Chauvin trial holds mirror up to police training

Most of the millions of people who have seen the awful video of the death of George Floyd under the knee of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin interpret that event as a murder.

My parents, like many immigrants, came to the United States from Korea for a better future. They were taught that this is the land of endless opportunities and that there were rules to follow in order to reach that better future. The rules were so strong, clear and always prevalent: to make sure they never took their eyes off the prize. These "rules" were supposed to keep the American ideal alive but in effect kept foreigners in their place and away from the majority. This is the "model minority" myth.
