Sept 24 (Reuters) - Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has filed notice that he will appeal his conviction and sentence for the murder of George Floyd, arguing that the judge in his case abused his discretion and made multiple errors during the trial.

He should, that judge overstepped, the officer performed according to the training he was given. George Floyd resisted arrest and had a criminal record.

They are not trained to kneel on a restrained perp's neck for nine minutes, but good luck with that.

they most certainly are, if the dumb sob -Floyd could have stood still, followed directions, he would be alive today. Chauvin does not deserve prison for following his training

I don't need to. My brother is a cop.
Police have been told to place a knee on the neck until the suspect stops fighting and is restrained for years...this may have changed since that case but those cops were taught to do that...the judge should not have ignored that fact....and neither should you....every expert and law enforcement personnel that testified spoke of that training in the courtroom...I heard them...so I guess you and your cop brother would say they all lied?....

Not saying that he shouldn't be found guilty but the guy should get a fair trial.

The Left exploited the George Floyd case for political purposes.
The racist Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters fanned the flames of Progressive hate and racism while the jury was still deliberating.
It was a 100% political conviction.
Chauvin's conviction was an injustice.
Floyd died from a drug overdose.
But, the most important factor is that if Floyd had been White we would have never heard about him.
The Yellow Press always racializes and politicizes police incidences when a Black suspect is involved.
America has devolved into being a banana republic.

He was dying of a fentanyl overdose. What Chauvin did wrong was not recognize that death was imminent. That was all he did wrong.
he didn't do anything wrong, the country is slowly giving our worst class of offenders a pass while prosecuting the ones trying to protect us.

Just a safe place to stay until the rioting died down. Now he gets out, with a new identity as a cop somewhere else.

>>>He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
>>>He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

>>>... protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States.<<<
