If I were Derek Chauvin, my defense in the death of George Floyd would be that I was protesting. It appears that when you’re protesting, no rules apply, and you can get away with anything.
The problem with the reactions to the unnecessary death of George Floyd is that everyone is desperately seeking someone to protest. Unfortunately for them, but fortunately for this country, this country is pretty unanimous in its reaction: It was completely unnecessary, and justice must be served. Everyone, conservatives, liberals, men, women, blacks, whites… everyone agrees that what happened was wrong and justice must be done. Now, cooler heads will stop and mention due process and allowing all of the information to come in. But even they will agree, right now, that what they saw on video was completely wrong….
