Barack Obama, a former US President has reacted after the jury found Minneapolis Police officer,  Derek Chauvin guilty in the murder charge in George Floyd's death.
 
Recall that George Floyd died in May 2020 after Chauvin placed his knee on his neck.

Obama in a statement said the verdict has brought a realization that Black Americans are treated differently which needs to change.

Part of the statement read: “With Today, a jury did the right thing but true justice requires much more.

“True justice requires that we come to terms that Black Americans are treated differently everyday. It requires us to come that millions of our friends, family live in fear that their next encounter with law enforcement agents could be their last and it requires us to do necessary work of making the America we know more like the America we believe in.”


Obama while describing the verdict on Chauvin as a necessary step on the road to progress, said the government, Americans cannot rest yet.

“We need to follow through with concrete reforms that will reduce and eliminate racial bias in the criminal justice system.

“If we are being honest with ourselves, true justice is much more than a single verdict in a single trial.”


While offering condolences to Floyd’s family, Obama called for more work to be done in making Black Americans stop living in fear that their next encounter with law enforcement could be their last.

“Michelle and I send our prayers to the Floyd family, and we stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every American the full measure of justice that George and so many others have been denied,” 
he added.

Chauvin sentencing will be finalized in eight weeks as he faces up to 40yrs in prison for second-degree murder, up to 25 years for third-degree murder and up to 10 years for second-degree manslaughter.
