There were live videos of so many of these killings.

They did not spark massive protest.

Even the poor man who was running away in South Carolina, the cop shot him, and then re-set the scene, and no one would have known except for the video.

I know I'm being cynical, but I feel as though, if there had not been a pandemic, this death would not have sparked outrage.
