Civil rights leader Al Sharpton is calling the verdict a moment of “sunlight”.

“Today we can wipe our tears away and fight on for another day,” he just told a news conference.

“We don’t find pleasure in this,” he said. “We don’t celebrate a man going to jail. We would rather have George Floyd still here.”

Leading a group of civil rights leaders in prayer, Sharpton recalled other black victims at the hands of white police officers and noted the funeral of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, fatally shot by police just last week, is just two days away.

He said the verdict was proof that “if we don’t give up, we can win some rounds” and the fight will keep going until major police reform is passed at the federal level.

“The fight is not over.”

    What was G F’s job? Doctor, engineer, nurse, cashier? I wonder if he had been any one of them the police would’nt have had to resort to this sort of heavy handedness. Action reaction! Police are brutal because the society is out of control. While I am condemning the unnecessary brute force used, black people also have a part to play to improve the situation.
    Since nobody wants to address the root cause in this politically correct (mad) world, this is only going to get worse! Who dare say, go to school, study and get a job.

    Most Asian parents bring up their children instilling this in their children and most become employable. Obviously they don’t make enough noise, so no credit is given to Asian parents! Black people? Oh if he didn’t become a footballer, he would’ve been a criminal is the attitude the authorities have. So black youngster think they have only two choices.

    US must put their country right before the lecture the world about law and order, about freedom and democracy, etc.
    They are lethal as the Islamic terrorists.
