Former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin was convicted Tuesday of murder and manslaughter for pinning George Floyd to the pavement with his knee on the Black man’s neck in a case that triggered worldwide protests, violence, and a furious reexamination of racism and policing in the U.S.
After the verdict was announced Tuesday, the Oklahoma sports world reacted to the guilty verdict on social media. Here are some of those tweets.
