“This is an important moment as the world watched our country’s justice system work as it is designed to – fairly and impartially administer justice. This should not be a rarity, but a certainty, we all should be able to count on. We continue to mourn with the family of George Floyd and all victims of crime. We can and should do better and as a compassionate society, we must continue to address issues of justice and fairness for every individual.”
