The Story Of George Floyd Isn’t A Story Of Good And Evil, But Does America Know That?
Revisiting the video evidence is not to convince anyone that Floyd is guilty or Chauvin innocent, but to illustrate just how sad, murky and complicated that day in Minneapolis, Minn. was. May 25 didn’t tell a story of heroes or villains, and the whole 30 minutes don’t fit neatly into any political cause, even if eight minutes seem to. As the trial of Chauvin begins, let us pray for the soul of Floyd, for all who are involved, for Minneapolis, and for our country. We need it.
