The “Squad” has weighed in and they all agree the Chauvin guilty verdict wasn’t enough to absolve police of systemic racism.

Of course.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went off on a rant on Instagram Live after the verdict was read. She insisted that it was not “justice” because the government values “military and armaments more than it values healthcare, education, and housing.”

‘This is not justice, and I’ll explain to you why it’s not justice,’ Ocasio-Cortez said.

‘It’s not justice because justice is George Floyd going home tonight to be with his family. Justice is Adam Toledo getting tucked in by his mom tonight.’

She added: ‘Justice is when you’re pulled over, there not being a gun as part of that interaction because you have a headlight out. Justice is your school system not having or being a part of the schools-to-prison pipeline.’

Interesting that she said that Adam Toledo should be “tucked in at night” by his mother. If he hadn’t been wandering the streets with a gun at 2:40 AM firing rounds at cars in an area known for gang activity and then running from the cop…he’d be alive today. Does she really think that Toledo’s mom actually “tucked in” her gang-tattooed son nicknamed “Lil’ Homicide”?

Not to be out-done, the newest member of “the Squad”, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) said that the murder conviction is “not justice” but rather just “a step” towards racial equality.

‘This verdict is a step. It’s a popping of the lock to be able to get to the place where we can open the door and really start to do the work to save lives,’ Bush said.

‘And so, this egregious murder that happened, we can call it murder now, this egregious murder that happened it should not be that it has to look like that in order for us to have some type of semblance of what people call justice.’

Bush continued: ‘This was accountability, but it is not yet justice. Justice for us, it’s saving lives.’

The other members of “The Squad” reacted as well, and although some said that justice was served, they all agreed that it was not enough.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was “grateful” for the triple-guilty verdict.

Earlier in the day, she was saying that “more” needs to be done to combat police brutality. She did this at the spot where Daunte Wright was shot and killed by an officer who had meant to use her taser when Wright was resisting arrest. It was a horrible, horrible accident, but Democrats have pounced on the incident calling it another example of “systemic discrimination.”

So, what kind of action is she talking about? She had a tweetstorm or two to explain. Among her suggestions, pushing “antiracism”, socialism, and defunding “failed” police departments.

Meanwhile, their fellow “Squad” members asserted that justice was served, but more needed to be done.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) tweeted that “justice” means “investing in our communities, not police.”

Wannabe Squad member Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) used the opportunity to push the Democrats’ police reform bill.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) posted a video of her embrace with Rep. Cori Bush immediately after the verdict was read while they were in a room with the Congressional Black Caucus.

Protesters all over America insisted that if Chauvin was found guilty of killing George Floyd, then that would prove that there was still justice in America.

Now that the verdict was exactly what they wanted, they’re now saying it’s just not enough.

And these aren’t the activists in the streets, these are lawmakers.

“No Justice, No Peace,” indeed.

Perhaps we misunderstood what they meant.

Perhaps wasn’t a threat — maybe it was a statement of fact. It would seem that they want neither justice nor peace.
