Today, Minority Whip Tina Maharath (D-Canal Winchester) released the following statement:
“Although we may find comfort in the verdict, this is not full justice. Full justice would have meant that George Floyd was still with us, and that this senseless act of police brutality had never happened in the first place.
“We still have a lot of work to do to ensure true justice and fairness for all. I will continue our work toward putting an end to bias-motivated crime and ensuring that tragedies like this finally come to an end. I want to offer my condolences to Mr. Floyd’s family and friends, and to all who have suffered.”
