Yesterday, former police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murdering George Floyd last summer. While this verdict brings closure to this particular case and offers necessary accountability for Mr. Floyd’s senseless death, that verdict alone cannot deliver justice. In a just world, Mr. Floyd would still be alive. In a just world, Ma’Khia Bryant would not have been shot and killed yesterday.
