Pascrell Praises Chauvin Guilty Verdict

U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today released the following statement after Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts.

“Right and wonderful justice has been served,” said Rep. Pascrell. “George Floyd was murdered. The evidence was overwhelming. The jury saw that and delivered swift accountability. This trial result is one stich towards helping heal the wounds that were tragically opened by Mr. Floyd’s death. But complete healing demands that we as a nation confront the broken trust between our communities and the systemic injustice in our justice system. George Floyd should be alive today. I pray for Mr. Floyd, his family, their friends, and America. I hope that Mr. Floyd’s tragic end will help move America closer to these goals. It’s up to us.”
