Here’s the thing… they’ve been held accountable. That’s it… I guess it’s progress; let’s see how sentencing goes. Simple truth: George Floyd should be alive.
But a systemic problem still exists. They all thought that they were within their rights as officers. They showed no humanity and failed to recognize it in this man that lay dying at their feet. You can’t even argue the bad apple theory because this scenario of police brutality and police fatality repeats itself. People, Black people, are being killed by police and this country’s institutions (Fraternal Order of Police), the justice system says it’s acceptable.
Unfortunately, it will happen again and we will be “saying their names.”
