Kamala Harris Says Guilty Verdict in Chauvin Trial ‘Will Not Heal the Pain that Existed For Generations’ Due to Systemic Racism (VIDEO)

Kamala Harris said a guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial still won’t heal the pain that existed for generations due to systemic racism.

“I think there needs to be a consequence and accountability for people who break the law. Period,” Harris told CNN’s Dana Bash.

Harris’s remarks came shortly before the jury found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts in the murder trial of George Floyd’s death.

Derek Chauvin on Tuesday was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Kamala Harris says a guilty verdict still isn’t enough.

“Let’s say there is a guilty verdict on the highest charge, it will not take away the pain of the Floyd family. It will not take away the pain of the communities, all communities, regardless of their color or geographic location, that felt sadness and anger in what they witnessed in that video,” she said.

“This verdict is but a piece of it,” Harris went on. “And it will not heal the pain that existed for generations, that has existed for generations among people who have experienced and first-hand witnessed what now a broader public is seeing because of smartphones and the ubiquity of our ability to videotape in real time what is happening in front of our faces. And that is the reality of it.”
