Just a question: Who are the protests aimed at?

As far as I can tell, everyone in the country is sickened by George Floyd's death. Nobody is defending the cop. I mean nobody, I haven't heard a single defense of his actions. We are all sickened by what he did.

I can see memorial services and gatherings. They are needed, but anger at all cops is misplaced. Anger at that particular police department may be warranted but it should be used to demand change to procedures and accountability within that department.
