An attorney for the family of George Floyd says the trial of Floyd’s accused killer is a referendum on the United States.
Benjamin Crump spoke in Minneapolis before the trial of former cop Derek Chauvin got underway and said it will show how far America has made it on the journey toward equality. He also said it’ll prove how far along the nation is when it comes to achieving justice for everybody.
Crump added the trial will show whether America truly lives up to one of its founding documents, the Declaration of Independence. Crump says Floyd was tortured to death and asserted this case isn’t a hard one.
