Chauvin trial

I don’t understand at all the statement from Doug Nelson in the May 10 issue, “Chauvin trial dealt blows to rights workers need.” Isn’t serious jail time for killer cops after big protests in the street a victory? The masses in the streets are what made the state take this prosecution seriously. Isn’t a just and working-class demand to prosecute, convict, and jail killer cops? If so, is that a demand that deals a blow to the presumption of innocence?
