The Beginning Trial of Derek Chauvin

It was the video seen around the world: a police officer with his knee on a man’s neck, who uttered the words, “I can’t breathe.” That man was George Floyd, and the officer, Derek Chauvin, is now on trial for second-degree murder, third degree-murder, and manslaughter. The other four officers that were surrounding him during the incident were all fired and charged with murder, according to The Washington Post.
