Derek Chauvin Murder Trial


The Thriller

Not only is what Rep Waters said a problem because it encouraged potential violence. The bigger issue for me was that she was advocating for a system where the outcome of a trial should be determined by factors and influences that exist outside the courtroom. That is not our system. That is not a system that can function in any way that I would describe as "justice."

If Chauvin had been found innocent the issue I would have had is with the law primarily, but also with the common regard people have for the actions of law enforcement as being inherently justified and the disregard so many still have (and have been expressed in this thread) for the lives of black people.
The mere fact that most of us probably expected a far different ruling just goes to show how out of control our law enforcement is. Who is being protected and served when police routinely abuse and kill the public with little or no any accountability? So little accountability that we’re shocked when they’re held accountable despite having a 10 minute video of the crime!

It wasn't Alabama. It was NY. I was trying to emphasize how racist the US is.
Ironically this is about the 10th time I've seen in this post as Alabama being oh so racist. I've lived all over the world and the states and Alabama is probably one of if not the least racist state currently in existence.

Now Arkansas, that place is crazy racist.

Are the other officers going to trial? Have they been fired at least?

What reforms would you like to see? One thing Id like to see changed is if you’re fired from one force, you cannot be re-hired by another force. The officer who ****ed Lauren McClosky’s case and was fired for showing fellow officers nude photos and lying about it from the U of U police force and found a job in Logan’s force. That shouldn’t happen. If you’ve proven to be a disaster on one force, you shouldn’t be able to be hired for another to further harass and abuse the public. The standards for police work are already embarrassingly low.
Have you read zero about the other officers or only get off to vox and buzz feed?

3. Everyone who has written, tweeted that the kid was unarmed and doesn't explain the 800 millisecond thing.
I suppose some people think you should use more than .842 seconds before deciding to kill someone.

He was running, with a gun in his hand, discreetly got rid of the gun the cops saw in his hand all the while turning around and raising his hands at them.
Except, he didn't raise his hands at them. He raised them up along his sides. Check the video again.

If the cops hesitated then shot, it's murder. 100% This one is tough cause I can't say the cop didn't fear for his life.
I'm sure the cop was afraid. Most of them seem to be.

Excellent take. Because I’m just a tribal *** clown and never criticize my own side.

I shouldn't have worded it that way. Anyways though, to the broader point, Maxine Waters lives in a rich, gated community in a 4.5 million home with armed guards. She is completely out of touch and impervious to the mayhem on the streets she causes rattling off statements like this. This was the common denominator in everyone fanning the fumes this summer from Pelosi to all the A list celebrities and athletes.....rich neighborhood, gated community, personal security. and no need for the police. Well, lets just see how well that works out going forward...LA murders at 322 last year, up 30%. Chicago murders up 50% last year to 750, mostly inner city minority . 437 New York City murders, up 40%. These are giant numbers.

This is what the police said about George Floyd’s death nearly one year ago. Think they omitted a few key details? Gee, why would they do that?

I really don’t care where she lives. I don’t want politicians weighing in on trials. Especially when the case is high profile and the rhetoric used isn’t helpful. What’s ironic is you describing me as tribal. I’m a liberal but I’m critical of my side. Unlike you Trumpers who have your heads so far up his *** you still can’t walk straight.
