They have to convict. I fear for the US if these ^&^! shake the charges. Awful sad to see his son there.

George Floyd death: Derek Chauvin charges upped, all 4 officers are now facing charges George Floyd , an unarmed Black man, died after pleading for his life as a police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest.

Sorry but Chauvin is walking, no way they can prove second degree, should have stuck with third and it would’ve been a slam dunk Sad. Nothing would've happened with the Aubrey case if the people were not outraged. Nothing would've happened here again if the people we're not outraged. Maybe, hopefully... One day.. we'll get it right. ✊🇨🇦
Blackout Tuesday may hurt awareness efforts after George Floyd death, advocates sayThe movement could unintentionally silence Black voices, doing more harm than good, advocates say. I think the riots, looting, arsons, and the beating of innocent people in the streets by black thugs have already done more harm than good for their cause, don't you think? Allowing AntifaDomesticTerrorists to take over the show was a YUGE mistake. They are PLAYING YOU You can refer to them as people you know... I'm against prejudice/racism! There are many good black folks! This does injustice to them! This violence, looting, shooting, destruction, hurting people; & they want us to be on their side against racism? Why aren't good blacks standing up against this?🤔 George's brother is!
