Shut up Jason Johnson that you're not

happy with three guilty verdicts in the Chauvin trial. What would you think if the verdicts were three non-guilty?

1. I understand his point, but I'm just going to hope this might be a glimmer of hope for other cases.

2. What else does he want? This trial delivered everything it could.

I like him, but sometimes he says stuff I don't get.

17. Black people get it.

This verdict still doesn’t mean the justice system is just.

There is relief but little to celebrate.

18. I totally agree with that part, but it sounded like

he wanted the trial itself to deliver more than it could. I think it will take a lot more than one successful conviction of a bad cop to fix a badly broken law enforcement system. If that was his meaning I do agree.

21. I agree with the OP

 

This is something to celebrate.

There is plenty of time to bemoan the inequality of this all. But right now, I'm going to celebrate.

These victories give us strength and sustenance to continue the fight and I'm going to drink it up.

25. Indeed. It sounded like he intended to be displeased no matter what.

I do get the point that this probably isnt a major turning point but he seemed to imply that this conviction essentially meant absolutely nothing. I dont agree. This has to have impact on police forces around the country. They will now think twice before using deadly force.

3. I agree I just watched him and thought JC man take the win

Unbelievable, accept that the right verdict came in and perhaps, this can be the start of change.

perhaps you should rethink your post

14. I agree. And he has a good point--does it require

a video to get justice in all cases?

Others were interviewed and they had different reactions. I think we viewers got a chance to hear multiple points of view.

7. Yeah

I heard him too. Jason was trying to say, there are many other cops who killed unarmed black men and women who were not not held accountable.

But I will take this as a win win for justice.

10. Too bitter to recognize the moment...

No one believes it's over and things are magically fixed

But

Applaud this moment

Yes I'm white-splainin' but his reaction was disappointing

I wonder why he's bitter?

And yes, as a black man, you're whitesplaining is not particularly interesting to a lot of people who look like me.

24. I understand why Jason feels the way he does

 

But it's not an either/or. I can be frustrated that we have so far to go. But today, I am rejoicing that we took this step.

16. Yes, on MSNBC

He was emphasizing that he was not happy. It took basically a televised murder for the verdict to go this way.

Count me another white-splainer, but I just wanted him to acknowledge that this result was better than the alternative. However small the victory, it is a teeny tiny step i the right direction. He was understandably focused on the many many miles yet to go.

23. Thank you. IMO this verdict is huge. I think it did, and will continue to break the blue wall...

of silence in other police forces against rogue, killer cops.

That's a good thing. Of course it shouldn't have had to come to this but it did, but now we go forward and cops will be under more scrutiny than they've ever been. They'll be more careful now that they know they can be convicted for murdering POCs.

26. If that's what he said, then I agree with you

This is a victory. And yes it's sad that other cases have not resulted in justice being served, but that's a separate discussion for another time. I was VERY concerned that there was going to be a holdout or two in the jury.

12. There isn't much this jury could do to change the history of what has happened.

Savor the victories you can achieve when they occur.
