Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 4/20/2021 6:11:33 PM

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter on Tuesday in the death of George Floyd. The jury deliberated for four hours on Monday and seven and a half hours on Tuesday before reaching a verdict, according to CNN. It was allowed to consider all three charges against Chauvin and returned a guilty verdict on all three. (Tweet) Chauvin was fired by the Minneapolis Police Department on May 26, 2020, the day after he knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes. Video taken by an onlooker showed the entire


Drugs and overall poor health played a large part in his death. But the jury decided otherwise.

I don't think it was about race, I think it was Chauvin show boating for the new police officers. We'll see when they have their trial.

Evil being done in a political "trial" which was predetermined from the outset, and horribly influenced by political threats of riots and burning.

Interesting that the President and Maxine weighed in on this and yet neither one has said one word about the man who murdered a female veteran who served her country for 12 years on Jan. 6th. At least his name should be out there and he should be tried for murder. Oh, silly me. She was a white Trump supporter. I guess that makes a difference.

It is very sad that the greatest justice system in the world has been so badly corrupted. Chauvin had absolutely no chance at getting a fair trial. As for the result, it would have required that I believed there was any chance at a fair trial for me to have actually paid attention. Lady Justice is crying...the scales are truly tipped depending on who the criminal is and what party they belong to.

The jury was in a no win situation. Chauvin was in a no win situation. Unfortunately, now we all will be forced to listen the race baiters gloat about how racist we all are, how racist the cops are, how we need to reform all police, how this country is racist. Black men will be encouraged to continue to ignore orders from the police because they believe that the law do not apply to them. This will unfortunately perpetuate this cycle of black man is killed by police, riots, looting, trial, and racial unrest. Everyone will then ask why race relations are not getting better and everyone will just split even further apart. People who used to not think about race will now get sick of being called racist and see the worst racial stereotypes being played out on TV, now reinforcing their newly formed opinions. This will just male the professional race hustlers more happy and vocal since it is their job to keep the flames of racial division going. There are too many people with a vested interest in keeping racial tempers flaring to let these issues be resolved by more calm, reasoned people. Race Hustlers and politicians have too much to gain keeping these problems going.

This whole thing was a travesty! The state had dozens of lawyers, the defense had one. The state kept dropping hundreds of pages of documents during the trial, giving the defense no time to review them. The state lied by omission many times. The dead thug (sacred black criminal) admitted that "I ate too many drugs" on video. The governor demanded a guilty verdict, the democrat corrupt politicians demanded a guilty verdict. The MOB demanded a guilty verdict, and the cowardly management of the PD did nothing! What a farce!

Lets call it what is. A black man with no obvious ability to add to the gene pool was taken out. This man was never going to make the world a better place. Human sh** stain comes to mind. Why is anyone on the planet concerned that this man is dead? Am I a racist? No. If he was white I still wouldn't mind that he is dead. Chauvin did his job and is now punished for a loser being dead. That's just wrong.

This will likely be overturned on appeal. It may have to go to the Minnesota Supreme Court, and it may take a couple of years. The jurors were likely afraid - and with good reason - that their homes would be torched if they went where the evidence should have taken them.

Bottom line - had Floyd never passed the phony $20 or encountered the police he would have been dead within the hour anyway. A triple lethal dose of fentanyl and meth added to a long history of heart disease will do that. The police had the misfortune to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Obviously this former police officer deserves to be punished. He didn't intend to kill George Floyd, but through gross negligence he did cause his death which warrants prison time. I find the second degree murder verdict incomprehensible but am fine with the two lesser charges. Unfortunately the Democrats and their street mobs have tainted the verdict. No one will know whether any of the jurors voted the way they did in order to prevent the riots that would have ensued had the jury not voted guilty on all three charges. The Democrat mobs will continue their goal of overturning this country.

Seemed to be a forgone conclusion... Have been searching for info about Derek Chauvin....have not heard that much about his personal life; married, etc?.... The only thing found so far is this Wikipedia info: This is all it has regarding his personal life: ~~~"Personal life -Chauvin's ex-wife, a real estate agent and photographer,[72] is a Hmong refugee from Laos who competed in a "Mrs. Minnesota" beauty pageant in 2018.[73][74] She filed for divorce the day before he was arrested for Floyd's death,[75][69][76] and it was approved in February 2021.[77]" ~~~

Since verdict came down so fast, I thought that obvious it was going to be some form of 'guilty', but intentional murder?!? I think not, unless there was more to their prior nightclub employment relationship that we didn't hear about. So I agree with many above....jurors knew they could wrap it all up in a neat little bow and not have to lose any sleep about that old 'justice' aspect, since it might eventually be overturned on appeal. No muss, no fuss. Time to call it a day.....where'd you park the car, honey?

Over the next three hours, a growing law enforcement group that included a crisis negotiation team and tactical operations experts circled the suspect.

After Abbott announced COVID-19 restrictions would end on March 10, President Joe Biden called the decision a “big mistake” and that it reflected “Neanderthal thinking.” A slew of other political figures thought the decision was premature and a way to distract people from the February winter storm and power outage that killed at least 111 Texans. “It is now time to open Texas 100%,”
