I've been hesitant to ask this, but any thoughts on Chauvin

committing a slow purposeful murder of a black man, in front of many witnesses in broad daylight, with the intention of launching a race war? I mean, that's the only motive that makes sense to me. I'm immensely relieved that he was found guilty; but there never was an answer to 'why'.

In the Chauvin trial, was the 20 dollar bill ever proven to be fake?

And if it WAS a fake, is there any indication that George Floyd KNEW it was a fake? It just seems that establishing the justification for the initial call to the police would be an important fact for the jury to consider, whether for the prosecution to show George Floyd as a blameless victim or for the defense to further paint Floyd as an habitual criminal.
I tried to research how the 20 dollar bill issue was presented at the trial, and this was the best I could come up with;

If only they were as eager to defend the 15th Amendment

I hear defenders of the 2nd Amendment worry about 'baby steps', that could result in their guns being taken away. If only they were as worried about citizens losing the right to vote.

And its always the last line in these stories that is the kicker:
