To the editor:
Hallelujah! George Floyd can rest in peace.
The man who so arrogantly used his knee for more than nine minutes to squeeze the life out of him was found guilty, guilty, guilty! While Mr. Floyd pleaded for his life and the crowd said, “You are killing him,” he smirked at the camera, hands in pocket.
He was invincible. And why not? He had seen unarmed Black men murdered by white police officers time and time again all over America with no consequence.
Maybe it was the egregiousness and length of this stance that got him convicted. But I, for one, am ecstatic.
