George Floyd's family responds to Las Vegas Raiders 'I Can Breathe' tweet


The fourth rule asks people to consider whether they need to take photographs at the site and post them. The state's guidelines say that for such a person, the presumptive sentence for both second-degree and third-degree murder is 12 1/2 years.

Chauvin, 45, was convicted Tuesday of all three counts against him: second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

"On behalf of our family, I would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Las Vegas Raiders organization and its leadership for their support of our family and for our nation's ongoing pursuit of justice and equality for alll Now more than ever, we must come together as one and continue on in this fight".

Some of the issues that could get argued on appeal include if the $27 million civil suit biased the jury, if Congresswoman Maxine Waters's statements could be considered jury tampering, or arguing the jury should have been sequestered for the entire trial.

"We don't know what effect this had on the jury until we hear from the jury".

Cahill told jurors early on that their names would be kept under seal until he deemed it safe to release them. We'll have to see if any of the jurors voluntarily come forward and speak.

"Treating races different purely based on their skin colour and having racialised instructions is bad, we've been through this already, it's not progressive to redo bad things", a third added.

Chad president wins sixth term
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi sent on Tuesday a cable of condolences over the death of Chadian President Idriss Deby . The provisional results still need to be approved by the Supreme Court after it studies potential legal appeals.

But in this case, prosecutors are seeking a sentence that goes above the guideline range, called an "upward departure". "So I think I'm expecting about 25 years in prison that he will probably going to be looking at". For more on what's next in Chauvin's case, read here. "I have to do a little bit more research into that just so I can speak coherently on that aspect".

Chauvin was convicted thanks, in part, to the compelling testimony of Irish physician Dr Martin Tobin who demonstrated, beyond doubt, that the police officer was responsible for Floyd's death. So I am not at all surprised.

"I just felt like the prosecution made a really good, strong argument".

Wearing a mask inside the Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis, Chauvin had no apparent reaction to the guilty verdict. Defense attorney Eric Nelson argued that Chauvin's use of force was reasonable, that he was distracted by hostile bystanders and that Floyd died of other causes. They have pleaded not guilty, and their joint trial will be held this summer. The officers were on scene when Chauvin, the most senior officer of the group, used his knee to pin Floyd, a Black man, to the ground for about nine minutes.

Video of the incident was seen around the world and sparked protests, riots, and civil unrest.

The three are now free on $750,000 bail and their trial is set for August 23.
