Former Minneapolis police officer, Darek Chauvin, aged 45, has been convicted for a second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter on George Floyd. This verdict comes after a 2 day deliberation by the jurors.

On May 25, 2020, Chauvin knelt on George Floyd's neck for more than 9 minutes, resulting into an incident that triggered the Black Lives Matter awareness era.

After the verdict was made, the former police officer who wore a mask inside the Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis showed no reaction to his conviction. Meanwhile, his bail was revoked and thus was consequently placed in handcuffs and removed from the court through an adjacent door.

According to sources, he was taken to a facility in Stillwater, Minnesota, about 25 miles east of downtown Minneapolis.

In a video captured by a bystander, Chauvin was clearly seen deliberately kneeling on George Floyd's neck and back; the latter whom had already been handcuffed and lying flat on the road (close to a van) for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.

Unfortunately, the 46-year-old Floyd gasped for air and could be heard repeatedly saying 'I can't breathe' until he went silent. He was declared dead by medics at a nearby hospital.
