The teenager whose video was seen ’round the world of George Floyd being murdered by Derek Chauvin has spoken on the guilty verdict that just came down … and she’s elated.
17-year-old Darnella Frazier just reacted to the news Chauvin was found guilty on all 3 counts, and now faces a max sentence of 40 years. She says, “I just cried so hard😩This last hour my heart was beating so fast, I was so anxious, anxiety bussing through the roof. But to know GUILTY ON ALL 3 CHARGES !!!”
Darnella shared her emotions on Facebook … the same platform where she first posted the infamous 9 minute-plus video, which was the critical piece of evidence in Chauvin’s trial.
She added, “THANK YOU GOD THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU😭🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽George Floyd we did it!!🥺❤️❤️❤️❤️justice has been served✊🏽”
Darnella elaborated even further on IG, saying … “My heart goes out to George Floyd’s family!❤️🙏🏽Although no amount of charges will bring back a loved one, justice was served and his murderer will pay the price. We did it❤️❤️✊🏽#justicewasserved.”
It’s no exaggeration to say Chauvin’s conviction is due in large part to the fact Darnella captured every painful minute his knee was on George Floyd’s neck … nearly 10 minutes.
Her video was played almost daily during Chauvin’s trial and, in the end, clearly helped the jury reach its unanimous decision in under 11 hours.
