  1. I love knowing he’s in a little concrete cage and is going to be for years to come. I love that for him.

    1. @Rabble Wolf NAME 1 OF THESE NATIONAL NEWS STORIES WHERE THE BLACK PERSON DIDN’T BREAK THE LAW THEN RESIST ARREST.

    2. Why are you all responding to someone with the name reggin floyd? Isn’t it obvious from his backwards spelt name what he’s trying to say? He’s a hater – leave him in his murk.

  2. Go ahead and appeal. It will be the same thing all over again: expert witnesses, a damning video of the murder as it happened and a horrified jury that throws the book at Chauvin.

    1. No, the appeal will be made to a three judge panel. The appellate judges don’t care anything about the guilt or innocence of the defendant. They are concerned whether or not the trial court made any serious reversible errors during the trial. I believe there were some reversible errors. The big issue is going to be the statement made by Maxine Waters. Even the trial court judge commented on the outrageous nature of her comments. Most troubling is the fact that her comments were made before the jury was sequestered.
      What could very well happen is the appellate court rule that the jury was tainted and we will let the conviction be nullified and sent back to the lower court for a re-trial. This will likely take a great length of time. Witnesses move, witnesses become involved in accidents, get sick or pass away. Critical evidence is misplaced or disappears. None of this is easy and the new trial is going to be extremely problematic.

    2. @T. R. Campbell Should there be a retrial, another change that can hopefully occur is not televising it, like some other courts do, so witnesses would be more focused on giving out their credible testimony, not flaunting their egos…

    3. @Stefan Unson I think televising the trial gives people a very good example of the trial process. Having been cold as an expert witness in the past I can tell you that the last thing on my mind is television. While I did prep myself before entering the quart room I was confident my hair was in place, my make up was good in my clothing was appropriate. My main focus was on giving good solid scholarly and truthful testimony. My focus was on the questions that I was being asked by both attorneys. Television never crossed my mind. I think that is probably the same for many witnesses.

    4. I mean, jury didn’t seem to look at the facts. They convicted him of 3rd degree murder which doesn’t apply here.

  3. Interesting how Chauvin’s eyes displayed concern while the verdict was being read, but only showed stark indifference while he snuffed
    the life from another human being. @rychybiz

    1. I’m pretty sure he knew he was going to be found guilty..he had to know they couldn’t have deliberated and voted to acquit him that quickly. I’m sure when they got word that the jury had a verdict his Lawyer probably told him it’s probably a guilty verdict but we can appeal it .
      I hope to God he doesn’t end up getting off if he appeals

    2. He didn’t “snuff” the life fr anyone. George died from overdosing on fentanyl and he was careless and negligent and POSSIBLY displayed a depraved mind for the victim. He should have only gotten Manslaughter 2 and POSSIBLY Murder 3 if we could even know for sure that he displayed a depraved mental state or depraved heart BUT we CAN’T with the evidence we had.

    1. He can be only charged for one count not 3 counts.

      They are gonna time together.
      Probably 12 yes
      Out in 5yrs

  4. He didnt say I’m sorry or anything,,Oh well Bubba be waiting for him in jail . This qualify immunity sucks .

    1. Bubba? I don’t think so. He’ll be in protective custody, and well looked after. Who do you think run the prisons?

  5. Chauvin looks like well America you only got me for one murder ; I have committed MANY… Kudos America is his facial expression you finally caught me..

  6. Appeal what?? He got off lightly and thinks he should appeal his sentence??!!! WTF does he want, the prison guards help with escaping from his new home?!?!?!???!!!!!

  7. Who remembers that Chauvin’s attorney originally went to the DOJ and tried to get a 3rd degree Manslaughter plea deal… but Bill Barr turned him down bc he didnt want to be seen as too lenient on Chauvin…

  8. You guys are acting like he’s not getting 12 and a half years MAX from this. That’s all they can get him for

  9. THE JURORS WERE AFRAID THAT LEBRON JAMES WOULD TWEET THEIR PICTURES OUT IF THEY DIDNT VOTE THEIR WAY !!!!!
