GEORGE FLOYD OUTCOME: NO RIOTS ON VICE PRESIDENT HARRIS WATCH.
Human history is littered with iconic images and film footage. Take your pick
from the atomic bomb erupting over Hiroshima, the assassination of Kennedy,
the fall of the Berlin Wall and so on. In May of last year, another piece of film
footage, albeit an utterly horrifying one, entered the annals of shared human
existence. That was the murder of George Floyd by a state-paid assassin
masquerading as a law enforcement officer, Derek Chauvin. We won’t linger
on the gory details of George’s death – it is so well known and gets worse every
time you watch it or ponder on it.
The US and the rest of the world is now waiting on justice to come crashing
down on Chauvin’s head and rightly so. Passions though are running at
stratospheric levels and the feel of Minneapolis and other major American cities
right now is that of a tinder box. Sadly, American justice has more often than
not let down the black victims of police brutality and allowed the assailants to
literally get away with murder. Surely Chauvin will be convicted of second-
degree murder? Right? Well hopefully, yes. And if he isn’t? What if he walks
free or is convicted of a more minor charge?
Daunte Wright. When Does This Ever Stop?
Daunte was twenty years old. Not even a third of three score year
and ten. And now he has forever gone, shot dead in the chest by a
police-woman who claims to have been reaching for her taser, not
her firearm. This murder was committed by one officer Kim Potter
of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, police. She had been with that
particular force since 1995. That’s 26 years and some-how we are
supposed to accept that a “professional” of that service and stature
couldn’t make a determination between a taser and a firearm?
