5:03 pm
factors like floyd's heart and illegal drug use contributed to his death. and show them is expected to face sentencing in about eight weeks. that's according to the judge, hey is facing up to 40 years in prison stemming from that most serious charge, which is the second degree murder. his lawyer is expected. to appeal julie lauren, what can you tell us about president biden and the white house? we heard that president biden reached out to george floyd's family today after the verdict was read. what can you tell us? about that, and his message. to the floyd family. yeah, that's exactly right. so we actually got video of that moment. the boyd family along with their attorney, ben crump, recorded our had the president and vice president on speakerphone. what we heard from the president and vice president is they sent their of course condolences to the floyd family, because, you know, said they were proud of
5:04 pm
them. for sticking through this. it's almost been a year now since george floyd's death, they said they would continue to stand with them. a z. the nation moves forward as congress moves forward with different legislation in george floyd's name, they even said at some point they hope to bring the floyd family out to the white house. so overall, a sympathetic but rejoice full tone from the white house to the floyd family after that verdict came down, lauren, i know you're busy doing live shots. i don't if you had a chance to talk with anyone there in the crowd, there is a large crowd there behind you. what are they telling you are what are you hearing about their plans for later tonight and anything more as to a personal story. ah, personal reaction as to today's verdict yet, julie, we have been trying to talk to folks and in particular, i think some of the most moving reaction that i've gotten from is from father's black fathers in this crowd who brought their sons down to await that verdict, they said.
5:05 pm
they feel like this is a new day. new leaf is that exact term i kept hearing over and over, they felt they felt justice for their community that they finally felt they that the system was working for them. talkto one year young woman 18 year old woman who continually was doing happy dances throughout the streets, and she said she finally felt that our year of protest ng had meant something and that she was very excited. obviously to see those that verdict come down today, but they all said the fight is not over. it's a new day, but it is the beginning of their fight, all right, lauren blanchard outside the courthouse there first tonight in minneapolis. lauren. thank you. and we want to know too. i should tell you that george george floyd's brother, who gave emotional testimony about his older brother at the trial, said the fight for racial justice is just beginning. i'm gonna put up a fight every day because i'm not
5:06 pm
just fighting for george anymore. i'm fighting for everybody around his world. i get calls. i get the ems people from brazil from ghana from germany. everybody london, italy. they're all saying the same thing. we won't be able to breathe until you're able to breathe. today. we are able to breathe again. the family's attorney called the verdict. quote of victory for those who championed humanity over inhumanity. joining us now to talk more about this is our legal expert, michael cardoza. he's worked as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney, michael when you first heard the judge say guilty, guilty. guilty what was the first thought that went through your mind? good they should have brought back three guilty verdicts. the government in this case proved way beyond a reasonable doubt that mr shah
5:07 pm
vin was filthy of most second degree murder of the are third degree murder. excuse me, a second degree murder and the second degree manslaughter. the defense was felt certain facts in this case. i thought they did a commendable job with the facts that they had, but the government with all their power, was able to put this case together and prove it so good. he got convicted of what he should have been committed. michael former officer chauvet now faces 40 years in prison up to 40 years in prison for that second degree murder conviction. 25 years for third degree murder 10 years for manslaughter. do you think in this case, he'll get the maximum also would the sentences be served consecutively or concurrently? in other words, is shoving going to be a very old man, if or when he's ever released? well is he going to be an old guy? when he's released? that would think so. but keep in mind, there's one actor george
5:08 pm
floyd. jury verdict. he was murdered by mr chavez. it was murdered. that's the second degree murder and at least in california, you can not. consecutive that really do the other two guilty verdicts because it's the same act, so it's not 40 45 plus 10. okay, be sentenced up to 40 years. but keep in mind frank that back in minnesota if you don't have any criminal record, the usual time that a first time even though it's murder is about 12.5 years. that's all he would serve. that's why at the beach. inning of this trial, the judge asked mr shopping art. i can point to this jury whether there's aggravating circumstances in this case, that's a jury pleasure unless you want me. judge hale. the decided and shopping and his attorney at that time, said. we
5:09 pm
do not want the jury deciding whether there's aggravation in this space. so if the judge can go find serves aggravation he could give much more time enough before years, mr shopping, and that's why he told the attorney's brief back and then splits it. six weeks or two months. i'm back and i will sentence in that aggravation term will be up to judge cahill. michael what kind of prison will former officer shobin likely serve his time in would he also be in protective custody since he is a former police officer? and what would a typical day like b for him? he's going to be awful for him, frank. he's gonna be in protective past. they probably 20 hours and 24 hours. he will be alone in a cell. they'll let him out for about four hours all by himself to exercise at least in death penalty cases where someone's facing the death, and that's what goes on here in california, especially
5:10 pm
for police officers, they lock you away. it's gonna be horrible time and that's why tonight. believe me, they've got him on suicide watch, and they're watching him very carefully. michael 10 or 20 years from now, when we look back at this case, do you think it will have made a difference in terms of how police operate and in terms of how many black people currently don't trust our justice system? i think that trust is going to have to be earned over the years. it's not going to come. frank somerville burdick. it has to be done through. these departments in how they leave, so when we look back, this will be the first step. is this justice right now? certainly accountability is a lot of people are saying, i'm not sure it's quite justice yet, but it is the first step and that first step has to be carried on. so let's see how the police departments were you have let's see how the community reacts to this. michael, we appreciate
