Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (Florida-02) released the following statement after former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd.
“Today, justice was served. Derek Chauvin broke the law, and now, he is being held accountable for his actions. I believe the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented.
It’s important to remember that the few do not represent the many and that there are far more positive things local law enforcement officers do for our communities than negative. I am incredibly grateful for the law enforcement officers who protect and serve our communities. That said, those who break the law must be held accountable.
I am praying for the city of Minneapolis and their police department, as well as George Floyd’s family. Additionally, I pray for our country to heal in the days ahead.”
