And the Winner is, Justice.

The look on his face whether it was disbelief or anger said it all for me. I was to say the least, hopeful and a little surprised by the verdict. After all Rodney King is still fresh in my mind from when he was beaten by Los Angeles Police officers back on March 3, 1991.

Did he honestly believe that he would be exonerated by a jury who saw the video of him kneeling on George Floyd’s neck even after he begged Chauvin that he couldn’t breathe? It might have been different had it been in the South or in another era when police abuse of a Black man was at least ignored.

Justice prevailed this time. Next time? Who knows because different circumstances, different people would undoubtedly lead to a different result? For the time being I am happy that justice won and evil lost.