5:11 pm
you taking the time to talk with us tonight. we'll leave it at that. for now. i hope you have a great evening. thank you to frank. stay healthy youtube. thank you. we're live in oakland, where people have strong reaction to the all guilty verdict in the derrick shelvin trial coming up. also ahead, we will keep an eye on minneapolis throughout the evening. this is a live look right now at the gathering there tonight, hours after derek shobin was convicted. in the killing of george floyd. it's pretty breezy out there and we had a significant cool down yet again today. what's that mean for tomorrow in the rain chances and the five we're f
5:12 pm
5:13 pm
5:14 pm
minneapolis, where former police officer derrick show vin was convicted on all three counts today, including second degree murder, he could potentially spend up to 40 years in prison. these are live pictures from san francisco, where you can see some people are out there as a result of the guilty verdict on all three charges. let's see if anybody's talking right now, if we could get yeah. looks like we can't really listen in here. but again, this is. going on right now in berkeley. there. excuse me in san francisco. there are other protests going on in other cities. i shouldn't say protests. i should say gatherings in other cities this afternoon. wanna go live now to ktvu is amber lee. she's in oakland and amber. i imagine a lot of business owners there are breathing a real sigh of relief that the verdict wasn't not guilty because, as we all know that could have led to violent protests. well everyone
5:15 pm
we spoke to dis call this a victory where frank ogawa plaza, a popular spot for protesters, and it's pretty quiet here, but a few people did show up to express the reaction to the all guilty verdict in the trial of derek shelvin. they say this victory is a direct result of the many massive street demonstrations last june after george floyd was killed, i came down here today to say thank you to minneapolis to say thank you to the. thousands millions of people that march across the country and across the world day after day after day after day and had that determination to build a movement that we saw had a huge victory today in finding derrick show been guilty on all three counts. i think the guilty verdicts on all charges against derrick show vin is an absolute victory
5:16 pm
for the movement that took to this. treats here in oakland and in minneapolis and across the country and across the world last summer, we're going to be over the next few hours, we will be speaking to many more folks about their reaction to this verdict and what it means to them. folks are telling me this is historic. they are surprised, but pleasantly surprised. activists are telling me that this is only the beginning and that a lot more work needs to be done, and they'll be keeping a close eye. high on the sentencing back to you, frank, julie and really live in downtown oakland tonight. amber, thank you. and for more reaction now we're joined by san francisco police chief bill scott sheep. scott thanks so much for being with us tonight. when i asked you first off when you first heard today's verdicts, what was your immediate reaction? well my immediate reaction was one of
5:17 pm
thoughts for mr flores family. e i mean, i think out of all of everything that has that's happened. we really have to go back to mr ploy with human being a man with a child, a daughter of family, and so that was my first reaction. it was, i think justice for his family and then secondly, it was justice for so many people. over such a long period of time who feel that they didn't get justice. and i think that is why you're seeing such jubilation and it crosses many, many lines. i mean, i dare many people in this profession, including myself. that you felt a sense that justice was served in this case. is we talked with we talk more about that and people begin to digest today's guilty verdicts in process what they heard coming out of the courthouse there in minneapolis. how do you think that this case will resonate are is resonating now across the country and
5:18 pm
around the world for so many people who saw what played out over the past year, play out on with smart phones and video. and now that we got to today, this point that so many people are calling what may be a very transitional moment in our history. how do you think it's resonating? you know, julia, i totally agree with that. i think it is a transitional moment. this case called the movement that we have never seen before in this country, and i think that energy that's behind this has touched us all and hopefully in a positive way. um and i think it is one of those moments that we have. that we can capture that energy and all move forward. i do think we this is that moment. i know you thought a lot about this. you're someone who has dedicated your life to law enforcement to serve and protect communities. what is your hope? what do you hope happens next? what is our next move? well, i can tell you for
5:19 pm
our city. you know, we have our own work cut out for us, and we have had our share of cases that have caused pain and heard and the many families feel that they didn't get justice. and i think this was a moment for those families as well and i want to acknowledge those families because not only acknowledged, but the commitment to move us forward. hopefully so this so we don't have another incident like this, so we don't have it in our city. we don't have it in any other city in our nation. and that's the hope, and that's why i think the energy of what's going on here can help propel us for two, maybe realize that that they were we see. if not none of these incidents, you know very, very fewer of those, and particularly in terms of the disparities that we see with these incidents happening to african american man and other men of color that we fixed that as well. i mean, that's the work that is cut out for us to here in san francisco, and i
5:20 pm
think in many other parts of the country, and it's just reaffirms my commitment. i think our department its commitment to try to fix our own problems but also be a leader. uh and help move this this word for word. chief scott. one more question before we let you go. there's been a lot of talk in washington about police reform, but so far there really hasn't been a lot of action. as you looked at our president and our elected leaders. what would you like to see happen? well, i think we're getting that from our president, and the first thing is leadership leaders lead and people have to be brought together on both sides of the aisle for the good of the whole and a, lot of the thing with law enforcement, there's over 18,000 departments and so much of police reform and changing police for the better rest with the local. jurisdictions in the local elected its and the local constituency, but we all also
