  2. Judgement was rendered against White law enforcement whose crimes have accumulated over decades and in this case was unfortunately heavy handed in its verdicts due to the obivious ignorance of reasonable doubt and qualifications for guilt under the different charges.

    Chauvin was not judged as an individual but suffered the sins of his profession from slavery to present day.

    The weight of world wide politics and activism crushed this court and demanded the "right verdict".
    Not only demanded but threatened for the "right verdict".
    Take note of those in power who interjected themselves to pray for the "right verdict".
    A tragic Perfect Storm of cultural shame, guilt, grievances and emotions resulting in misdirected unmeasured retribution.

  3. If you're white and you think this case says anything about you or your race, then you've got serious self-esteem issues. I'm a white Republican and I support police. I also know that this was a bad cop and murdering scumbag who deserves to rot in jail. Good riddance.

  4. Murder in broad daylight with all kinds of cameras rolling. Crowd of people and other cops watching. Yeah,right!
    The paperwork alone would be a great deterrence.
    I would consider Attention Deficit Disorder before outright "eff everybody I am going to intentionally kill this man in front of you" murder.
    Use your reasoning abilities to explore other options to how this man died or why he was allowed to die.

    1. No excuse for putting your knee on a man's neck for 7 minutes and 46 seconds. If that's you're defense, then you don't have one.

  5. Keep in mind George Floyd personally paved this road over many years leading up to his drugged up encounter arriving at that intersection of his life/ death. His halo would be a little less shinny if he had driven into your family's lane of traffic and caused their deaths. This too was a possible alternate trajectory that he was on that day before he was intercepted under the knee of the police. He was a menace past and present at that time. A tragedy of his own making over lots of time and many contributions. But by all means blame the murderous cop for intervening and murdering him in front of the whole universe. I just can't reason that to be logical.

    1. Floyd didn't kill anybody that day. He was murdered by an officer. A jury agreed. Nobody cares about your logic. The facts, not feelings are what matter.

    There are a lot of folks who would like the police to disappear. The black bad actors would be very sorry in short order, and begging the cops to return.

  7. 3:01. Even if it is my own family I will not champion a violent career criminal over the worst of law enforcement. Criminal behavior and using drugs, especially at the same time puts them and others in harms way. That CHOICE can and does have horrible consequences, hopefully for only the the perpetrator. No remorse for a violent criminal drug addict that had a CHOICE that day. Sorry for Chauvin that had to go to work that day.

  8. @3:01AM=...Floyd was going kill himself or somebody eventually. Done himself in with a little possible encouragement from the cops. Either way, yawn. Our Blacks kill em wholesale around here most every week. Yawn again, nobody cares unless it's whitey or a cop doing the killing. Better yet if it's a White cop so BLM, Ben Bubba Crump and the usual suspects can start the grifting and politicing. Fatigue, yawn.

  12. When they led Chauvin out in handcuffs I just realized what a small man he is in weight and height. Read he was 5'9", 140 pounds. Much too small for gorilla fighting. Should have just handcuffed Floyd and let him flop around until he expired naturally. Dumb choice to control him in anyway after handcuffing.
    Not worth 70 years for being a dumb sh!t!
    Not worth being the world's most hated man even eclipsing murderous dictators past and present. While at the same time George Floyd has been granted Sainthood and is on the road to achieving greater stature than MLK JR. Speaks volumes as to the direction of our location and direction in the rabbit hole.

  13. This is nothing but political theater and I’m sick to death of it and all the sr echoing monkeys on the left screaming for the blood of white people and about non existent ‘institutional’ and ‘systemic’ racism.

  14. BLM is the new KKK.
    Just read of a judicial scholar saying this will go to the Supreme Court for the KKK like tactics of jury influence commited by Maxine Waters and others. Many other fair trial objections too.
    Predicts verdicts will be ultimately reversed not on appeal to Minnesota but the Supreme Court of the US. Hopefully before Biden packs the court.

  15. you're talking about the old supreme court...the current supreme court is just like everyone else who is not on the extreme left...afraid to say or do anything

  16. How insane would it be if White folks were to champion the next White violent career criminal drug addict that had a bad outcome with police while high on drugs during the commission of a crime? Can't you just envision all the choir photos, signage, banners and speeches about Joe Bob. Almost brings a tear to my eye for the poor dumbsh!t.

    No! of course you can't. Won't ever happen. White folks don't honor criminals, Blacks folks do. We are so far apart on this issue we can't even see each other with a telescope. MLK Jr. Would stroke out if he could see how his dream has devolved. Shame, I championed him and still do, but now I have come to have recent racist leanings due to all the White bashing, BS complaints and ridiculous demands. Not surprisingly so do a lot of other White people. A lot?

    1. You described my thoughts perfectly. Thank you. I’ve never felt this much fear of and antipathy toward black people as I do now in my entire life.
