Justice today … and tomorrow?

Just as the Derek Chauvin case seemed open and closed to millions of us around the world — thanks to Darnella Frazier’s video of the murder — it apparently was just as open and closed to the jury. Thanks, no doubt, to Ms Frazier’s video, as well.

The verdict was reassuring, finally, that a successful case can be put together against an arrogant cop whose view is that he is the judge and jury. Chauvin will go to prison for many years, an ex-cop who killed a Black man in a population of men who won’t be very accepting of him, to say the least.
