If The Chauvin Verdict Was
Based On Fear Of Riots

Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty Tuesday of all counts against him in the death of George Floyd. It’s possible that the jurors believed that the evidence showed he is truly guilty of a pair of murder charges and one count of manslaughter. But what if they convicted him simply to avoid riots? Unless the jurors agree to talk about their deliberations and share their inner thoughts, we’ll never know if they surrendered to the mob and convicted a man whose guilt they had doubts about.

Juror trials have become a waste of time - just ask the black lynch mob what they want and cut straight to the hanging...

It was a "show trial"... Voting will never fix what America has become and is becoming. If you think American's are brave enough to actually fight this, look at all of those brave Americans with their protective "masks" on. So fearful of a a virus that is 99.8% survivable. Americans failed the "courage test" a year ago and the powers that be KNOW it! Shameful cowards,

Of course the fear of riots biased the jurors. The trial should have been moved. It was impossible for Derek Chauvin to get a fair trial anywhere near Minneapolis.

As Severus Snape would say - "obviously." The entire police force of Minneapolis should leave and show the citizens what life is really like without any law enforcement. The upcoming riots will occur when the sentencing is not the maximum 40 years awarded just for doing one's job. Floyd was foaming at the mouth and resisting arrest before Chauvin reached the scene. Chauvin wishes now he would have let the animal go and potentially harm others on his way home.

I don't believe a juror would ever tell the truth about their decision. Pig head on their porch, pig blood on their door and all that. They are waiting for the book deals. I did not watch tv last night, have seen some news reported this morning on HLN and I am sickened. Especially when I saw a sign last night that said something like 'this isn't over.'

A two week trial and the jury reached their verdict in about 10 hours and that time includes a lunch and dinner break. No, they already had their minds made up. And if I hear one more talking head, such as Rob Finnery on Newsmax, describe Chauvin as a "bad apple" I will scream. Chauvin was not a bad apple. Did he mess up that day, perhaps, but he did not have a record of abuse or anything to even remotely describe him as a "bad apple?" No. I heard no evidence that Chauvin woke up that day with the intent of going out and killing a black man. Not that day or any days prior. There is no justice in this country, well, there is if you are a career criminal and drug user and black and you die because you're all hooped up on fentanyl and grossly overweight and a history of health issues and you die while in police custody because you wouldn't cooperate or you're a Democrat. Then your family and the mobs will ensure that you are now worth tens of millions after your worthless life is over. Mob justice indeed.

So who will cops arrest from now on? White housewives who are innocent but wont fight? White middle aged men who will obey their instructions but didnt commit any crimes? Or will they just hang out at the station waiting for retirement? I saw something like this once. We were having a function at the base chapel, and the cops brought their drug dog by and walked him through the parking lot sniffing cars. A guy in our group explained why. They had to document dog activity for the day, it was near shift change and they knew they wouldn't find any drugs there.

Fear of riots affected the decision of the CJ of the US. Why not ordinary jurors. I would go one step further - fear of personal violence or worse. What if BLM shows up at your door to burn your house down and the cops stand aside? Welcome to 0bama/Biden's Amerika!

None of this will end until Governors stop pussy-footing around and use force, real force, to put down these riots, quell these mobs and restore order, and if that means some MSM people get hurt in the process, it wouldn't hurt my feelings because they're culpable, too. DeSantis and one or two others have a grip on reality and are headed in the right direction. And to all those out there who might offer that violence is never a solution, please allow me to say, oh, yes it is. It all comes down to intent. Tell the people of an occupied Europe in 1941 that violence isn't a solution. The solution came on the beaches of Normandy and in North Africa and Stalingrad and Kursk and Anzio and Sicily and it didn't end until Berlin was a smoldering pile of rubble. That's what it took because the weaklings of THAT era did not stand up to the threat and, by so doing, invited extreme violence, and darkness descended. Who's going to come to OUR rescue when darkness descends? Nobody, that's who.

