The crowd gathered on Tuesday, April 20, in the afternoon, in front of the Court of Justice in Minneapolis (Minnesota). An imminent verdict was announced an hour earlier in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer accused of killing George Floyd, on May 25, 2020.

All eyes are on cell phone screens, which show live Judge Peter Cahill proclaiming the unanimous conclusion reached by the 12 jurors in just ten hours. And to the “guilty”, pronounced for each of the three counts, the acclamations are raised outside the court.
