Some of them even called for abolishing the police.
Here’s what Steven Colbert stated during his Tuesday remarks on his show.
“This nation does not have a great track record, but at least, in this case, this man faces accountability,” Colbert said.“But hopefully this is a step toward a future where police being held accountable for their actions isn’t headline material, and to hope that accountability today is determined for tomorrow,” he said.
Now on to the work!.
All of us demand an end to white supremacy and white privilege.
How many innocent black and brown ppl are in prison? Free them all! Arrest all police who break the law. Remove all racist cops. End policing as we know it. It doesn’t work.

Even Justin Timberlake didn’t restrain himself from the public praises on the verdict.
This verdict is just the first step in a long line of injustice against the Black community, often with no consequences. The work is not nearly done. While there are many more families waiting for justice, my heart is with George Floyd’s family right now. #PoliceReformNOW @NAACP

It was normal for Ice Cube and Kerry Washington to support this verdict.
The jury did the right thing but will the judge do the right thing? Be careful family…the Empire always strikes back.

A guilty #verdict. But this fight for justice is not over. We have a lot of work to do. There is more fight ahead of us. But RIGHT NOW please take CARE of yourself. And let’s take care of each other. Prayers and love to the family of #GeorgeFloyd.

“Today, a jury in Minnesota found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd last May. It was a murder in the full light of day and it ripped the blinders was off for the whole world to see the systemic racism the vice president just referred to. There’s systemic racism that’s a stain on our nation’s soul.”