Having now read all of the comments I wish to add another based on #8’s observance of a sign which read, “This isn’t over”. My husband thinks that Maxine and her thugs in every black community in the country will now say that 2nd degree murder is not enough and Chauvin needs to be tried for 1st degree murder. They will keep rioting until they get their way, double jeopardy be damned. The only way this ends is for the police to stay out of black neighborhoods entirely and let them suffer the consequences of their own actions. I’m with #7. The police in Minneapolis should walk out in masse and move to red states where they will be welcomed and respected.

Not only was the jury and Judge intimidated by the fear of riots and direct retribution, but I believe the defense lawyer was too. Stood by without an objection as his client was convicted of three MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE crimes for ONE action on ONE person.

Fear of riots and (more likely) fear of being doxxed by the media. Media activists (formerly called journalists) had already openly hinted that if the jury found him not guilty that their names and addresses would be revealed. The jury had no choice in the verdict.

If one listened to the judge as he asked each juror if they agreed with the three guilty verdicts, there was one juror who said no. So it was not a unanimous guilty verdict on all three charges.

No, the jury feared getting their homes and vehicles destroyed, same for any businesses they owned or worked in, their familes attacked, and for their own lives. Just a fair trial ? NOT. It should have been held in a different location and the jury sequestered. Move it to Alaska. If the defendant was found guilty, then fine, but serve JUSTICE.

In a sane world, this is easily sorted out(the rioting). 1. Local authorities warn that there is a curfew and any and everyone violating it will be arrested 2. anyone seen committing violence against other persons or property will be arrested regardless of the time of day. 3. because of gender confusion, there will be no attempt to sort arrestees by gender. All will be housed in the same conditions as illegal border crossers. If it's good enough for them.... water, sandwiches and space blankets will be provided, as well as empty 5gal buckets. 4. bail processing will be done in an orderly manner as judges and courtroom become available and arrestees can be positively identified and arrest histories ascertained. 5. Any persons Identified but not arrested at the scene will be pursued by federal agents and returned to the local districts for incarceration to await arrest and bail hearings. Or all penalties for crimes committed within the defined area will be made null and void . Line up the meat wagons...

The COVID-19 pandemic has been terrible for the nation. But it has been very, very good to President Joe Biden. It won him the presidency. It opened the door to massive liberal spending plans. It is propping up his approval ratings. No wonder he continues to play up the risks, and why he’s never going to claim victory … until it serves his political purposes.

How did this happen? How did the nation go in an instant from disbelieving every utterance of Donald Trump to robotically repeating — and acting on — every claim that falls out of Joe Biden’s mouth, no matter how disconnected from the truth? The most glaring example involves Biden’s fact-challenged tirade against Georgia’s new voting law. At his first and only press conference, Biden declared the state’s efforts to protect against voter fraud were worse than Jim Crow, “un-American,” “sick,” and “despicable.” (This was the same press conference where moments later Biden bragged about how much time he’s spent with China’s genocidal communist dictator before calling him “a smart, smart guy.”)

In an interview with Bloomberg last week, Regan talked about imposing rules that meet “the urgency of the climate crisis,” and “did not rule out future emissions requirements that create a de facto ban on new conventional, gasoline-powered automobiles, like an explicit phase-out ordered by California Gov. Gavin Newsom.” Regan could, for example, require automakers to sell cars that

Why Wind and Solar Energy Are Doomed to Failure 44 replies

Wind and solar energy are both essentially obsolete technologies.

Nevertheless, liberals have concocted fantasies whereby all of our electricity, or perhaps our entire economy, will be powered by those fickle sources. There are a number of reasons why this will never happen, but a paper published last week by Center of the American Experiment argues that land use constraints are the most basic reason why wind and solar are inexorably destined to fail.

April Ryan, a reporter with theGrio, made the argument—a common one among police critics—on Friday’s edition of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher. The show’s panel was discussing in part the recent police-involved shooting of 16-year-old Ohio resident Ma’Khia Bryant, who was attempting to stab several other teenagers with a large butcher knife when a responding officer shot and killed her.
