A decision was reached in the Derek Chauvin murder trial: Guilty on all three charges for the murder of George Floyd.The announcement was read by Judge Peter Cahill shortly after 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday.Lester Holt anchored the NBC News Unique Report when the decision read.”Derek Chauvin founded guilty on all three counts. Guilty of second-degree unintended murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, and leaving the courtroom in handcuffs, “said Holt.”I think, when the 2nd and the third count was available in, guilty, there was

simply a wave that simply rippled across this crowd, “said NBC News correspondent Gabe Gutierrez.”And I think if I could sum it up in one word, Lester, it is relief. Relief from a crowd that had actually been waiting for this decision for months. Remedy for the neighborhood that had seen razor wire, and barriers and boarded up structures just engulf downtown Minneapolis.”Signing Up With the NBC Unique Report were NBC News correspondent Meagan Fitzgerald from Minneapolis,

chief White Home Reporter Kristen Welker from the White House, MSNBC Reporter & Host of Into America podcast Trymaine Lee from Tulsa, NBC News Legal Analyst Paul Butler, NBC News Legal Analyst & Wrongdoer Defense Attorney Danny Cevallos, NBC News Analyst & Chair of the Dept. of African American Studies at Princeton University Eddie Glaude, Former Chief Public Defender for Hennepin County Mary Moriarty, Former Law Clerk to Judge Sonia Sotomayor & NBC News Factor Melissa Murray, Washington Post Writer & NBC News Political Analyst Eugene Robinson, Former U.S. Lawyer Joyce Vance, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar(D-Minn.)Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King co-anchored CBS News’Unique Report. King, in addition to Jeff Pegues and Jamie Yuccas, reported live from

Minneapolis. O’Donnell anchored from Washington, D.C.”Guilty. Guilty. Guilty,” O’Donnell said after the decision was announced. Pegues consulted with people gathering in Minneapolis following the decision. One informed him:”I didn’t have doubts that he was guilty. I had doubts in terms of white supremacy, and white supremacy saying that if you’re white, you can get away with murder as long as it’s a person that is Black.” CBS News factors Rikki Klieman, Alexis Hoag, and Ibram X. Kendi signed up with to use their analysis. CBS News’Special Report included interviews with Minnesota criminal defense lawyer Joe Tamburino, previous president of the NAACP Nekima Levy Armstrong and Vanderbilt University distinguishedprofessor Michael Eric Dyson. In Addition, Elaine Quijano anchored continuous live coverage on CBSN, with analysis of the decision and response as well as local reporting and updates from CBSN Minnesota. Over on Fox News, after the verdict was announced, Dana Perino quarterbacked The 5 with Martha MacCallum as a guest and Jeanine Pirro, Juan Williams, Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld as panelists.”Plainly, the verdict is supported by the truths– this case was incredibly uncommon,”said Pirro.”I have actually attempted numerous murder cases and I sat

as a judge on murder cases. It is unusual that you even get a picture of the victim in a murder case aside from possibly an autopsy image. However here, we had a living, breathing individual that the jury had the ability to associate with

daily, day after day. Viewing the trauma of what he went through. Pleading for air, pleading to breathe. This was an emotional in addition to an intellectual choice. And when I state that, make no error, the truths are strong on this verdict. This verdict will be promoted on appeal. Right now, what individuals require to comprehend is that the American justice system works. It works. The people best believe in Girl Justice. That if we give it a chance, it can work.”Williams added: “To my mind, it would have been so disturbing, it would have been a start the stomach– that’s why I stated it would have been emotional– if in this most severe circumstance where everyone can see what took place that the jury would have somehow said well, let’s divide the decision or he’s a cop and we wish to give policeman in our great

nation the benefit of the doubt, so we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. I believe it would have been a kick in the stomach since that would have said that police then can do anything, to anyone, particularly to Black individuals. But what we’re seeing today is truly a modification and I hope it’s the start of a big change in the manner in which we consider handling criminal offense, dealing with individuals, not making judgements based upon skin colors and treating people as suspects and not as residents to be secured.” Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace co-anchored for MSNBC, with Williams remarking, “The whole world simply got to see that: Derek Chauvin led away in handcuffs. Depending on the personality of sentencing, Derek Chauvin may not see the light of day once again. If you were viewing, you heard, guilty on all charges. Murder 2, the lower charge, guilty; murder 3, guilty; murder 2, felony murder, guilty. Nine minutes and 29 seconds. Prosecution informed the jurors, believe your own eyes. In this case, they have. “Joy Reid then leapt in:”My first thoughts as I heard that decision being read were for George Floyd’s household. You and I both interviewed members of his household, his brother Philonise, his daughter, who famously screamed out’my daddy altered the world. ‘And I think that what simply occurred today, you know, I take Jason’s cautions to heart, however even if it took ten law enforcement officers to cause a verdict that will

bring justice and a sense of peace to this family, I’m good with that. The truth is, the decision today was not simply against this policeman. It protested the kind of– that was mounted for him. It’s the same sort of defense that was mounted in the Rodney King case, the Black Superman who, no matter how much violence you devote versus his body, can raise up, even from the dead in the case of George Floyd, and position a risk. The idea of a black man as an intrinsic threat, a black body as an inherent hazard, that’s what Derek Chauvin’s defense tried to utilize in his defense. Over on ABC, World News Tonight anchor David Muir led the coverage.”This was the scene in south Minneapolis just minutes ago … Accepting one another and in lots of ways for that community and for the people who have collected there it’s been an extremely long year in this country, “he stated. Muir was signed up with by ABC News Live Prime and World News Tonight Weekend anchor Linsey Davis reporting from Minneapolis with reporter Alex Perez and World News Now and America This Morning co-anchor Kenneth Moton. Chief White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and

congressional correspondent Rachel Scott reported from DC, Nightline co-anchor Byron Pitts in New York and correspondent Steve Osunsami in Atlanta. Chief legal expert Dan Abrams, Chief justice reporter Pierre Thomas, former prosecutor and The View co-host Sunny Hostin and host and legal expert at Law & Criminal Offense Network Terri Austin provided context and analysis. In addition, Excellent Early morning America co-host Michael Strahan signed up with. Strahan told Muir,”David, I appreciate you having me on and I think my reaction is looking at the decision and you feel that it is justified. You feel maybe this is the changing of the tide. Ideally you no longer get away with killing of a Black person no matter who you are in society. Not simply other law enforcement officers but for anybody. And you take a look at this case and it certainly– Black individuals in America have actually been treated in a different method when it pertains to handling the police. This is also about simply mankind of the whole to see this as a person. It was disturbing. At the end of everything, I think that you

see individuals commemorating and you see individuals are happy, however it does not bring George Floyd back … you had Breonna Taylor, you had Philando Castile, you had all these others that did not get the justice that we see here when it comes to George Floyd however you still have the family who suffered through the fact that yes the verdict is guilty but yet he will never stroll through their door once again. However as a whole, as Black man in this nation, as Black individuals in this nation, we feel that ideally this is an altering of the guard. A change that will show that people of color will be treated with the regard and dignity of everyone else and it will not be an afterthought. We won’t be shocked when something like this occurs and the decision is guilty. We won’t be on the edge of our seat hoping that the verdict is guilty when it is really tough to understand how it couldn’t be. “
