Sheriff on George Floyd
Comment by TS Sheriff
I hope Malaysians are also following the tv coverage on the court trial in Minneapolis on the police brutality which led to the death of George Floyd, a black man. It’s fascinating to hear the evidence which the prosecution is presenting thru the testimonies of witnesses, including whites who were shocked at what happened. A 9 yr old girl also testified. Her testimony was compelling.
The whole world is watching as this is not an ordinary case of police brutality but a test of justice for the black community vs the whites.
While the trial brings out the dark side of America, it also highlights the country’s transparency in dealing with its internal problems.
In many countries, there are deliberate policies to hide the bad things that happen among govt agencies. The law in Malaysia prevents the media from discussing and exposing what it knows what really happened.
Watch the murder trial in Minneapolis and learn from it so that Malaysia can become a better country on transparency, integrity, and accountability.
