Protesters Surround Semi-Truck After it Drives Near Minneapolis Crowd Celebrating Chauvin Conviction

Protesters jumped on and surrounded a semi-truck after it drove near a crowd of people celebrating the guilty verdict against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on April 20. Jurors returned a verdict of guilty on all three charges against Chauvin, on trial for the death of 46-year-old Floyd, after less than 10 hours of deliberation. Chauvin was tried on charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. The former officer was seen on video kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes as Floyd pled for air. The verdict was announced just after 4 pm Tuesday afternoon at the Hennepin County Government Center. Footage from outside the building shows a crowd erupting in cheers as the verdicts against Chauvin were read aloud. Three other former police officers await trials for charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Credit: SSky57 via Storyful
