Rocker Bruce Springsteen proclaimed this week that the United States needs “systemic changes” in its “law enforcement departments” in the wake of the police involved death of George Floyd.
“That song is almost eight minutes long, and that’s how long it took George Floyd to die with a Minneapolis officer’s knee buried into his neck, and that’s a long time.”
“As we speak, 40 million people are unemployed, 100,000 plus citizens have died from COVID-19 with only the most tepid and unfeeling response from our White House,” said Springsteen, who failed to mention that 100,000 was doctor Anthony Fauci’s low-end estimate of coronavirus deaths — with the maximum measures put in place to prevent it.
“As of today, our black citizens continue to be killed unnecessarily by our police on the streets of America,” segued Springsteen during his monologue.
On Tuesday, a black retired St. Louis police captain, David Dorn, was killed after protests over the death of George Floyd turned violent.
