I notice two threads have been merged. Before the merger I pointed out that juror intimidation would have stopped at second degree manslaughter. Second and third degree murder was a statement by the jury that they thought Chauvin was truly guilty.
It was a statement that they were intimidated. This was not an intentional killing, it was an accidental one. No different than if you got into a fight with somebody at a bar and his head hit the corner of the bar as he was falling down from a blow you delivered and it killed him.
I know how the cop haters feel, but be honest for once. If this lowlife wasn't all doped up and taking care of his serious medical conditions, do you think he's still be alive today with what Chauvin did to him? I do, and that's because I've seen police officers do the same thing to unruly suspects many times.
