George Floyd's murderers have all been charged! Derek Chauvin, the officer seen on video with his knee in Floyd's neck for 9 minutes, now faces a more serious charge of Second Degree Murder.
I would like to think that the voices of the people and their relentless actions on social media & in the streets all over the world, were responsible for this shift.
However, there is still work to be done.
Why did it take so long for charges to be brought and corrected for all officers involved? Why aren't Breonna Taylor's killers (also police officers) currently facing prosecution to the fullest extent of the law?
Why are the people having to force the hands of appointed and elected officials?
What can you do about it, if being vocal and taking to the streets is not something you feel comfortable with? You can start by taking the steps to change your local elected officials, who can therefore also change your local appointed officials.
To get you started, below is useful information for the upcoming state primary elections.
