Defense tried to make George Floyd the criminal in Derek Chauvin’s murder trial | REVOLT BLACK NEWS
In this “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” segment, host Eboni K. Williams sits down with well-known prosecutor Justin Miller and attorney Chris Stewart to break down Derek Chauvin’s murder trial, which has been referred to as the “Trial of the Century.” The panel not only discuss the prosecution’s standpoint, but also break down how the defense used certain tactics to make George Floyd out to be a criminal instead of the dead victim.
On Tuesday (April 20), former Minnesota cop Chauvin was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. His sentencing is in a couple of months.
Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people for Black people.
“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ‘REVOLT BLACK NEWS.’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
