The Week’s Best Cartoons: Chauvin Found Guilty

I just realized that I hadn’t yet shared TokyoSand’s cartoon post from Saturday!  Well, better late than never, yes?  Last week’s political cartoons were, understandably, largely focused on the guilty x3 verdict in the Derek Chauvin case, but there was more, too, like Earth Day …

See All The ‘Toons!

  1. Jill, what puzzles me is the rest of the world saw what everyone here saw and reacted well to the Chauvin verdict. The police have a tough job, but even the good ones make mistakes. But, to say all police officers are bad is not true, but neither is the converse. The police management and unions must clean up the problem they have let fester too long. Minutes following the Chauvin verdict, more shootings occurred. Keith

    • No, I know … or at least I believe … that 90% of police officers are good people trying their best to help make the world a little safer. But, as you say, even the best of them will make a mistake sometimes. Still, one cannot say that kneeling on a man’s neck for nearly 10 minutes while he gasps, says he can’t breathe, and calls for his mother is a ‘mistake’. That was pure evil, cruelty. You are so right, the problem starts at the top and with the unions who have historically protected officers even when they were obviously in the wrong. We haven’t had a single day without deaths from gunshots in this country for years, perhaps decades.

      • Jill, I would like to see a study to see if there is a correlation between more guns in America with police shooting deaths of people they come across. I think police are antsier, as they do not know who is packing, which is one reason why so many shots get fired. Keith

        • That would be an interesting study … I wonder if one has been done? I’m sure you are right, they don’t know what they are walking into when they get a call … but it doesn’t excuse things like the George Floyd murder … he had no weapon, they had him handcuffed and on the ground … he was no threat at all, just as Breonna Taylor, asleep in her own bed, was no threat at all. Sigh.
