WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Senator Jack Reed issued the following statement after Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murder in the death of George Floyd:

“I think every American was rightfully angered by that video of George Floyd being brutally, unjustly killed by someone who was supposed to uphold the law and instead grossly abused their power.  This was a just, unanimous verdict reached by a jury that carefully examined the evidence, followed the law, and reached its own conclusion.  Nothing can bring George Floyd back, but we as a nation must move forward together.  There is more work to be done.”
