Story

King County Council Chair Claudia Balducci issued the following statement Tuesday after the guilty verdict was announced in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis:

“It’s heartening to see our system can provide accountability for such a heart-wrenching event that sparked a historic movement for social change and justice.

“While this is a just and important verdict, it is just one action, in one case, that was decided with unusually compelling documentation of an exceptionally horrific act. We have so much more to do to realize true justice and equity in our nation. Here in King County, we will continue our work toward transforming policing and providing true public safety.”
