After the verdict stating that Chauvin was convicted on Tuesday of all three charges of murder and manslaughter in the deadly arrest of George Floyd, Biden and Harris called Floyd’s family to express support, Floyd’s family attorney Ben Crump said on Twitter.
President Biden and VP Harris call the Floyd family after the GUILTY verdict! Thank you @POTUS & @VP for your support! We hope that we can count on you for the police reform we NEED in America! ✊ pic.twitter.com/cg4V2D5tlI

Such a decision could be considered a milestone in the fraught racial history of the United States and a rebuke of law enforcement’s treatment of Black Americans.
Today, a jury did the right thing. But true justice requires much more. 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. pic.twitter.com/mihZQHqACV