5:21 pm
have to be brought together and i think our president and vice president are committed to that, i think are governors committed to that in the state, and i know our mayor's community that because i've had many conversations, so are police commission and i know that the people are committed to that so we can work in the same direction. not that we're always gonna agree, but we have to keep moving forward, and i think we're going to get that leadership from from our administration. and just one more thing when final thought you call this with many people are calling this a transitional moment. so many young people so many children have to process what happened here as a parent, perhaps as a teacher telling your students in class what is the one message you would like young people and children to learn from this moment? well i would like people to learn people take the young people that, um everyone there is a such thing is justice and it doesn't always seem that way. and i definitely from for africa. american people in this
5:22 pm
country men, particularly, it hasn't seen that way in his history, but we are moving forward. i think we have to look at this from the lands of history as i tell my son, things are better for you than they were for me things. better for me than they were from my parents and things are definitely better for my parents that it was for their grand parents. so there is progress that's being made here, but we have so much more to do in the young people get engaged, you know, s o. many young people were part of this movement and that was i think for people like me it was it was very encouraging, and it gave us all hope. and stay engaged. staying farm, stay engaged and be a part of change. that's a good message chief scott with the san francisco police department. thanks so much for your time tonight. we appreciate it. thank you all coming up more reaction to the guilty verdict today in minneapolis. a live picture right now from minneapolis, where derrick show vin is now

5:32 pm
40 years in prison afterward, george floyd's family attorney talked about the verdict today, way framed this moment for all of us, not just for george floor. this is a victory for those who championed humanity off inhumanity. those who champion justice over injustice. those who champion morrow's over immorality, the floyd family also pledged to continue to fight for equal justice for all americans of every race. there's a strong sense of relief in the bay area's black community following today's guilty verdicts, ktvu is out. savage joins us now live with more on the impact of the jury's decision and what it means for the push toward police reform. alex yeah, those are a lot of the questions being pondered right now following today's verdict, of course, culminated what has been an emotional and traumatizing trial for so many
5:33 pm
black americans earlier today during the four here on ktvu. i had the chance to talk with the head of a bay area organization called 100, black men of the bay area, and he told me that he is hopeful today's decision may signal a shift when it comes to how this country views, race and policing. i'm optimistic that this is a transformational event. that will create a different mindset for those that aren't necessarily affected by this directly, right? i think this is something that's so egregious that so loud people are hearing everyone scream. that it hits you emotionally. as a human being right. i think that's what's different. and you know that the first video that went viral is in 2009 by oscar grant. right right here in our backyard milk one, right on new year's day that was the first viral video, but this has happened since 1967. huey
5:34 pm
newton, bobby seale, the black panther founders. they were protesting the police when ah young man in north richmond got shot. so this is something that has continued its just now teat. but now we're looking at 10 years of that. 10 years. and so i think this is a turning point, because when you look at someone. you know, being being in a person that is handcuffed, that is helpless for nine minutes and 29 seconds. it dies. a slow death by the hands of the people supposed to protect us that hit you. and that's chuck baker, the ceo of the bay area. nonprofit 100 black men of the bay area. the organization mentors. young black commanded works to advance their social and economic progress, and baker said to me that the next steps he believer for people to continue this push for meaningful reforms to policing in the criminal justice system to ensure that black people are treated fairly and their lives
5:35 pm
are valued. baker told me that watching this trial unfold has been exhausting for him personally, he is satisfied with the verdict, but also ah, saddened by the place our country is in but hopeful that this will all lead to some change. julie alex. thank you. about an hour ago. both the president and the vice president spoke to the floyd family by phone. and then shortly after that, both of them spoke to the country from the white house. among other things, the president said that the trial ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism in our country, and he ended by saying that this is going to be a turning point when it comes to racism. ktvu evan sernoffsky here now, with more on all of the seven. that's right, frank, right after the verdict came down the president and vice president called the floyd family to offer their condolences and support in the future. and then, about an hour ago, the president addressed
5:36 pm
the american people saying there needs to be more racial justice. nothing can ever bring their brother their father back. but this could be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in america. then former president obama tweeted this quote today, a jury did the right thing but true justice requires much more. michelle and i send our prayers to the floyd family, and we stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every american the full measure of justice that george and so many others have been denied. now frank today the president went on to say convictions like the one that happened today are way too rare and more needs to be done to confront racial injustice and disparity in the criminal justice system. he also said that nobody is above
5:37 pm
the law reporting live evan sernoffsky ktvu, fox two news. all right, evan, thank you. still to come. san francisco tried to keep people from gathering on 4 20, but people still found other ways to celebrate the this is a no-nonsense message from three. small business insurance usually forces you to piece together multiple policies. that's why three was created.
