9 Minutes and 29 Seconds

Today the jury reached its verdict to determine Derek Chauvin's fate. The man who let his whole body weight land through his knee on George Floyd's neck - on Floyd's precious life. Das didn't have practice this evening - he had to stay a little past the time of school being out so I needed... Continue Reading →
