Obamas On Chauvin Verdict: “We Cannot Rest”


Barack and Michelle Obama

Barack and Michelle Obama believe more needs to be done in the wake of Tuesday’s guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin.  In a statement, the former President and First Lady called the verdict “a necessary step”, but urged “We cannot rest.  We will need to follow through with the concrete reforms that will reduce and ultimately eliminate racial bias in our criminal justice system.”  The Obamas added “True justice requires that we come to terms with the fact that Black Americans are treated differently, every day”.
