Derek Chauvin didn’t get American justice, he got social justice

Just In…

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty in the murder of George Floyd, so let’s pretend for a second that, like liberals, I don’t trust the criminal justice system. Here’s how I might react: I might take to the streets to riot, maybe throw things at cops, and bash some windows. If I didn’t do that, I would instigate others to do it for me and then justify it or, at minimum, excuse it.

I would do this for days, weeks, and months. I would make anyone who disagreed with me uncomfortable for doing so. I would never shut up about how unfair and unjust our criminal justice system actually is.

Fortunately, for me and small-business owners, landlords, and my friends and family, I’m not a liberal. I’m a critical thinker, and I trust the system. I disagree with the verdict, but I trust that the jurors deliberated honestly and came to what they believed to be a fair conclusion.

It appears that it wasn’t even close for Chauvin. The jury returned within 24 hours of deliberation to render guilty verdicts on all three charges — second- and third-degree murder, plus manslaughter.

Rep. Maxine Waters: Controversial mission

But how could it be? The entire year of 2020 saw the media build up a narrative about a racist white cop kneeling on the neck of an innocent black man. It wasn’t the truth, but, hey, there was an election at stake. Journalists believed that then-President Donald Trump needed to be taken down. Riots across the nation would only help with that task.

And when more information came to light contradicting that narrative, the media not for one second backed down. And leading Democrats only grew more bold. President Joe Biden on Tuesday, hours before the verdict, said there would only be one “right” verdict — a conviction. Days before that, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters took to the streets just miles away from the trial setting to agitate Black Lives Matter activists, telling them to get “more confrontational” if there was no murder conviction. Former President Barack Obama last week called Chauvin a murderer.

This is the new American justice. We call it “social justice.” It’s no longer about reasonable doubt and due process. It’s narrative and intimidation.

Chauvin will certainly appeal, and the judge overseeing his trial has already said that Waters’s comments alone could be enough to see the trial overturned on appeal.

Good. That’s the justice system I still believe in, but I’m not a liberal.
