Bexar County D.A. issues statement on verdicts in Derek Chauvin case

Following the guilty verdicts in the cases against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales issued the following statement:

"George Floyd’s final 9 minutes and 29 seconds in handcuffs, on the ground, begging for breath and his mother became part of our national consciousness. Like millions of Americans, I was shocked and angered by what I saw. What started as a routine interaction between police and a man accused of a non-violent crime turned into a national tragedy before our eyes.

While this was a trial about the actions of a single officer, this must serve as a moment for us to create the kind of change that restores trust between the community and the criminal justice system."
