(FOX NEWS) – The murder trial of Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer charged with the death of George Floyd, is set to begin today.
Floyd, a Black man, died after Chauvin appeared on video pressing his knee to the man’s neck for nearly nine minutes on May 25 last year. The medical examiner ruled the manner of death a homicide – although he also said he found a “pretty high” level of fentanyl in his system.
The case quickly prompted nationwide protests over racial justice and left-wing calls to “defund the police,” and more protests in October after Chauvin was released on $1 million bond.
