    Most of the abolitionist leaders are saying this is not a big deal or meaningless. That itís an ineffective rehashing of Obama era policy and that it doesnít apply to DHS which is where a lot of the private contracts are.

    Also, Illinois governor is signing the Pretrial Fairness Act to end money bail in Illinois. Huge win for organizers.

    George Floyd's family is getting a $27 million settlement from the City of Minneapolis. Or more correctly, George Floyd's family is getting something around $20 million, and the attorneys are getting a nice chunk.

    I'm a lawyer, but it just seems like an odd system that the when a family member gets tragically murdered the upshot is that the extended family of the victim and some random attorney advocate who holds some press conferences and puts together a compelling presentation hits the lottery. Not proposing any better alternatives or even disagreeing with the result.

    What happens to the people who do $27 million worth of wrong and the people that taught them to do it, support them doing it and defend them doing it?

    Cotten is right. We will be be grossly under-incarcerated until all Trump family members and their traitorous followers are in supermax or GITMO.
