Beautifully put, Steve. And well researched.
Law and order is one thing, but the rule of law is another. Trump thumbs his nose at the law every day. He says that as the president he is above the law. Right.
All most people want of their country is what it says on the tin. If murder is against the law and murderers are executed or sent inside for a long time, then how come some get away with murder?
That's not rule of law. That's a crooked system. If the knee had been on the other throat, you may bet that George Floyd would be lucky to face a trial. More likely his bullet-riddled body would have been held up as an example of swift justice.
