It may be too early to tell, but it appears as a nation that we can breathe at least a temporary sigh of relief now that verdicts have been rendered in the Derek Chauvin case. Civil unrest that many expected would become a reality if the former police officer was acquitted on any of the charges he faced as the result of the death of George Floyd last May, appears less likely after a Minneapolis jury on Tuesday convicted Chauvin of 2nd degree murder, 3rd degree murder and 2nd degree Man slaughter. But that case is far from over. Chauvin won’t be sentenced until June and many legal scholars believe an appeal is very likely. Additionally, 3 other former police officers who are also charged in Floyd’s death won’t go on trial until August. In the mean time many of our nations’ political leaders will appealing for calm, and that’s an appeal we can only hope will be heeded sometime soon. That’s the way I see it.
