Well, I drove by where his mural (pictured) is and there were at least 100 people there and plenty of wreaths and flowers. It was just subdued. Lots of tears, including my own, even though I didn't get out (I figured it probably wasn't the best time for a wealthy appearing white guy to mingle with the crowd, which honestly is REALLY still dangerous over there). Thinking positively, he did not get the minimum, and the judge did add extra time due to the circumstances. I could comment on Chauvin's giving "condolences" to the Floyd family, but I don't want to turn the tone of this thread negative and nasty. I'll save that for the comment sections on RW sites.

ETA: Has FB prohibited any mention of the Chauvin sentencing? I just spent five minutes scrolling my feed, and there's nothing. And I am very politically involved and have FB friends that would absolutely have commented or given a link, or SOMETHING. It's odd. As for the RW sites, I can only just close my eyes and take a deep breath. I am sure many of these awful commenters claim to be Christian, but really, if they had Christ in their hearts they would not write all the things they did, even if they were trolling for outraged comments. Their comments are just the opposite of Christ's teachings.

NY Times has an update in this pending case:
A California woman who falsely accused a teenager of stealing her phone and then attacked him at a New York City hotel was charged with a hate crime on Wednesday.

Miya Ponsetto, 22, pleaded not guilty to two counts of second-degree unlawful imprisonment as a hate crime, one count of second-degree aggravated harassment and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. She was arraigned in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan over video call.

A police chief in Ohio put a KKK sign on a black officer's coat. He was caught on camera.

Cause history isn't racist, but some police are. So was the KKK, needless to say.

And when this guy got caught, he did what they always do- says it was a joke.

Fortunately, he got fired.

Here is the sentence for a previously discussed case:
A white man was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison for attacking a Black teenager with a bike lock at a southeastern Michigan park because of his race.

A Detroit federal court judge also ordered 43-year-old Lee Mouat, of Newport, to serve three years of supervised release.

Mouat pleaded guilty in March to a federal hate crime after he was accused of striking Devin Freelon Jr. with a bike lock on June 6, 2020. Freelon was 18 at the time.

Aurora, CO, is where Elijah McClain was murdered by police, and where a family with small children was made to lie on the pavement because of a police snafu over a car that was not even their car.

This report was authorized by Aurora. As usual, a large amount of bad behavior was caused by a small amount of police officers.
The report cost $350,740.75 so far, and could cost $25k more.

A Chicago officer (with numerous complaints, as well as a previous suspension and arrest for assault) apparently uses what would normally be a ticketing offense (on the beach after hours) to physically detain a young black woman:
The little dog worked hard to help her.
