An epic American failure
The U.S. response to the killing of George Floyd and protests in its aftermath

June 1, 2020  •  New York Daily News

How a nation responds to a tragedy says much not only about the character of its people, but also the quality of its political leadership. The response of America's leaders on both sides of the political aisle to the killing of George Floyd and the looting and rioting it has sparked has been disappointing at best, outrageous at worst.

For those appalled by Floyd's death and the ensuing protests, mayhem and violence in 140 cities across the nation, consider another incendiary moment in American history.

The Palm Beach Model
