You really think police in the US need better funding? Their budget is currently just slightly less than the Chinese military's budget. For all intents and purposes they're the third most well funded military force in the world. And you think they need more funding?
Maybe if the police took their current budget, or God forbid a smaller budget, and put it towards practical things instead of tanks and military-grade weapons a lot if issues could be solved. If you start equipping your police like soldiers is it really any surprise when they start thinking they can kill with impunity?

George Floyd posed zero threat. He resisted, but he never attempted to hurt anybody. He would still be alive if Chauvin hadn't murdered him. The jury saw that and found him guilty with very little deliberation. It was a murder caught on video. It's not often that a jury gets that kind of evidence to go off of.
