Crump, who symbolizes the Floyd, Wright households, appeared on ABC's"This Week"

"Ultimately making America live up to the promise of justice and liberty for all. That means all people Black people, Hispanic people, Native people -- most people.

"And I'm tired of as many Black men and women are tired of hearing whenever they kill unarmed Black men and women.

"What I need the president everybody to add to this lineup, Martha, is murdering unarmed Black folks is unacceptable," he continued. "We must send this message to the authorities, since the crux of the situation is that: I was born Black and I am likely to perish Black, but authorities don't kill me because I'm Black."

Crump added that congressional action is essential as the nation looks to deal with the issue of violence toward non-white Americans from authorities.

"We will need to acquire the George Floyd Justice and Policing Act passed to alter the culture and the behaviour of policing in America, particularly as it pertains to marginalized minorities -- and particularly Black men and women. Because if a Black person has been stopped for a traffic violation, it shouldn't end up in a death sentence," he explained.

Outside the Chauvin trial, Crump -- talking on behalf of the Wright household -- said earlier this week that Kim Potter, the former Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police officer who resigned after she stated she pulled her out Taser rather than her gun at an interaction using Wright, watched Wright as"expendable."

Looking forward into the verdict at Chauvin's path, Raddatz asked,"When he's found not guilty -- because the country braces for this verdict -- what could you say to the people of Minneapolis?"

Crump said the nation can't continue to endure excessive violence.

"I'd say, once more the American legal system has broken our heart and we can't condone this excessive use of power, America. We can't condone this wicked we watched this movie with Derek Chauvin, when he retained his knee George Floyd's neck for 2 minutes and twenty-nine moments. And we must eventually have this racial reckoning, America, since if we do not, then folks are gonna continue to possess these psychological protests," he explained.

In another panel on Sunday, after Crump's interview, ABC News Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams and Channa Lloyd, a civil rights lawyer and managing partner in the Cochran Company, agreed it is exceedingly improbable Chauvin is going to be acquitted.

"I feel those people who've been watching this situation carefully, who've been seeing all of the expert testimony, watched the movie, watched the opening announcement, et cetera, could be amazed when there was an all-purpose acquittal in which you find 12 jurors who state he wasn't accountable," Abrams explained.

"In this instance the prosecution has put a very tight instance, they've covered lots of the foundations, they were quite comprehensive," Lloyd explained. "I really don't believe that the defense brought up specialists which were able to fight the info which has been given by the nation's experts, also in this instance I don't feel we are likely to find an acquittal."
