For the last week, I’ve seen the video of police officer Derek Chauvin with his knee in the throat of George Floyd until he was dead while the three police officers stood idly by doing nothing and heard the criticism of them all. And their behavior was appalling. No question about that.
But one of the bystanders filmed it while others stood by and made comments that the man couldn’t breathe and the officer should stop. Really? That’s great.
My question is why one of these bystanders didn’t step up, grab the police officer by the collar and jerk his ass off of George Floyd’s neck? Or is it okay to stand by and let a police officer kill a helpless man?
