The senseless killing of George Floyd is sickening. The appalling violence against innocent black lives must be acknowledged, addressed, and corrected by all. It is the moral and humane response for all humans.
The code of silence within police departments must be broken. ‘A few bad apples’ argument is unacceptable. Police must police their department behavior. The police must demonstrate the fortitude to stand up against the killers in their department, not stand by while the life drains from a grown man calling out for his mother.
Enough is enough. Please protest peacefully, and not let opportunists/looters drown out the message.
Accountability and action must follow from vile conduct against Mr. Floyd. Justice must be served.
