    Are cops implying that when they are doing this kind of despicable behavior, they should be left to keep doing it?

    Very very biased coverage… the reality on cross examination is not being covered…

    Anything that’s not favorable to George…. the media hides.

    Opinions, bring on forensics and toxicology. End game for this trial.
    Wonder if his boss that through Chauvin under the bus will have to rehire him or pay, pain and suffering and/or defamation law suit? Awkward

  7. All trending news on YouTube, is bias towards Georgie.

    Watching this trial in its entirety. Meaning the defense aswell. Reasonable doubt has been established. Cop will walk.

      When was reasonable doubt established?

    • austin clark | April 6, 2021 at 11:12 PM | Reply

      @mehe4Justice the minute they testified that derek had his knee on his shoulder blades NOT neck. When they pointed out the hold WAS policy in the police handbook. Then when testimony came out about fatal levels of drugs in his system. Finally when the girlfriend testified that the “friend” with floyd was his dealer and the “friend” claimed he wasnt going to testify or would plead the fifth because he is afraid of incriminating himself that would lead to charges of murder. All of those things are reasonable doubt. You would be lying to yourself to say otherwise.

    Question about Chauvin was distracted by by-standers is none. Why? Chauvin ignore everything around him, their request to check the condition of the victim. He seems to be at peace with himself to do what he determined to do. It is for someone to do this to any human being. All what he learnt from his job went out the door. He determined to kill the guy. Being in the Police force I thought he is the most seniority officer make the right thing for the rest to learn and follow.

    If you don’t feel safe or easily distracted when a crowd watching you do your job then you should have never been a cop

  14. A law should be created on acts of suffocation in the population. As: “Every institution either in its formation, policy, instruction or training either by means of some mechanical instrument, manual, article, coercion, either by taking advantage of its power over citizens, ignorance of these or trust in the institution, those involved in execution and higher charges will be sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of reevaluation”.
