"Let's say there is a guilty verdict on the highest charge, it will not take away the pain of the Floyd family. It will not take away the pain of the communities, all communities, regardless of their color or geographic location, that felt sadness and anger in what they witnessed in that video," Harris told CNN on Tuesday shortly before Chauvin was convicted on all charges.
While Harris signaled that the "consequence and accountability" for Chauvin is a step in the right direction, she continued to spout off why judicial justice won't remedy the "pain" caused by years of what she has previously called rogue policing.
"This verdict is but a piece of it and it will not heal the pain that existed for generations, that has existed for generations among people who have experienced and first-hand witnessed what now a broader public is seeing because of smartphones and the ubiquity of our ability to videotape in real-time what is happening in front of our faces. And that is the reality of it," Harris continued.
