. . . I haven't been following this trial AT ALL.
I just didn't care.
I only found out yesterday that the Jury wasn't sequestered. I mean, really? They had their phones and access to all that media that entire time?
wtf?

Yea, really. Considering how important the trial was, the jury should have been sequestered.

Wake up & smell the coffee.

No court would dare overturn the three guilty sentences.

The resultant insurrection among certain folks would plunge this nation into the worst crisis since the South declared independence.

Justice is blind, except when she isn't. This time she isn't. She knows that certain folks have the nation over the barrel.

Seeing the nation in flames would embarrass the nation before the world, and the (Biden)-Harris administration would be stained.

Therefore, not to worry, everything will go according to script: the ex-cop will be sentenced to life imprisonment.

Then the activists will start looking for their next martyr.
Let it come, people are tired of the racist shit.

She very clearly said the evidence showed that Chauvin was guilty

They did that in the Rodney King asskicking and the verdict didn't come back the way the hateful sonofofabitches wanted so they did a do over with a racist Negro jury.

Yep, and the same with the OJ trial too.

But we have BLM in bed with the whole supposedly legit Progressive Socialist political party.

As soon as that neanderthal Waters opened up those big lips of hers the judge should have questioned every juror if what she said tainted their view of the case. If any member said yes, then it should have been ruled as a mistrial.
They were reminded everyday not to watch the news or discuss it with others. So the judge asking them about Waters would have been telling them something they didn't know.

Christensen in particular cited the testimony of Dr. Martin Tobin, an expert on the physiology of breathing who was the prosecution's key witness. Tobin "really did it for me, he explained everything, I understood it, down to where he said this was the moment that (Floyd) lost his life. That really got to me," Christensen said.

She had no accolades for the Chauvin defense team, led by attorney Eric Nelson.

"I don't think they had a good impact," she told CBS. "I think (Nelson) over-promised in the beginning and didn't live up to what he said he was going to do."

And do you think they all did that? Don't you believe it.

One juror: "I did not want to go through rioting and destruction again and I was concerned about people coming to my house if they were not happy with the verdict."

Appeal on the way.


Do you think we are that dumb.

Yes.

Next question.

Really, all that is needed here is blabbering Maxine Waters threatening the world along with her side kicks Biden and Obama for an appeal.

The judge also chose not to sequester the jury, so they saw all of it.

You must think we , the democrats, are stupid.
You are.

Is that what you call evidence for an appeal? I think the court might want a little more than your cynical guess that the jury was merrily breaking its oath every night. I think you WANT to see this overturned. Am I right?

The jury should have been sequestered and the trial moved out of the shithole. There is no way Chauvin could have a fair trial otherwise with all the shit that happened and the shit that came out of that scumbag's mouth.

Do you think he was unfairly convicted?

The sad thing about this trial was that it proved that intimidation works IF you let it. IMHO, the judge's decisions to hold this trial in Minneapolis and deny sequestration allowed the intimidation of witnesses and jurors to occur without impediment. The point isn't whether Chauvin wouldn't have been convicted of all 3 charges if the trial had been moved to Duluth and the jury sequestrated, maybe the outcome would been the same. BUT - the notion that Chauvin got the fairest and most impartial trial he could have is wrong - he didn't. In our justice system, the ends do not justify the means.

And this trial sends an awful message to those who desire mob rule: all we have to do is raise hell and threaten to do more if we don't get our way, not just in a courtroom but in politics and just about everywhere else. Are we a nation of laws or not? And I lay the blame for allowing the intimidation to continue unabated squarely on the democrats for not maintaining law and order in their cities; we are moving in the direction of totalitarianism, a step at a time. And we are moving fast too.

He didn't have a fair trial, the jurors were unfairly pressured.

He still might have been "guilty", but the court case didn't prove it. They certainly didn't prove any motive here.

Moron. If the robber knew that I had a safe and other shit I would give it all and not fight him to protect my family. The feral animals knew what the maximum conviction could have been as the news media reported that constantly.
And they would have been happy with ANY conviction.

And since you have a different opinion, let's turn to the historical record.


The white former police officer who shot and killed her unarmed black neighbor in his own apartment was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison

Amber Guyger, 31, could have faced up to 99 years in the 2018 slaying of Botham Jean, a 26-year-old St. Lucia native, church singer and accountant whose death drew protesters to Dallas streets.

Under Texas law, the 12-member jury that convicted Guyger was tasked with determining her punishment.
... they chose a punishment on the lower end of the five to 99 years allowed for murder.


And what happened when the lower punishment, instead of the maximum was reached by the jury?

Late Wednesday, roughly 200 demonstrators gathered on the courthouse steps and denounced Guyger’s 10-year sentence.

“We need to continue to seek reform of the police department,” he said to shouts and applause. “We are not broken. We are not deterred.”


Notice there were no riots in the streets over the sentence.

sure, but we know that her views on the evidence has been tainted

Sure, but we now know her view on the evidence and what she heard was tainted by her fear of more violence by the left if she didn't see it their way.

There were times last summer when I felt the same. You can look at it that way, or that a great many people were demanding justice in a very obvious case from a system that had failed to give them justice many times before. Same scenario, different perspective.

You're going to have to do better than sourcing fake news to back your argument.
