NEW: Derek Chauvin has been found GUILTY on all three counts. Live coverage continues on @840WHAS & https://t.co/PsGI0GRrPj. https://t.co/6h5VdKA8rq— News Radio 840 WHAS (@840WHAS) April 20, 2021 Van Jones is 100% Van Jones on what a not guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial would mean: "If a police officer can do this, what can't they do to us? What can't they do to our children? So that is what's at stake here." pic.twitter.com/M1VOlkI3by— The Recount (@therecount) April 20, 2021 Van Jones on Derek Chauvin being handcuffed and led out of court: "That is what justice looks like." pic.twitter.com/A8MkQrjuH2— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 20, 2021
The New York Times released a video simulation and multiple reports recapping the shooting of Breonna Taylor by Louisville Metro Police Department officers last March. It is compelling on many fronts and illustrates the tragedy of Taylor's death juxtaposed with the challenges for law enforcement safely serving warrants. No cameras captured the final minutes of Breonna Taylor’s life. We used crime scene evidence and testimony to reconstruct what happened and show the mistakes that led to her killing by police.

Conscientious people have been calling attention to police killings of citizens, many of whom are African Americans. Good for the protesters for keeping alive the names of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and so many other victims of police misconduct or miscalculation. The Black Lives Matter movement is the most important cultural voice in 2020. 99% of the violence in America has nothing to do with police. 16 people were just shot a funeral home in your city. It isn't the feds that are terrorizing your residents.
