Press Release

Congressman Marc Veasey (TX-33) released the following statement after Former Minneapolis Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, was found guilty on all three counts in George Floyd’s death:

“Today’s guilty conviction means the officer who brutally killed George Floyd will finally face justice and be held accountable for his actions, but it will never give George Floyd his life back or return George to his family. While the verdict marks a turning point in holding police accountable, there is still so much work to be done in the fight for justice for the countless Black and Brown people who have been killed by police. We must remain dedicated to pushing for critical reforms needed to address systemic racism and protecting the lives of Black and brown people across our country."
