In Falcon and Winter Soldier, there's a scene where the replacement Captain America is stripped of rank and fired because he murdered a guy on camera.

His defense is that he's doing exactly what the system created and trained and ordered him to do, but since he did it just a little too publicly, the system is gonna throw him under the bus so it can pretend its hands are clean.

I saw this the same day as the Chauvin guilty verdict came down. The parallels are eerie.
