RECN Fishers Response to Derek Chauvin Trial
Updated: May 2, 2021
On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by Officer Derek Chauvin in broad daylight. The guilty verdicts on all three murder charges today are worthy of celebration and very important, not only to his family and friends, but also the entire country. While this hopefully represents a turning point in our justice system, it is also basic accountability.
True justice will come when accountability is played out through the entire system, and this country shifts its policies and rights its wrongs. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Daunte Wright, and Adam Toledo, among countless others, should still be alive.
The work continues.
Black Lives Matter.
Before, now, always.
