nationwide concerns over potential unrest that could follow once a verdict is reached.

Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill said the court is in recess, “until we hear from the jury.” Jury deliberation could take hours, days or weeks. The jury consists of six White people and six people who are Black or multiracial.

Closing arguments are now underway in the Minneapolis trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd.

“Floyd’s death, and the shocking video of the events leading up to it, caused national and global outrage. Now there are fears of unrest if Chauvin is acquitted — an outcome that Black Americans, in particular, would see as evidence of a system egregiously biased against them,” reports The Hill.

 

 

“The Chauvin verdict is set to play out against the backdrop of the deaths of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minn., just 11 miles from the site of Floyd’s death; and of Adam Toledo, a 13-year-old, in Chicago,” adds the outlet.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz officially declared a ‘State of Emergency’ hours before a jury is set to deliver their verdict on Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with second-degree murder in the killing of George Floyd.

Fox 9 reported that Walz held a news conference to lay out his plans to maintain security. He said the state is bringing in police backup from Nebraska and Ohio. The report pointed out that the Minnesota Senate approved $9 million in emergency funding to deal with potential unrest,” reports Fox News.

 

“We can’t live like this,” he said. “We simply can’t. But we can’t have thousands of businesses burned and people put at risk.”

“The murder case against Chauvin in the death of George Floyd went to the jury Monday. The jury of six white people and six people who are Black or multiracial began deliberating after nearly a full day of closing arguments,” adds Fox.
