No wonder fuck knob wanted her as a lawyer. 

Quote

Jenna Ellis has accused leftists of influencing jurors to make former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin"pay for the sins of white people."

Ellis, an attorney for former President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign who worked on challenging the result of the election, appeared on Real America's Voice News after the verdict was delivered to blame leftists for the jury's decision.

Ellis argued that people believed Chauvin to be guilty because he's white and "must be made to pay for the sins of white people collectively."

Her white hood must be cutting off the oxygen to her brain.

Calming down is a recipe for maintaining the status quo and George Floyd becomes just another name amongst many.  It's my hope that this raw emotion continues to be expressed until real, legitimate, c

What a brave young woman. She captured the video that was used to convict him. Good thing she did as the initial police press release played fast and loose with the real details.(see below)

https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/21/us/darnella-frazier-derek-chauvin-reaction/index.html

This was the initial press statement from the MPLS PD police brief. "Man Dies After Medical Incident During Police Interaction." The article below details how it is "worth revisiting to understand the ways that police statements can hide the truth with a mix of passive language, blatant omissions and mangled sense of timing."(CNN)

Racist bus driver felt he had to make comment on the George Floyd murder and is now a former bus driver. 

Quote

A white school bus driver in Louisiana is no longer employed after making a racist remark to a Black student that referenced the murder of George Floyd. 

WWL-TV in Louisiana first reported that the driver scolded 11-year-old Rashad Gabriel after his face mask slipped below his nose as he ran to catch the school bus to Trist Middle School in St. Bernard Parish on April 9. 

Gabriel told the driver that he was out of breath after running to catch the bus, to which the driver responded, “Since George Floyd, that’s what you all say, but I don’t see a knee on your neck.”

The bus driver is no longer employed with the district, the St. Bernard Parish School System confirmed to The Hill.

Images and soundbites from the Derek Chauvin trial will linger in people's memories for years. But there is one heart-wrenching image that stands above the rest.

It was the look of indifference in Chauvin's eyes on May 25, 2020, as he casually drained the life out of George Floyd. That was as chilling as his knee on Floyd's neck. And what it represents could pose the biggest challenge to broader police reforms ahead.

That look was freeze-framed in what the prosecution dryly called "Exhibit 17." It shows Chauvin, the White Minneapolis police officer who was found guilty on all three counts in Floyd's death, glancing at a crowd of onlookers while bearing down on an unconscious Floyd, who is handcuffed and pinned face-first to the pavement.

The look on Chauvin's face is one of bored disinterest. His sunglasses are perched on his head and his hands rest in his pocket. He doesn't seem to notice Floyd at all. The only flicker of emotion on his face is his annoyance at the crowd that has gathered to plead for Floyd's life.

Guy's a fucking psychopath.  I'd say what I'd where I'd want him to serve his sentence but it's not very nice.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
