How to stop a killing like that of George Floyd from ever happening again

Louis Dekmar and Collette Flanagan of CNN –

First there was the agonizing video, showing Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin grinding his knee into George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes as three of his colleagues watched and didn’t intervene. Then came the protests, a national wave of outrage coursing through communities large and small.Now the nation is watching Chauvin’s trial, underway in a Minnesota courtroom — nearly 10 months after Floyd’s death.

It’s a chance for the wheels of justice to finally turn. And it’s a moment to ask ourselves:If another officer were to engage in similar misconduct today, would his colleagues again refuse to step in and stop it?
