the verdict comes nearly one year after this video of shoving kneeling on floyd's neck for nearly 9.5 minutes went viral as floyd begged for his life didn't breathe video setting off international protests over racial injustice. and police brutality, over the last three weeks, jurors listened to more than 40 witnesses crucial testimony for the prosecution coming from dr martin tobin, who testified that floyd died from a lack of oxygen due to being pinned down by show of in some defense witnesses maintain show than used reasonable force and that factors like floyd's heart and illegal drug use contributed to his death. so where do we go from here show vin is expected to be sentenced in eight weeks. that's according to the judge. in this case, he does face a maximum sentence of 40 years. it's likely not to be that long, though, when we actually do get that sentence on then, of course, here in minneapolis today, largely peaceful. the
6:04 pm

6:06 pm
stuff for our businesses. what a recovering economy, it's always tough to see businesses continue to suffer around midday tuesday, the chief stopped by to damage businesses on 17th of broadway, a metropcs mobile store and neighboring oakland ish windows to the clothing retailer was shattered as demonstrators moved up broadway last friday during the tour chief armstrong acknowledge the issue of police reform and insisted that change needs to happen. i'm a police chief that is willing to have that conversation about how we as law enforcement. police are our communities in a way that's fair and equitable for all people, no matter what you look like guilty after the shaman verdict came down, we had a chance to speak with oakland's mayor. this verdict of guilty on all counts gave me a profound sense of relief. really be shaft, echoing some other sentiments by chief armstrong that the showman case highlights the need for police reform something chef says is already underway at opd. we are changing the culture of policing toe one of guardianship. and that those
6:07 pm
who are not part of that change will be asked to leave and held accountable for any deviation changes long sought. i mean, a number of nationwide, police involved shootings involving black and minority men, michael stand in a health sciences professor, california state university. east bay. highlights see anxiety among black americans during counters with police. the police are supposed to be. protectors right? sometimes you know these cases, i think for many black americans, they highlight a sense that you know, it's unclear whether black americans can feel that same protection it. oakland police said they had plans to plans in place to keep the community safe prior to the verdict. and while there was a very small, small gathering in front of city hall in response to the verdict, there were no reports of any issues. julie and his good news andre senior reporting live for us tonight, andrei thank you in the past hour, we talked to san francisco police chief bill scott. he says justice has been
6:08 pm
served for george floyd and his family. 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, chief scott says. this case started a movement that has never been seen before, and he's hoping that local and federal governments could work together now to create police. warm, joining us to talk more about all of this is a civil rights attorney and dante pointer. first of all, thank you for joining us when you first heard the judge say guilty. what was the first thought that went through your mind? there was just a sense of relief. you know that in this case in this time in this moment that the people who have
6:09 pm
been the most victimized and have been the most impacted either watching that horrific video or sitting and pins and needles, hoping that our justice system would do what it's supposed to do, which is delivered justice to the victims and to the people. it was that relief that this time it was done. but i also know that we're really the test will be what type of sentence is handed out. officer shoulder? yeah, let's talk about that in a moment. first, i wanted to just ask you how important is this verdict? is this a tipping point when it comes to civil rights and policing? i heard one person say that he was a black man say that this is a new day in america. do you agree? i can't make that pronounced. i would like to, but until we see the evidence, you know, i trust but i've verified when i could look around here in the bay area and i see more district attorneys prosecuting police officers for violating the public dressed just as vigorously as they
6:10 pm
would prosecute you and i for a traffic stop or for violating someone's rights or causing harm, then i'll be happy to make that pronouncement. until then. i'm hopeful, but it's guarded optimism. okay, let's go back to the sentencing officer, former officers showman is facing up to 40 years. do you think that the judge will give him the maximum sentence or are you worried that he would reduce the sentence because officers show over in has no criminal record and could theoretically service little is 12.5 years. well, i don't think that he'll get the maximum here, you know, typically given as you mentioned the person who doesn't have a criminal record well, should not receive the maximum, and given that he's a police officer. i'm sure you that will also give some credit towards going in the other direction towards a more lenient sentence. but does he deserve the maximum? yes do i know that people do much? just as much time for non violent crimes. yes, so he should get the maximum, but also i'm very familiar with the way the justice system works and for us
6:11 pm
in the bay area, rouz remember oscar grant and johannes measure, the trial conviction was had, but that officer spent less time behind bars in a person who's a multiple dy offender. let me finish with this one question here for the sake of argument would george floyd's death if it wasn't videotaped? would we still be where we are today? in other words, how important is it that that person put it pulled out their cell phone and videotape what officers show vin did for nine minutes and 29 seconds. it made all the difference in the world. you know, there are so many people whose names we don't hear. don't know who aren't reported upon who died and very similar manners and without the videotape, there was no proof and it was the officer's word against the citizens or, unfortunately they died alone. it was only the officers work, so i think the video and body cameras that makes all the difference in this what we're seeing today, and i like it into the civil rights movement, you know when television brought the dog. was
6:12 pm
the water hoses and the beatings into everyone's home. we could no longer deny what was taking place in the place. we call our country and that we were betraying the promise the oath and the ideals of our country, so i think that this could be a watershed moment to well, let's hope so because there's no denying it when you have it on videotape. dante we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight. thank you so much. thank you for covering this very important issue. and her coverage of the showman verdict continues next, with reaction from the south bay and look at the celebration of justice under way, a significant cool down again today as much as 15 degrees cooler and very brisk winds along the coast. details on

years past huge crowds like you see here would gather it hippie hill in golden gate park to light up in unison. but this year, the city has closed that part of the park until tomorrow. the mayor said today that the pandemic is simple. too dangerous for a large group of people together. we don't want a super spreader event cause 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. in addition to the fencing around hippie hill, there were also rangers deployed in parks throughout the city to try to discourage any large social gatherings. and i suspect the weather kept people away as well as real breezy out in the park and really cool with lots of cloud cover, so i might not have been the ideal situation for the folks want to go out there. this model shows long range seven days out. this is the pattern as we go through the next few days dry, dry dry wednesday. thursday friday
