One core point is that complaint systems do not work, especially for minorities:


If you are looking for someone to blame, why not blame Amy Klobuchar who served as the prosecutor for Hennepin County, which includes Minneapolis during the time the officer who pressed on George Floyd's neck had many complaints filed against him?

I wasn’t, but thank you for volunteering.


Amy Klobuchar had the position and the authority to do something about that police officer. Clearly, she didn't volunteer her help.

As in the vast majority of jurisdictions around the nation, Amy, as the County Attorney, referred this case to the grand jury.


New York State chief judge Sol Wachtler was famously quoted by Tom Wolfe in The Bonfire of the Vanities that "a grand jury would 'indict a ham sandwich,' if that's what you wanted."

If Amy Klobuchar wanted to indict that cop, it would have happened. And that cop was no ham sandwich. You are just unable to face the facts.

I get it, in your comprehension of things, the prosecutor for Hennepin County, which includes Minneapolis has nothing to do with indicting and prosecuting bad cops in her jurisdiction. She didn't do much about it as senator from her state either.
