Mayor Duggan's Statement on Guilty Verdict in George Floyd's Death

The criminal justice system doesn't always work, but it worked today for the family of George Floyd.

I was proud of Chief James Craig last May when he became the first big-city police chief to call the death of Mr. Floyd what it was: murder.

Now a year later, today’s verdict sent a message that this country, including many police officials who testified at the trial, will not tolerate the type of treatment that Blacks and other people of color too often receive from police in too many cities.
