Welcome to the new progressive era.
Among other things, the definition of progress is erasing our national borders, abolishing the police, censoring the internet, dismantling the gender binary, teaching White children to hate themselves and their country in public schools and redefining equal justice as social justice. The way this works is that the media cherry picks which incidents to elevate to national attention to push the anti-police narrative, “journalists” convict police officers of “white supremacy” and systematic racism and the DOSJ follows up by launching investigations and bringing federal charges to punish the evil doers.
“The Justice Department has filed federal criminal charges against Derek Chauvin, accusing the former police officer of using excessive force and violating the civil rights of George Floyd. Floyd died after Chauvin pressed on his neck for more than nine minutes on the pavement outside a convenience store last year in Minneapolis.
Three other former officers on the scene that day — Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao — have been charged federally in connection with Floyd’s death. Two of the men, Kueng and Thao, are accused of failing to intervene to stop Chauvin. All three face a charge of failing to provide medical care with “deliberate indifference” to Floyd’s suffering. They already are preparing for a state trial in August. …”
If Derek Chauvin had been found innocent by a jury, DOSJ’s plan was to arrest him on the spot on the basis of these federal charges, which were announced yesterday
“At best, the Justice Department’s indictment of Derek Chauvin and the three other former Minneapolis cops involved in George Floyd’s killing nearly a year ago is overkill. At worst, it is an exercise in political zeal that could undermine the accountability being achieved by state prosecutions. In the meantime, it is abusive — ironically so given that the charges are brought under the guise of upholding civil rights, though it obviously has not dawned on the Civil Rights Division’s social-justice warriors that police have civil rights, too. …
The other three former cops charged by the Justice Department are Chauvin’s partner, Tou Thao, a 35-year-old veteran of the force, and a pair of rookies, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng, 38 and 27 respectively, who were brand new to the job when they encountered Floyd last Memorial Day. The three are scheduled to be tried jointly in state court, starting August 23, on charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter. Furthermore, prosecutors are pushing to add a third-degree “depraved indifference” murder charge, just as they controversially did in Chauvin’s case. In less than two weeks (May 20), a state appellate court will hear arguments on whether that should be permitted. …”
Essentially, these Democratic-controlled power centers all act as one cabal now – the corporate media, the Department of Social Justice, the FBI, Big Tech, Big Business and Antifa and Black Lives Matter which are their state sponsored party militias – and they work to inflict “justice” on their enemies. This is why DOSJ looks the other way when Black Lives Matter riots or when mobs intimidate witnesses in their show trials. Those people have permission from their party to break the law.
