Photo: Jesse Jackson weighs in on police violence

After breakfast at Valois Restaurant, 1518 E. 53rd St., Rev. Jesse Jackson expressed his view that — with the video of George Floyd's killing and the expert testimony suggesting pressure applied to his neck was the principal cause of Floyd's death — the jury would be able to convict police officer Derek Chauvin.

With respect to the shooting death of Daunte Wright by a female white police veteran of 26 years who claimed that she thought she was firing her Taser when she shot the 20-year-old, Jackson said that he did not believe her story that, after 26 years on the force, she could not distinguish between her gun & and a Taser.
