Chauvin was taken into custody for Floyd's death. When Derek Chauvin goes on trial Monday, prosecutors will have to convince six white and six non-white jurors that the former Minneapolis cop who kneeled on George Floyd’s neck intended to harm him. Jurors were asked if they had participated in protests after Floyd’s death or seen the body camera footage. The report, however, ruled Floyd’s death a homicide and stressed that his drug use wasn’t the cause. Prosecutors will have to prove that Chauvin endangered the lives of others when he took control of the police encounter with Floyd.
