In George Floyd’s death, plenty of guilt to go around

The person providing a lethal weapon used in a crime shares guilt with the trigger-puller.

When this individual knows the trigger-man is a hot-head, his guilt is increased.

The lethal weapon in the killing of George Floyd was a police officer with a record of at least 16 misconduct complaints. The lethal weapon was a training officer, the man in charge, with 20 years on the force.

Who is more guilty?

The authority who assigned Officer Derek Chauvin as a trainer and senior authority over others? Or other officers expected to address him as “sir” and follow directions?

It is very important that the court address the guilt of the other three officers involved.

But how about this police chief and the seriousness of the misconduct complaints?
