We can and must do better
By now, readers know about George Floyd's death under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer.
If you saw the video, it was no surprise Floyd's death led to riots on Minneapolis streets. I don't condone the damage, but can you blame them for being outraged?
Traditionally, I've given police the benefit of the doubt. However, in this case the footage speaks volumes. I struggled to make it through the entire video. It's that horrific.
I was stunned it took two days to put Floyd's suspected killer behind bars. Had the roles been reversed, Floyd would have been in jail within minutes.
As a society, we must demand more - for the victims, their loved ones and the million of great cops who get painted with a broad brush.
