It's a start.
The system worked. This time.
Too bloody right - let's hope the appeal is turned down (cos we know there will be an appeal, even if Gormless Carlson has to pay for it),
Absolutely.Justice was served.XOXO
@BootsYes, and a long time over due.@MaddieLet's just hope it continues to work, and that we reform the police.@HelenYes.@SixNow, carry that forward.@TravelWell past time.
It is one small step forward. Never forget there are millions of white conservatives who saw it as a failure.
Honestly, I was surprised that this jury actually returned a guilty verdict given past history. A verdict that is right and just, but somehow the inevitable outcome of a series of events that could have been avoided or stopped or interrupted. I am having a difficult time putting my thoughts into words... As a hopeless existentialist, I see the entire series of events as tragic - almost in the classical Greek sense of the word and it weighs heavily on the psyche. Forgive my clumsy attempt to make a rational comment.
@DaveI have no concern with people who don't see this as murder.@FrankYou make perfect sense. I have been saying for a year, what would this have looked like if the police just told George Floyd he wasn't welcome at Cup Foods anymore and let him go on his way.
FINALLY JUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE! let's keep it that way! FUCK DA POLICE!
I was so relieved at the verdict yesterday! Finally some accountability!
Best wishes to the Floyd family and friends.xoxo :-)
@AMIt's a good first step.@JenniferRelief is the perfect word.@TDMI hope they now have a little peace.
SO much more work to do, so many more battles to fight before the war is won. Just as this verdict was handed down, yet another young Black person - this time a 15-year old girl - was gunned down by police in Columbus, OH. More lives ruined.
@whkattkAgreed, but this might be just the step we needed to wake up the rest of the country.I read about that girl; so tragic.@DebraFinally!
It's a start. We've a long way to go. But a step in the right direction. I hope the MN House and Senate pass major police reform in the wake of this development.
@uptonkingIt's just the first step. Now we need to pass police reforms nationwide.
let us hope so.
@Ur-spoFingers are crossed that we as a country actually learn something from this.
