“Floyd died after being restrained by Minneapolis police officers on May 25.” “Restrained”? Seriously? How about “Minneapolis police officers killed innocent, unarmed, nonviolent George Floyd because he was black”?

The title and content of your June 3rd cover editorial are just as outrageous as your caption. You say that change must come, however that the looting and rioting are distracting. You’re prioritizing the wrong part. How about “looting and rioting are distracting, but change must come”? You claim that the looters are just as bad as the killers of George Floyd. How dare you equate property damage with the taking of an innocent human life? This is appalling. You should do better.
