Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is now behind bars after being convicted on all three murder charges in the death of George Floyd. While many breathed a sigh of relief following the verdict, deaths at the hands of police haven’t slowed. According to the New York Times, police have killed at least 64 people since testimony began three weeks ago. More than half of those people were either Black or Latino.
