  1. Thank you both for your superb Proscecution of that sadistic officer. Your respect and justice for George Floyd has touched hearts world-wide. We’ve been following it all from Donegal Ireland.

    1. UK i followed it. They was born like the little girl for this horrendous time history. That because of the heroic little 14 year old enlightened the world. Joined all people worldwide as one during the rise of trump authoritarianism pandemic fascism influence in the world.

    2. they did a great job. i wish erin the white female lawyer was getting some attention as well. she was excellent.

      i have to say while I was often offended by him eric nelson did a really good job on defense. the evidence was just overwhelming against him.

    3. @Hot Takes Tuesday’s
      As the case went on I started feeling sorry for Eric Nelson! He looked worn out from saying such stupid things to protect a man he KNEW was GUILTY’!!!

  2. A good actor becomes a favorite of the crowd for telling a good story, a musician for a good song, a sport star for a good game. A prosecutor becomes a hero for making justice… once in a while.

  3. I guess I should take back all the negative things I’ve said about lawyers in the past. These two men are good humans who upheld the rule of law. Bravo.
