Its fucked up that if he doesn't go to jail, more people will die.

Yeah, and the government didnt spy on people...Snowden is a conspiracy theorist.

Listen I get it. Small price to pay to sacrifice a dirty cop.

But lets be real, IF that autopsy was legit, he didnt murder him.

But he should have called for medical workers ASAP if he was overdosing.

Forwyn, This was too big to fail...too much at risk.

He was a dirty cop. Integrity in this case was a small price to pay.

I'm not a EMT, Nurse, Doctor, etc. but I've seen a few in action. I don't recall any of them using a knee to check the breathing or pulse on anyone.

Tom, Either the autopsy was wrong or this guy got sacrificed, cant have it both ways.

But for the greater good, he was a dirty cop anyway.

The defenses own witness supported that the knee and failure to aid were both contributing factors.

These verdicts do not stop the riots only postpone them. Some in the crowd have said this trial is just a stepping stone and they expect more. Others were saying the trial didn't result in a legislative or policy change so it isn't a complete win.
Won't be long before we start seeing demonstrations/riots calling on congress to pass a law defunding the police and these verdicts will be used as proof police should all be defunded.

This whole trial wasn't about Floyd or Chauvin, it was about the politics.

In a time like this many cities need a Police Chief like Frank Rizzo to put the fear of God into the rioters who are champing at the bit to go loot them some more goodies.

I just had a thought of the reversals in my lifetime.
When I was a kid, I lived in Bucks County, between Philly and Trenton. If we wanted any major shopping we had to either go to downtown Philly or Trenton. Now the city people have to travel to the suburbs to do any shopping because all the stores have closed in the cities.

BLM has now proven itself to be the most powerful domestic terrorists organization in our country.

After Maxine Waters threats could there have been any other verdict?

even cops testified against Chauvin, but i guess the GQP just has to be against black people :p
