A sculpture honoring #GeorgeFloyd in NYC was vandalized with paint, days after it was moved to Union Square.

It is the second time the statue has been vandalized — it was defaced in Brooklyn in June with black paint and a logo of a white supremacist group.

Ex-police officer Derek Chauvin is appealing his conviction for the murder of #GeorgeFloyd.

He claims the judge abused his discretion by not moving the trial, and says he has no money. The judge granted him "pauper" status — meaning he will not pay court costs or filing fees.

Ex-police officer #DerekChauvin has been sentenced to 22.5 years in prison for the murder of #GeorgeFloyd.

Police officers in the U.S. are rarely prosecuted or convicted after fatal shootings or attacks.
Of course, it’s not enough time.

The judge rejected Derek Chauvin's request for a new trial, hours before he is set to be sentenced for the murder of #GeorgeFloyd.

Prosecutors have asked for a 30-year sentence. Chauvin's lawyers have asked for probation, claiming the murder was an "error made in good faith."

A man who drove a truck into Minneapolis protesters in 2020 will have all his charges dropped if he is "law abiding" for one year.

He drove onto a highway closed for #GeorgeFloyd protests, claiming he was "in a hurry." Prosecutors say he meant to "scare" them.
