SOUTH CAROLINA DEMOCRATS RESPOND TO THE VERDICT IN THE DEREK CHAUVIN TRIAL FOR THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD

South Carolina Democratic Party released the following Statement: 

We understand for the Floyd family and the entire Minneapolis community, nothing will ever replace the loss of their loved one, or blunt the trauma inflicted on everyone impacted by George Floyd’s untimely and tragic death. 

We in South Carolina are thankful that on this matter, justice has been served and hope it is a first step toward sustained police accountability and will lead to systemic change to the policing structure in this country.”
