Biden hopes the George Floyd death trial will end with a “correct” verdict

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, has transferred this Tuesday his hope that the trial for the death of the African-American citizen George Floyd during a police arrest will result in a “correct” verdict, noting that the evidence shown during the process is ” overwhelming. “

“I pray that the verdict is correct. The evidence is overwhelming, in my opinion,” Biden said before the press in the Oval Office.

In parallel, the US president has stated that he “has met” Floyd’s family, also his two brothers. “I waited until the jury left (to deliberate) and I called them,” he has qualified. In this sense, he has alluded to the “pressure” and “anxiety” suffered by those close to him, whom he has described as a “good family” that asks for “peace and tranquility.”

The jury trying the case of Floyd’s death withdrew to deliberate on Monday after more than two weeks of judicial process in which the defendant, former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, refrained from giving his version of what happened.

Chauvin is charged with murder in the second and third degree and involuntary manslaughter in the second degree that could carry a prison sentence of up to 75 years in jail.

Floyd passed away after Chauvin pressed his knee against his neck for more than nine minutes on May 25, 2020. His death sparked a torrent of demonstrations for racial equality in the United States.
