The trial of George Floyd's killer

Episode Notes

Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes, killing the man who allegedly used a counterfeit $20. Chauvin will be tried for murder this month. Many officers have been indicted for the deaths of Black people, but not convicted. POLITICO's Nolan McCaskill reports on whether this case will be different, and what long-term impact Floyd's death has had on the movement for police reform.
