Judge Dredd Is Convicted On All Counts
This verdict is a good thing. I’m not interested in playing Monday Morning Defense Attorney. My understanding is Derek Chauvin was a bad cop, a long history of abusing his authority. Maybe karma was on trial. Derek Chauvin showed zero empathy for George Floyd. Maybe Chauvin wasn’t the cause of Floyd’s death but Chauvin did strip George Floyd of all dignity in his last moments of life. I will shed no tears for Derek Chauvin.
I understand that George Floyd was no choir boy. If George Floyd was a running back, still alive looking for a job in the game he'd be loathed. Still, Derek Chauvin acting as Judge Dredd offends my libertarian sensibilities. The Chauvin video is almost nine minutes of abuse. Somewhere in that nine minutes public servant Derek Chauvin could have rendered aid, let someone else render aid. A jury of his peers determined that Chauvin's actions contributed to Floyd's death. I'm good with that.
Lastly for today, I’m tired of race hustlers and the dangerous path progressives have put us on. I’m not naive enough to believe the black experience in America is the same as the white experience. Let's all just try to love one another.