5:38 pm
it's one policy that covers everything you need... leaving those old policies in the dust. three. no nonsense. just common sense. it was when she started forgetting things. i didn't know how much mom was struggling. when i pictured us growing old together. i didn't envision this. i did think of it, but i also thought of her happiness, and i would never put my mom into a facility. i love caring for him. we've been together for so many years, he's my best friend. but i can't do it alone anymore. if he's at home, getting the best care... home care with an entire support team. mom could stay in her house, as long as she wants. thekey would be the perfect solution. they'd play her favorite music, cook her favorite foods... and walk everyday, safely! his days will be filled with joyful moments. she'd have her dignity and i wouldn't have to do this...by myself.
5:39 pm
small business insurance is usually so complicated, you need to be a lawyer to understand it. that's why three was created. if you own it, three covers it. got a cheese slice for “spokesperson?" that's me. i don't even need to see what's happening behind me to know it's covered. three. no nonsense. just common sense. celebration for the cannabis community. ktvu is christian captain is live at delores park in san francisco, a city that has long celebrated the day even before cannabis was legalized in christian. this celebration alameda different from years past. yeah, definitely different than in years past. ordinarily we might be over in golden gate park, maybe it hippie hill. but this year, the city is really cracking down, trying to make sure there aren't any big gathering. so instead, we made our way here to delores park and take a look. we found plenty of people, they seem to be somewhat. based apart and
5:40 pm
sure enough at 4 20. we heard a cheer go up and small puffs of smoke go up in the air. 4 20 april 20th is here a day historically when those who enjoy cannabis partake together at 4 20 in the afternoon, but this year things are a little different. i plan on just kind of taking my time going on my solo journey. just tow. you know, i experienced the plant myself. i love her so much in years past, huge crowds would gather it hippie hill in golden gate park and light up in unison. this year, the smoke has been replaced with chain link fences. the city closing off this part of the park until wednesday, san francisco mayor london breed reminding people that with the pandemic, it's simply too dangerous for a large crowd to gather. we don't want a super spreader event because thea other thing people do. puff puff pass. so what we don't want is really, really haven't event like that, with that many people coming together at the apothecary on market street, the manager said. what had been a slow year is. picking up? absolutely i
5:41 pm
mean, the line beat me here this morning. they were already waiting when i showed up, tom, lock the doors. this is exciting. it feels like 4 20 years back, she says the market is shifting so that those who enjoy cannabis can do so even while social distancing my new favorite product that is becoming very popular over the last few months, our little dog walker joints personal safe serves single size, so you kind of get this little itty bitty it. it's just for you and you can get a pack in chair mall with your friends, so you're not kind of crossing those boundaries. those looking to celebrate said they're doing so the same way they've weathered covid-19 and socially distant pods safely. well it's social distancing in the park. actually i guess we're just going to go hang out, catch some sun and smoke some weed. all right. this is those fences that we told you about that are up in golden gate park. we can also tell you that the city sent out law enforcement and rangers to some of the city's parks. try to make sure there weren't any large gatherings reporting live in san francisco christien kafton ktvu fox two
5:42 pm
news, and i learned something new dog walker joints hadn't heard of that before. christian. thanks. and there was a one of a kind 4 20 event today in the south bay involving former nfl star and oakland native marshawn lynch. he was a guest bud tender at san jose's airfield supply company at dispensary helped launch marshawn lynch cannabis brand called dodie blunts. link says he's invested in the cannabis industry because it has the ability to raise up black and brown communities and because he wants to help lift up his many people as he can. marchand's focus on community in his desire to just make the world a better place to make the bay area better place was something that really is always think up for us from the beginning of this idea, you know the statements from marshawn were always how do we do this in the best way? how do we get it to the most people? how do we make sure that people have access to that? lynch cannabis rand also launched it up to two dozen others select
5:43 pm
