This headline from #ChauvinTrial saddens and infuriated me. Whatever the verdict, we have to decide as a country whether or not this is who we are.
The saddest part about the murder of #GeorgeFloyd is how historically unsurprising it is: this case is unique not because of what happened - my grandfather’s grandfather could have told you about cases just like this. It’s unique because the video made entire world eye-witnesses.
Anything short of significant public safety policy reform, including real transparency & accountability, will doom us to continue reliving this horror.
