George Floyd's family responds to Raiders'"I Can Breathe tweet after the verdict in Derek Chauvin's trial

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin spent his first night in prison since his conviction for murdering George Floyd segregated from the other inmates, a Minnesota Department of Corrections spokeswoman said Wednesday.

George Floyd uttered the phrase, "I can't breathe", while lying on the ground with Chauvin's knee pressed against his neck during a police stop on May 25, 2020. Now more than ever, we must come together as one and continue on in this fight. "I didn't know if it was going to be guilty on all counts, I would have said guilty". And he said, 'Today, we are able to breathe again.' I took my lead from him.

Over Twitter, the ACB Network mentioned in a thread even with Derek Chauvin being found guilty, it still is not justice because George Floyd is no longer here, however, the conditions that allowed for his death are. Let's take this breath together in honor of my big brother who couldn't.

Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death on Tuesday and is expected to be sentenced in eight weeks.

Garner's final words became a rallying cry of protesters calling for police reform and accountability following Garner's death.

The news prompted an outpouring of response from a sports community that's played a significant role in driving the social justice conversation prior to and since Floyd's murder last May.

Davis declined to delete the tweet, telling the Associated Press that he wouldn't because the statement was already out there.

However, NBC Boston's meteorologists confirmed there were no earthquakes reported around the time of the explosion. According to the Kingston police, investigators are looking into possible property damage.

Davis told the Review-Journal that, while he doesn't use Twitter, he passed the words to the team's social media personnel.

Christensen said "the prosecution make a really good, strong argument" and that Dr. Martin Tobin, the prosecution's pulmonary expert, "was the one that really did it for me". That's a situation that I was not aware of.

"It'll be with me for a while", Christensen said of the trial.

"It's already out there", Davis said.

Davis added that "if I offended the family, then I'm deeply, deeply disappointed". "It's not an apology".

"I don't think they had a good impact", Christensen said of Chauvin and attorney Eric J. Nelson.
