Although the conviction of Derek Chauvin shows a glimmer of hope that justice for black men killed by cops is possible in America, there is still much work that needs to be done to address criminal cops' abuse of power with no consequences.

Many continue to deny these concerns and usually respond with “Well… if they only had done did what they were told to do, they would not have been shot or killed.” Really???
