Heartbreaking, just heartbreaking. Powerful witnesses. I hope Derek Chauvin gets convicted, but of course, he’s a cop and we know that evidence will have nothing to do with whether he’s convicted.
The teenager who filmed the fatal arrest of George Floyd testified today at the trial of Derek Chauvin:

The next four witnesses, who watched George Floyd plead for his life as Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck, are not being shown on camera because they are so young.
Let that sink in.
Too young to be shown on camera but witnesses in a murder trial.

As I see the photos again, the one thing I can’t get out of my mind are Chauvin’s hands in his pockets. The look of utter anguish on George Floyd’s face contrasted with Chauvin’s hands in his pockets, as if he were just chatting with friends, is gut wrenching and maddening.
