    It's crazy to think about the fact that meetings were had amongst her staff on what the statement should be if there was an acquital/conviction/mistrial, and had prepared statements for each

    and that's what was decided on.

    It's also crazy to think about the idea that there weren't meetings about this, and it was decided 'eh, I'll just wing it'

    I don't agree with prisons and I don't think they help, and that's true of cops that murder people too. I don't think sticking this guy in a cage for 20 years will make society or him better or bring back George Floyd. But the conviction is good to see and hopefully will be a catalyst for change, as much as it is a single thing much too late for all of the other victims of this kind of violence. It is upsetting that so many people were so surprised that the jury went against him.

    The jury's verdict delivers accountability for Derek Chauvin, but not justice for George Floyd. Real justice for him and too many others can only happen when we build a nation that fundamentally respects the human dignity of every person. The trauma and tragedy of George Floyd’s murder must never leave us. It was a manifestation of a system that callously devalues the lives of Black people. Our struggle now is about justice—not justice on paper, but real justice in which all Americans live their lives free of oppression. We must boldly root out the cancer of systemic racism and police violence against people of color.

    I think Austin Walker (of Waypoint) puts it pretty well here:

    It would need to happen a hell of a lot more for that to happen. As is, we've gotten one out of dozens of national headline cases, and hundreds of cases we've never even heard about because nobody happened to be there with a phone filming.

    Very good odds if you're a cop.

    This is a type of sentiment that I see somewhat often, in various constructions ("don't let such and such have died in vain" being the most common, and Pelosi's version being especially brazen), and it pisses me off every time. I feel like it really isn't that hard to not say "it's good that you died, actually" to murder victims!

    I broadly agree with your take on prisons, but I'm don't consider Chauvin to be an appropriate place to start that change.

    There's plenty of other people I'm going to worry about getting stuck in our prison system before I get around to killer-cops.

    Fucking Mitt Romney released a better statement than her. So many other Democratic politicians had better statements. She easily could have followed their lead.

    Jesus Christ, Pelosi

    It's like she's quoting a scene from a movie

    This isn't real to her

    It also feels vaguely reminiscent of Christian theology, all "hey thanks for sacrificing yourself for our sins Jesus, great job getting murdered for us, we'll do our best for you"

    Yeah, it's a very othering sort of statement. "All black people are virtuous warriors and martyrs for the higher cause of black liberation before which I'm expected to simply stand in awe", rather than "black people are regular humans who are tortured and murdered for literally no reason by a ludicrously cruel society (which I happen to be partially in charge of, oops)".

    Don't think Pelosi's response is stupid. I think its insidious. Its something they do constantly. Try to turn the shameful murder of a man just trying to live his life into a act of civil resistance. It feels better if Floyd was a hero and not a victim.

    It's not justice until the police stop murdering people and destroying lives with impunity, is the long and short of it. It's good that this cop faced consequences, if for no other reason than it might bring his family some measure of peace.

    AOC, of course, is on point.
    That a family had to lose a son, brother and father; that a teenage girl had to film and post a murder, that millions across the country had to organize and march just for George Floyd to be seen and valued is not justice.

    And this verdict is not a substitute for policy change.

    AOC is a member of Congress.
