The trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd is underway in Minneapolis, and it represents a moment of grave importance in the fight against police brutality and abuse of power. First, Brandt Williams, MPR reporter who’s on the scene of the trial in Minneapolis, joins Michael Isikoff, Dan Klaidman and Victoria Bassetti to report on the trial’s opening days and on the mood in the city. Then, former DOJ veteran Kristy Parker joins to talk about the difficulties inherent in prosecuting police officers, and how the Garland Justice Department can take steps in the future to hold officers accountable. Our hosts also talk about the import and significance of Biden’s list of judicial nominees, headed by Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
