    I personally will accept the verdict I’m conditioned. But I’m telling u if he’s found not guilty the people are not going to accept it.

    • @Liberal Dumbfuck Did you know: the police are supposed to apprehend criminals, and not simply murder people who have been accused of a crime? 😂 How’s that boot taste, brother?

      @Jason Boyce been soft on criminals for too long. I say execute them on the spot and watch crime disappear.

    • @Curtis Smith Please. “you don’t need to vote for me but support me when i got elected”. Joe got 80,000,000 votes that the most in American history and yet he can’t even put one sentence together and half of the time he doesn’t know where he is. C’mon man! He is an embarrassment for country!

      @hoang ha after all that that’s the best diss you got for Biden.. LMFAO 😂😆😆 dude trump lied about Everything that’s why the people voted like that.. he was creating division like No Other president in History.. what he lied about let me count the ways 😂😆😆: opportunity zones don’t benefit minorities it’s a tax break for the rich whom have capital gains tax, first step act was created by Dems and was passed in the house and Trump took credit for it smh, the economy he inherited was created by the American Jobs Act in which created new jobs and saved the auto which diversity and inclusion was pushed and was given more money to corporations whom hired people of color.. Trump had nothing to do with any of that… mostly more tax cuts for corps and business. He literally didn’t help in office at all but create drama and allowed a pandemic to hit because he didn’t want to listen to anyone including people of science..May I ask what did you personally benefit from Trump I will wait bc I’m curious to know?

    • No body got mad when oj was give second chance

    I really hope that it will be peaceful if justice is not served.. We pray that it is, we really do because he murdered GF and he needs to be held accountable for it.. My stomach is in knots..

    • It’s crazy that something so obvious is even a question at all.

    • Cole Younger | April 20, 2021 at 1:08 PM | Reply

      I hope you know that if Chauvin is convicted, Maxine Waters has already furnished the defence with the means to over turn the verdict. Even if he is convicted, it’s not going to stick.

    • @YouPeopleAreTheProblem StopPlayingTheVictim there are police protocols that have to be followed. You don’t get to murder someone because they gave you a hard time. Also this is the 10,000th time y’all have basically said the victim basically killed themselves and you call us crazy

    • Maryama Ahmed | April 20, 2021 at 1:14 PM | Reply

      @YouPeopleAreTheProblem StopPlayingTheVictim you said, “he was gonna die anyways” like you’re proving a point. Everyone dies thanks for reminding us! White guilt at it again 😂

    • @YouPeopleAreTheProblem StopPlayingTheVictim haha guilty on all counts dip s***. What you got to say now? Just so you can understand, just because you have a piece of metal on your shirt, doesn’t mean you can do whatever you want to just because of a little resistance. I know you have to put a man’s life so low just to make this justified but it doesn’t matter. That’s not how it works. only always seems to come up when there’s a black body. no more

    Where was the brace for trouble on January 6? They’ve been braced for trouble in this case since May 25 of last year.

  4. Wow, could have used this on the Jan. 6th!

      @David Hale nobody believes you won. Nobody thought you got cheated. Nobody thought January 6th would be important. Except you and Trump who planned a coup. Just you.

    • Alfred Basurto | April 20, 2021 at 3:51 PM | Reply

      @David Hale I don’t think so. We all saw on video the murder. I’m not encouraging anything. You had no election reasons to riot. They witnessed a murder though. live.

    • Alfred Basurto | April 20, 2021 at 3:52 PM | Reply

      @David Hale you are not them. You did it for no reason. They might do it because there might be no justice. EVERYONE witnessed a murder together. We are not the same. Until you produce evidence on video of Trump’s victory like George Floyd’s obvious murder.

    • Alfred Basurto | April 20, 2021 at 3:53 PM | Reply

      @David Hale produce video evidence the whole world saw Trump getting cheated. George Floyd is on video.

    • The protesters were screaming obscenities and kicking down the fence and the Capitol police OPENED the gates. As long as the hired rioters paid to instigate violence are ignored it is a Beautiful movement. And I think the people are doing a tremendous job demonstrating that they can remain peaceful without police escort, it IS the police brutality that they are trying to change, WHY would they want them to assist?

  5. Hilarious, and a dam short story video title.

    The world is watching this trial because George Floyd’s death was committed in the sight of the whole world.

      I have my Mossberg 930 SPX Tactical semi auto shotgun at the ready.

    • @jerome dupree I’ve got two Mossberg 930 locked and loaded. One with double-ought buckshot the other with sabot rounds and a rifled barrel. Not to mention 19 other guns ready to go. Lock and Load bro.

