The video shows an appalling absence of professionalism and utter contempt for George Floyd by Chauvin who had a long service that had bred contempt
in him. Furthermore, the other officers standing around while Chauvin dealt out his contempt on Floyd, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J Alexander Kueng,
are just as culpable and complicit in Floyd's death as Chauvin is. The full force of justice should be levelled at all four officers, with the
ultimate result that all four end up doing prison sentences, and for the city itself to pay hefty compensation to Floyd's family. Clearly, there is a
culture of contempt within the Minneapolis police force and that needs rooting out entirely.
However, I have to disagree that the police in Minneapolis are deliberately starting a race war. Yes, people of that community have a right to be
outraged and angry, but that does not entitle them to loot local businesses or harm local people. The rioting and the looting will move attention away
from George Floyd and the police force, and give ammunition to racists to argue their ideology.
Allow justice to prevail through a thorough investigation that should bring about recommendations for re-training the police as to how to handle
people they have already subdued.
