Madison, WI – Today, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges brought against him in the killing of George Floyd. On this verdict, Rep.Stubbs issued the following statement:

“George Floyd should be here today. While I am proud that Officer Chauvin will be held accountable for his actions, the work does not end here. As leaders we must pass meaningful reforms so that this senseless violence doesn’t touch another community”

“This verdict is no substitute for Mr. Floyd’s life. At the end of the day, a mother lost her son and their family will never be the same. The Floyd family will never have full justice, but today they can rest knowing that Office Chauvin was rightfully charged, tried and convicted.”

“This is a somber victory for racial justice, but systemic racism will not be solved with a single verdict. Our current criminal justice system continues to fail communities of color across the board. We need leaders at all levels of government to remain committed to fighting for equity, and reforming our criminal justice system.”