      @Vanessa Starr – let the uninformed and stubborn be. You can’t fix it. It was clearly explained that GF’s O2 level was due to artificial respiration-after it was way too late. Hopefully, there will be reform with policing in the US. Murder is never acceptable.

    They’re preparing for a uproar because they expect him to get off.

    • And if he doesn’t get off you think this will stop. Please to much money and control in the racism scam.

    • @Timotiyos Mattithyahu then take the win and go home.
      If there’s riots after this then you people never were looking for justice. Just cowards looting for nothing. So we’ll see how the cowards act tonight

      @David Hale They won’t. Because Tucker Carlson is going out in his ninja costume to throw a rock through a window, film it and put it on his segment, play it over and over again… Then his moronic followers will rush to the interwebs to claim we’re having “aNoThEr sUmMeR oF EnTiRE CiTiEs bUrNiNg” LMAO They’re fools who won’t quit.

    It’s funny how everyone really expect him to go free. It’s like noone is even thinking about if he is found guilty smh

    Let’s see the Police us the same patience and understanding that was demonstrated on January 6th…

      Re-read my previous comments (I can post them again if you’d like – you know, since you purposely ignore the parts you don’t like an keep pushing your propaganda BS…)

      Give it a rest, you half-wit! LMAO You’re a fruit loop who’s coup coup for cocoa puffs. You literally are having an America Dream aka paranoid schizophrenia… GIVE IT A REST!

    • @Adam Smith is it 2nd or 3rd hand knowledge if there’s video footage of the entire thing? Floyd was unarmed, handcuffed, and restrained on the ground. The law enforcement training experts testified that his restraining technique was inappropriate and resulted in his death. The medical expert witnesses corroborated that fact. This was about as clear a case as you can get, which explains why the jury only deliberated for 11 hours. Case closed. Chauvin’s a murder. George Floyd’s criminal record is irrelevant.

    • @Adam Smith that’s a lie, you lost Racist, so you can keep that BS to yourself. Be great full chauvin gets what killer’s deserve, including folk just like you. You remind me of senator Jim Jordan, with his Racist azz, what about king.

    • @reverb508 no it is not irrelevant. I agree, if Chauvin used a in proper technique that resulted in injury or death, he should be dealt with accordingly. What I am saying or at least asking, was there decisions that day that George Floyd made that could have completely avoided having an interaction with the Police. What was he doing that he needed to be detained, I did not see that part? Seriously, I am not being a jerk, I am 100 percent agree Law Enforcement needs help. If someone does wrong and inflicts damage unnecessarily, then they should pay. But I do not believe burning businesses and destroying cities does any good either. There are ways to allow neighborhoods to prosper and be healthy, where the relationship between the Police and the neighborhood is a good one

    • @Adam Smith George Floyd tried to use a counterfeit $20 bill at a store and resisted arrest when confronted by the police. He deserved to be arrested and he deserved to be restrained. He did not deserve to have an officers knee on his neck for 9 minutes as he slowly died of asphyxiation as onlookers watched and shouted at the officer to stop. Have you watched the video?

  11. I have witnessed another whole deminsion! Crown me king? Only asking! There’s nothing more right than asking!

  12. And I yelled that as I glanced intensively back at the place one calls Earth!

    It’s crazy how the national guard and local police are armed and ready here but ignored warnings days and weeks ahead of the capitol attacks 🤔🤔🤔

    • B.L. Simpson | April 20, 2021 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      @Glam Doll the word is sanctimonious, there’s no “ly” but thanks for the attempt at correcting my grammar when people’s lives are at hand. I mean we all have our priorities…

    • Yeah. Wonder why. 🍊45 + white supremacist. 🇺🇸

    • @B.L. Simpson poor thing…. adjectives vs. adverbs can be hard. And only criminals who put themselves in situations which require police interaction need worry if their lives are in danger. But then again, if ur a criminal, ur chances of being killed by your peers is far greater so I guess risk assessment abilities are required here….. how are yours?

    • @jerome dupree who was Jeffery Epstein? I mean the law had to atleast look the other way

      @Jimmy B you have serious problems. You should leave this country now and establish your cult in a cold icy place because we Americans are changing and you and your goofy like-minded friends are permanently stuck on stupid.

  15. Feel like this country is collapsing on itself just think of all the deaths involving police in the middle of this

    All this for an unknown threat. But for the known threat on Jan 6th…..crickets

  18. Defendant’s closing arguments was almost as long as it took the jury to reach a verdict. 😳

    Omg thank God! Guilty on all three. On some level I was worried that they jury would be too intimidated to convict on murder 2 but they did. Such. a. relief.
