Dear CNN,

I’m sure you have been inundated with emails and comments during the current news cycle, however, it would be remiss of me not to point out a detail that has been palpably overlooked in your commentary regarding George Floyd, Derek Chauvin and the other officers involved in the incident and the ensuing protests.

While this has been a tragic episode with lamentable consequences, I fail to see any mention of the fact that the officers performed their alleged* crime on camera. It was obvious they were being filmed and it makes me seriously doubt their intelligence.

I’m dismayed that your network is not addressing this fact as it is yet another example to prove that no problem is so insurmountable that it can’t be solved through education.

Roger L. Main

* I say “alleged” as a legal technicality as they have not yet been tried and convicted. Under American law a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
