The odd report explained, "Senior Democratic and Republican aides — who would never let their bosses say so on the record — privately told Axios the convictions have lessened pressure for change. They noted the aftermath of mass shootings: time and again, Congress has failed to pass gun control legislation, and the conversation ultimately moves on until another terrible event occurs."
Unfortunately for the officials, moments before the Chauvin verdict was announced, Ohio teenager Makiyah Bryant called police for help and they shot and killed her. Just a few hours after the shooting, police were caught chanting "blue lives matter" behind the police tape at those gathering around them.

Ma'Khia Bryant is the name of the unarmed girl who was in an altercation with another kid in her foster care home when she quickly rushed to call the police for help saying a woman had a knife. She hung up and rushed back outside, said her aunt.
Outside of the scene, a small group of people stood. Police tape was stretched around a home with the officers standing behind it. That was when the officers behind the tape told the group, largely people of color, "blue lives matter."

Gutfeld told his co-host that he’s “glad” Chauvin was found guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd, because his neighborhood was looted once and he wanted “a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames.”

John Bolton, Donald Trump’s former national security adviser turned outspoken critic, has commissioned a new poll to illustrate that the former president’s grip on the Republican Party is loosening.
The poll, released on Tuesday morning, showed Trump’s “very favorable” numbers among Republican voters dropped 19 points since a separate poll from a different pollster taken in October 2020. It also showed that 56 percent of self-identified Republican primary voters would support a candidate other than Trump in the 2024 primary.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A family member has confirmed to 10TV that the person shot and killed by a police officer in southeast Columbus Tuesday was 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.
Officers were called to the 3100 block of Legion Lane, north of Chatterton Road, just after 4:30 p.m. for a disturbance.
The family says Bryant called the police for help because girls were fighting outside her house.
Bryant was taken to Mount Carmel East in critical condition where she was later pronounced dead.
In a statement tweeted Tuesday evening, Mayor Andrew Ginther said "a young woman tragically lost her life" and that there is body camera footage of the incident. Ginther asked for people to "remain calm" and allow investigators to gather the facts.
Member of Mother's of Murdered Columbus Children and others have gathered in the area, one person with a sign reading "enough is enough" and another with "Black kids matter."
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is on scene for the investigation.
This is a developing story and will be updated.

“True and meaningful justice has been reinvented to mean ‘social justice’ — the political and cultural retribution for viewpoint sins of the day,” Ellis said.

"If we are being honest with ourselves, we know true justice is about much more than a single verdict in a single trial," said anchor Nicolle Wallace. "I keep thinking about a conversation you and I had weeks ago about the 17-year-old eyewitness to George Floyd's killing. She's the one who filmed the bystander video. When I listen to Keith Ellison and the prosecutors talk about the case they made, they were given some extraordinary human experiences by the eyewitnesses themselves."
"Right. And if it wasn't for Darnella Frazier pulling out her phone, videotaping the death of George Floyd and uploading it on her Facebook page, would we be here?" said Glaude. "That's a key point. I want to raise her up. My stomach has been in knots. I have been telling you this, Nicolle. This is a moment of relief, but it is an inaugural moment. It is a beginning. It is not an end. Justice is a practice. It is not an end. We need to understand to be in this moment of transition to change the very nature of policing."

Speaking on the network about an hour after the verdict came in, she claimed, "Clearly the verdict is supported by the facts... make no mistake, the facts are solid on this verdict, this verdict will be held on appeal."
In most police brutality cases, the cop has what is referred to as "qualified immunity," which the Supreme Court decided in 1982, gives cops the right to do whatever they want if they're "afraid for their life." It's how many police have been able to wiggle out of prosecution by saying "he had a gun."
