The condemnation of Floyd's death has been more universal, because the "heat of the moment" argument often made in defense of police shootings is missing. Cop had 9 mins to rethink what he was doing, but kept choking & this comes after Eric Garner showed these holds can kill.
RIP to Sean “Nitty” Reese, one of the best players on one of the best teams I covered. He was a star on Perry’s Blue Steeldefense that didn’t give up a point in the City League in 2002. And he sent me this message when I was laid off in March.
Mayor de Blasio announced an investigation into the NYPD's aggressive conduct during George Floyd protests. He's facing outrage over his defense of the department, including a police car that drove into protestors blocking a street.

Just so we're all clear, Trump says he won't use the Defense Protection Act to order companies to make more equipment to save lives because he "doesn’t want to interfere in the free market." Explain to me how bailing out corporations isn't interfering in the free market?
I’m calling on the Federal Government to nationalize the medical supply chain. The Federal Government should immediately use the Defense Production Act to order companies to make gowns, masks and gloves. Currently, states are competing against other states for supplies.
