On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd.

Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year.

Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself.

The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd.

“Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference.

Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.”

The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct.

“I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.”

Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly placed on suicide watch.

There is truly nowhere for parents to go for entertainment for their kids that is free of the radical transgender agenda and now even the Muppets are pushing this sexualized garbage on kids. The Disney Junior kids show Muppet Babies recently featured an episode with Muppet favorite Gonzo going transgender. In the episode, Gonzo’s friend, Summer, happily told Gonzo that she was going to dress like a “princess” for a royal ball. But when Gonzo became excited that he also could wear a dress, Summer said he was a boy so he couldn’t dress like a princess. After he said he wanted to wear a dress, Summer told Gonzo, “But Gonzo, Piggy and I are the princesses, we wear the dresses.” “That’s right! According to the royal handbook, the girls come as princesses, and the boys come as knights,” Piggy added. Gonzo was portrayed as being upset over the conversation. He wanted to dress like a princess, but was told he cannot do so. As Gonzo sulked, Rizzo the Fairy RatFather appeard to magically bestow a gown and mask on Gonzo so he can attend the ball as a female, too. So, Gonzo attends the ball as a mysterious woman named Gonzorella. And then comes the big reveal. https://youtu.be/Rw6h1NZkzQk https://youtu.be/BkyaenLCZ8k “Everyone, there’s something I need to tell you,” Gonzo said, placing a glass slipper on his foot. “The princess who came to your ball tonight was me. I’m Gonzorella!” When Gonzo was questioned about the dress, he answered, “You all expected me to look a certain way.” “I don’t want you to be upset with me. But I don’t want to do things because that’s the way they’ve always been done either. I want to be me,” he said. https://twitter.com/HistoryMuppet/status/1418996764397420544 Unsurprisingly, the Disney videos had comments turned off on its…

American ‘Medical’ Association Argues to Remove Sex from All Birth Certificates

The American Medical Association is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and it should be removed from birth certificates.

The American Medical Association, an organization supposedly dedicated to science and medicine, is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and so the designation should be removed from all birth certificates. The AMA once again proves that politics, not science or medicine, is what drives them. https://twitter.com/WebMD/status/1421312166108581888 “Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female, and making that information available on the public portion, perpetuates a view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity. This type of categorization system also risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization,” said AMA Board Chair-Elect Sandra Adamson Fryhofer, M.D. Not all doctors were on board with the move. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Robert Jackson told WebMD Health News that he opposed the measure. “We as physicians need to report things accurately,” Jackson said. “All through medical school, residency, and specialty training we were supposed to delegate all of the physical findings of the patient we’re taking care of. I think when the child is born, they do have physical characteristics either male or female and I think that probably should be on the public record. That’s just my personal opinion.” In any case, it is clear that the AMA is not interested in facts or science. Eliminating gender on birth certificates would put the health of many people in danger when doctors can’t easily discover what biological gender their patients are.
