Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who killed George Floyd on a Minneapolis street last year, was sentenced to 22 and half years in prison. Chauvin spoke briefly before the sentence was imposed, offering his “condolences to the Floyd family.”
In a first, a teenager was awarded the Pulitzer special citation for filming George Floyd in Minneapolis last year. The video that went viral following the death of George Floyd sparked off protests across America calling for police reforms, human rights and end of racial discrimination against people of African origin.
