Looks like a national lynch mob, which is still a lynch mob when the targets are white, in blue uniforms.

If it's true that she "will not be at ease until I see to it that those officers are charged for the grievous murder of GEORGE FLOYD" then she is part of the problem. Just SAYING that is part of the problem, but not as much as "believing" it.

A police officer, especially, should understand the concept of due process, and the principle that every suspect is properly considered innocent unless proven guilty.

Yet, she has, in her words, convicted these officers of murder, in the kangaroo court of (manufactured) public opinion, without due process, apparently forgetting the essential principle that all men are created equal. All men includes white men, it includes white men wearing blue uniforms, and it includes white men wearing blue uniforms recorded on camera, looking bad. Those men have a right to due process, and a right to be considered innocent unless proven guilty.

Liberty under the law can't survive if too few people know better than to condemn people of looking bad while white in blue uniforms, even when the emotional manipulative groupthink is powerful.

The record of history is clear. Joining a rush to judgement in such matters is about as unlikely to help the people, which _includes_ black people, as can be. It will instead hurt our allegiance to first principles, and consequently hurt people, which includes black people.

My advice is to decline to join the lynch mob, every time.

The embarrassment, on the part of the young lady officer, and the reporter, which I think necessary to discuss publicly, because of the circumstances, is here:
