In Memory of George Floyd


F LoBuono

When I was a young man playing football, in order to establish the killer instinct thought necessary to succeed in such a violent game, even with a comfortable lead, our coaches would goad us to finish the job, i.e. win the game by stepping on their necks. Of course, they were speaking metaphorically (MOSTLY) but the message was clear: when they’re down keep them there. SHOW NO MERCY.

It’s as ugly as it is vicious.
But, that was just a game.

We are lost when that mentality trumps the rule of not only law, but common decency.

That cop in Minnesota has his knee on that man’s neck for 8 and half minutes. 8 and a half minutes!!!

That man’s name is George Floyd.

Never forget.
