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
God, our judge, we plead our case with you. Lay your Divine hand upon the outcome of this (Derek Chauvin) case and also on our compatriots' anger, thoughts of revenge, and the insatiable need to disrupt and destroy. Stay any inclinations toward violence and remind us that vengeful behavior is no more justified than the acts of those who precipitated this grief and harm and ignited our cities. As you inevitably judge our response to the incidents of unrest that plague our land, forgive our iniquities and heal our brokenness. Redeem the soul of our country. Today's opening prayer in Congress delivered by Rear Admiral Margaret Grun Kibben (ret) covers every facet of America's dilemmas with right and wrong, race equity,

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.
It's been 50+ years since President Lyndon B. Johnson's "The Great Society" strategies were enacted to extricate America's poor people from the clutches of economic inequality. Taxpayers spent an estimated $13 trillion to $22 trillion on programs, infrastructure, and cash payments to redistribute wealth. Rioters in various parts of 2015 America claim that systemic economic injustice is still holding people down. The Great Society had some wins and losses. What now? And what of the police officers, national guard, fire fighters, and other first responders whose lives are endangered by mobs intent on destruction? Gang members said they were not trying to hurt police, just calling attention to police injustice at large. Should the public, as Baltimore's mayor suggested, offer space
There's lots of bad information being distributed following a Ferguson, Missouri grand jury's decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown, who had just stolen from a convenience store and was confronted by Wilson. An altered version of the middle sign became a sensation on the Internet: ----------------------------------------------- Perhaps the worst response comes from Nation of Islam leader Rev. Louis Farrakhan, extolling the virtues of young blacks rioting and saying, "Let's die for something." According to Nation of Islam leader Rev. Louis Farrakhan, peaceful protests are yet another manipulation by the white man over people of color, justifying violent retaliation by African Americans. A recent St. Louis murder by minority teenagers beating a white-skinned Bosnian man to death with hammers has
