Last updated 4/20/2021 at 4:38pm
Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers released the following statement today on the three guilty counts against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin:
"Justice is served. The fact that a jury found George Floyd's murderer guilty doesn't lessen the crime nor diminish the many other criminal acts that have never been accounted for in our justice system.
"However, this verdict should motivate us all to work on making our justice system fairer, particularly for members of Black and African American communities, and building a community where no one can commit murder with impunity.
"I will continue to work to build an anti-racist government and a Snohomish County that is safe and welcoming for all residents."
