We're not backing down, #BreonnaTaylor deserves justice. The officers who murdered her still have not been charged.
Now more than ever we must keep up the pressure and demand @louisvillemayor act now.
Dial 844-298-2731 to demand these officers are charged and fired! #SayHerName
BREAKING: Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison will charge three other Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd's death with aiding and abetting murder, reports @StarTribune. Former officer Derek Chauvin's charge will be elevated to second-degree murder.
Be clear. This happened because folks took to the streets. Because of protest, @GovTimWalz had Attorney General Keith Ellison take over the prosecution.
Now these officers are finally charged with aiding/abetting a murder:
Tou Thao, 34
J. Alexander Kueng, 26
Thomas Lane, 37
This is remarkable. This young man was yelling his voice raw trying to communicate with the police, seeking understanding, and two cops in riot gear just strolled over and plucked him out of the crowd
Replying to @jimatdeltaco: This says it all. A brave and beautiful speech that should live in the memory of all Americans, followed by the cowardi…

White people, while you're recoiling over the murder of #AhmaudArbery, think about all the Black folks who've been murdered in the USA where there was no video. Think about all the times people have gotten away w/ it, all way back to slavery. Then do something. #JusticeForAhmaud
Brooke and I had a lot of ups and downs mentally getting through QuaranTime. These last 2 weeks we had a surge of creativity and wrote and shot our own sketch show FROM HOME!
Dozens of new coronavirus deaths reported in Georgia:
Georgia: 14th highest infection/7th lowest testing rate; less econ resilient & 1000s of low-wage workers already forced to risk their lives to make a living. Weakened healthcare w/closed rural hospitals, no Medicaid expansion & a doctor shortage. Reopen? Dangerously incompetent.
