"The verdict is a victory for justice...But the trial also demonstrates why the courts will remain a challenging venue to reform law enforcement in the United States," @GrahamDavidA writes. https://t.co/xsbFJDRZhS
As more vaccines go into arms, governments and businesses ought to relax some COVID-19 precautions, one of our staff writers argues. Read the latest Atlantic Daily, from @mimbsy: https://t.co/hXeWnvW6f9
Gardening TikToks. “New natural” furniture. Bingeing “Survivorman.” American culture is coming to grips with an emergency that is as intimate as it is immense. @megangarber on a new sort of environmentalism: https://t.co/Y7JFMI8GEp
For most of American history, the vice presidency was an insignificant office famously described as a “bucket of warm piss,” @realcpaz wrote last summer. That changed in 1976 with Walter Mondale: https://t.co/DDOcZ17APo
"European immigrants at the turn of the century faced nothing like the restrictions that prospective immigrants face today, let alone the immense, militarized deportation machine Americans have come to accept," @AdamSerwer writes: https://t.co/hHYc1vKpy6
Donald Trump wants Ron Johnson, one of his top allies, to run again. Democrats are eager for the chance to beat the senator from Wisconsin at the polls. But he is keeping people guessing, @IsaacDovere reports: https://t.co/4QMyGiW4n2
YouTube’s content for young kids is a largely unregulated, data-driven grab for toddlers’ attention, and, as we’ve seen with the rest of social media, its ramifications may be deeper and wider than you’d initially think, Alexis Madrigal wrote in 2018. https://t.co/W3Ln8DdhHq
Chris Christie is reportedly considering a 2024 presidential run. In 2012, @jeffreygoldberg attended a Bruce Springsteen concert with Christie, a superfan of the Boss. This is a tale of the ex-governor and the musician he loves—who refused to speak to him. https://t.co/kPSwjggjVO

.@AdamSerwer on yesterday's verdict, and the heartbreaking reality that until the actual system is fixed, there will be more Derek Chauvins. And more George Floyds. And more Breonna Taylors. And more Daunte Wrights. And more Adam Toledos ... https://t.co/LjNrN1VUEwhttps://t.co/3JpYzZ49ry
"When Chauvin’s defense attorney said Chauvin was merely following his training, he may not have been strictly correct... But he was probably right that Chauvin was doing what he believed he was both allowed and expected to do." https://t.co/iougX2NLZu
The institutional, cultural, and legal factors that led Chauvin to believe he could get away with kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes remain unchanged, and as long as that is the case, such deaths will continue to be a regular part of American life. https://t.co/1kGZGS34TQ
