I’m happy with the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin and believe that the prosecutors clearly demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt that George Floyd was murdered. However, I have no faith that this case alone will effect change in America. Everyday, there is a new story of assault or murder of black women and men by those sworn to both protect and serve. Although I truly believe that most police officers are not bad apples, there is enough bad apples to diminish the faith in American justice system.
Question(s) of the Day:
- Do you feel justice was served in the George Floyd Murder?
- What steps should be taken to address the failures of law enforcement?
