You know, I don’t know.
Those officers, of course, have their day in court, and they have their due process as well. What I shared with you then is what I continue to believe now, is that the fact that every time something like this happens, somebody might want to say, well, this is a bad apple, this is one act of an individual person.
But the fact that you had Officer Derek Chauvin, who the jury has now confirmed murdered George Floyd and has been convicted of that murder, and while he did it, there were three other officers guarding the scene, holding people back, helping hold George Floyd down. That speaks to a culture that we must address, that we must eradicate in our communities.
This is about seeing justice in a courtroom. But as one of the young men who is speaking out at the rally today said, justice is living in a world where George Floyd was never murdered in the first place. So this is about seeing justice in the courtroom. But then it’s also about seeing justice in our police practices. It’s about seeing justice in our legislation. It’s about seeing justice in case law.
We have an enormous amount of work to do from there. And I will tell you, in my mind, and certainly on the minds of the folks I saw outside at that rally today, our minds are all on all of that enormous body of work ahead.
