Likely they're motivated less by political conviction than by fear of what always happens when righties and those who oppose them gather at the site du jour.

Along with everything else, the politics of hate and mistrust put the innocent in danger.

Former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane sentenced to 2 1/2 years in George Floyd killing

Former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison in a federal court on Thursday morning for violating George Floyd's civil rights.

Lane, 39, is one of three former Minneapolis police officers who were convicted earlier this year of depriving Floyd of his right to medical care as the handcuffed, unarmed 46-year-old Black man was pinned under the knee of their senior officer, Derek Chauvin, for more than nine minutes on May 25, 2020. Floyd's videotaped killing in Minneapolis sparked anti-racism protests and calls for police reform across the United States and around the world.
