🔴Tuesday May 25th 2021 🔵2021年5月25日星期二 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 👦🏿🇺🇸👮George Floyd, one year on: policing in America 喬治佛洛伊德逝世一週年:美國警務 A year ago George Floyd was killed by Derek Chauvin, a Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on his neck for over nine minutes. Today Mr Floyd’s family will meet President Joe Biden at the White House. Reverend Al Sharpton, a civil-rights activist, called it a “nice” gesture, but hardly sufficient. He may have a point. Mr Floyd’s death sparked the biggest civil-rights protests in America’s history. Demonstrations were held in every state and around the world. Mr Chauvin was convicted of murder in April, and pressure for police reform has not subsided since. Many jurisdictions have passed reform bills, but despite Mr Biden urging Congress to pass a bill before the anniversary, no federal legislation has been approved. Both parties support some reform, but disagreements over its nature, and especially over qualified immunity, have stayed progress. In its present form the bill—named for Mr Floyd—remains unlikely to get the ten Republican votes it would need to pass the Senate. 非裔美國人喬治佛洛伊德 (George Floyd) 在一年前遭明尼亞波里斯 (Minneapolis,美國明尼蘇達州之最大城) 的白人警察蕭文 (Derek Chauvin) 以膝壓頸長達 9分多鐘致死。在今天,美國總統拜登將在白宮接見佛洛伊德的家屬。備受尊崇的民運人士 Al Sharpton 牧師肯定此為“善意”之舉,但仍有不足之處。他說得似乎有點道理。佛洛伊德的死亡激起了美國史上規模最大的民權示威遊行。美國各州,乃至全球各地,紛紛掀起了抗議活動。蕭文則在 (今年) 四月時遭判謀殺罪成立,而要求警務改革的呼聲亦自始至終從未消退。美國許多 (各級的) 司法管轄區已經通過了改革法案,但儘管拜登曾敦促美國國會在 (佛洛伊德) 案發一年內通過法案,目前仍尚未見 (任何) 聯邦層級的立法。民主、共和兩黨皆表示支持部分的改革,但雙方在豁免權資格等改革本質上的分歧依然僵持著。照目前的形勢來看,以佛洛伊德為名的 (改革) 法案恐難取得通過參議院所需之十張共和黨票數的支持。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Reverend (n.): 牧師 (名) ✅Gesture (n.): 姿態、手勢 (名) ✅Sufficient (adj.): 足夠的、充足的 (形) ✅Convicted of (adj.): 被以…定罪 (形) ✅Jurisdiction (n.): 管轄權/區、裁判權、司法權 (名) ✅Federal (adj.): 聯邦的 (形) ✅Disagreement (n.): 歧見、異議、爭論 (名) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專:https://reurl.cc/Lddode ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號:https://reurl.cc/Oqqoq3 ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道:https://reurl.cc/Y665dX ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台:https://reurl.cc/k00WZr — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽:leontheeconomist@gmail.com 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤:leontheeconomist@gmail.com
