      …..and so did the prosecuter, works both ways!! This is not “beyond a reasonable doubt” the drugs in his system constitutes that.

  3. Prosecution brought the equivalent of the Super Bowl winning Bucs.
    Defense brought the equivalent of the 2-14 NY Jets!

  4. brilliantly said, ty all.

    Dr. Tobin is the ‘real meal deal’ he spoke with authority and had the facts. My gratitude goes out to all who testified with the conviction of conscience. We have to remember that so many were just wanting to do the right thing and see justice. My heart hurts now that Chauvin may walk. But, there’s an old saying, that goes like this that ‘when you’ve done your best give it to God and he’ll do the rest.’ The Prosecution has done a great job, now we hope the jury will give justice to Mr. George Floyd and his family and us all.

      ..yes by allowing Officer Chauvin to walk away. There is no evidence “beyond a reasonable doubt” here. Everyone is making Chavin the bad guy. When Floyd was a drug addicted criminal….so justice be served both ways.

    • @Giles Bowman Chauvin has a long history of misconduct & is facing 9 counts of felony tax evasion.

      Speak for yourself.
      Floyd wasn’t my kind of ppl

      @Life Is Poetry So, we don’t have to be friends with everyone but we should respect others. No one deserves to die in the street as he did. If you think so, you are not my type of person. I am sure some others would feel the same.

      @Giles Bowman Faulty thinking. If he walks justice will not be served. The world watched him murder a man with his knee. If he walks he’s a marked man for life. He’ll never enjoy life without looking over his shoulders. What goes around comes around. He may end up under someone’s knee for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.

  6. If not for Derek Chauvin’s knee, George Floyd would be alive.

  7. The most important question that the prosecution could have asked to Chauvin is “Killer said what? “

      Me as a Lawyer: I would of said, *Your honor, this man’s rescinding hair line is ridiculous! I’d like to present evidence B. for his bad haircut!*

      Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. This man needs to embrace and admit he is balding and looks ridiculous.

      Your honor I’d like permission to shave this head!

      Judge: I’ll allow it….

    • For the Gold!!! 😂😂😂😂

    I appreciate the discussion but it would be nice to have a couple of sound bites of what he actually said woven in.

  9. According to the defense, George Floyd died of everything but Derek Chauvin’s knee on his neck for nine and a half minutes. Drugs, the “hostile crowd” on the sidewalk, pre-existing health problems, and the fumes from the police car exhaust pipes. Insulting to anyone with intelligence.

    Tobin is a legend.

    It’s ironic that a breathing expert just ended Chauvin’s life as he knows it.

    The Coward didn’t take the stand to explain why he did what He did

    And those crying out on why mr Hall, Floyd’s friend not testifying will now be silenced by Derek not doing so now.

  15. Thanks doc we need good honest people of all colors to make a better country smh

  16. “Dr. Tobin is thoughtful, articulate, Irish.”

  17. What a sad country America has become. 9.5 minutes on a person’s neck, while he was handcuffed. A human being’s life snuffed out by someone who knew what he was doing. A psychopath in uniform.

    Chauvin doesn’t want the jury to witness in person that cold and callous facial expression of his that they witnessed on the video. The camera doesn’t lie.

    I was a jury member on a murder trial a few years ago.
    My god,I was shocked at how dumb at least six of them were,in the end it was a hung jury.
    Don’t be surprised if that happens here.

    I’m a Tobin, maybe family? What an incredibly intelligent and articulate doctor
