From the reaction of the general public, even people who generally deify the police and fear minorities if not actually outright hating them, the mayor, the chief of police, the DA, and governor, the chances of that cop walking are pretty much zero. He might not get convicted on the charges some will want, and might plead guilty to something else to get less time while avoiding a trial that would be a media circus, but I have rarely been more certain of anything than the belief that the officer who knelt on Floyd’s neck is going to prison.
I’ll believe it when I see it, but I certainly hope you’re right. For the first time that I can remember, in addition to the counter-productive looting, there was an actual strike on a police dept. and I understand that it’s in ruins. So that was fantastic so far. 

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
