The moment the verdict of guilty was read tens of thousands of persons in several cities burst into pure joy, delirium, and rejoicing, " Hutchinson says, " A grim President Biden stated that he thought justice had been done in the case. However, the joy was short-lived. Within hours after the Chauvin conviction, Ma'Khia Bryant, a Black teen, was gunned down by police in Columbus, Ohio."
Hutchinson adds, "Her slaying marked yet another in the seemingly never-ending dubious, questionable, and controversial slayings of police slayings of young African Americans. the month after the Chauvin conviction, the New York Times found police slayings of mostly young Black and Latinos had increased.
In brutal, shocking, and graphic footage, the Floyd slaying once more rammed home the tortured and ugly history of trying to nail cops, even ex-cops like Chauvin, for murdering unarmed Blacks.
