One step forward, two steps back

No sooner did we finally hold a police officer accountable for killing George Floyd, police in Columbus decided the only way to break up a fight was to shoot someone four times.

A public safety system that constantly turns to shooting people in the name of safety isn’t keeping anyone safe.

And while Chauvin’s conviction is a step in the right direction, it’s not enough.

We can have better public safety systems. We just need to decide we want them.
