    What is the point of Chauvin taking off his mask? is it that he want the jurors to see his facial expressions during closing arguments? Whatever, the case…Prosecution has proven their case. Point…Blank…Period!!

    • Try watching something other than MSM.
      Your being brainwashed.

    • @Aaron I would be brainwashed, listening to you! Try using your head for more than just a cap!

  2. Remember, the lawyer is doing his duty. If he didn’t say these things, the perpetrator could claim mistrial.

      I don’t have to like him, or his slimy way of blaming the dead guy, the bystanders, exhaust fumes, anything and anyone but Chauvin and his knee. I’m beginning to think I could be blamed. It’s all about perception, right? Would you agree?

    • Christopher Klosek | April 19, 2021 at 4:55 PM | Reply

      @Kayano Reeves why do you think private defenders get their clients off more often than public appointed defenders? It’s all about the quality of the lawyer you choose and how they paint the scene and details

    • Peter Ritchie | April 19, 2021 at 5:01 PM | Reply

      @Kayano Reeves You are right. you don’t have to like him. You don’t have to like his efforts to deflect responsibility.

    • The “perp” can’t claim a mistrial. Only the Judge can do that.

    • Ralph Calhoun | April 19, 2021 at 6:22 PM | Reply

      @Reason the “LAWYER” can MOTION for a mistrial…up to the judge to uphold it or not.

    Simple. Let him have someone stand on his neck for nine minutes. Him being drug free should be able to survive

    • Caleb Mahoney | April 19, 2021 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      @JJ Walter I’m not on either side here but you’re wrong. Floyd was in distress before the knee on neck happened. It’s all over in the testimonies, both news wings even report it, that Floyd was already saying he couldn’t breathe while in the cop car. That would mean he was under distress, as you put it, prior to the knee being involved.

    • Yeah…bc I’m sure the fentanyl and meth had nothing to do with it. Then again..I dont expect yall to know anything about toxicology. Yet somehow you’ll swear you know what happened. Science doesnt lie ignants. No matter how misinformed you may be. It doesnt change the truth.

    That kind of argument only works on Republicans.

    “All the experts are wrong.” That pretty much sums up Republicans throughout the pandemic.

    • Tommy Devine | April 19, 2021 at 4:45 PM | Reply

      It’s fascinating how all these people pretending that Floyd’s death wasn’t a homicide are all the same people talking about how the pandemic is all a hoax /s

      If a fact opposed your worldview, it’s not that your worldview is illogical, rather that it’s “fake news” or the “mainstream media bias” or whatever BS they claim to make their snowflake minds less susceptible to criticism and reality smh…

      @Tommy Devine It is the engine of Trumpism -the most corrosive and damaging force to EVER strike this country…

    • Politically biased people NBC Universal refers to as “experts” supporting sick extremist ideology’s are always right!

    • Tommy Devine | April 19, 2021 at 5:44 PM | Reply

      @Johnathan Davis true. I don’t even like to refer to it as “Trumpism” because that gives him too much credit. He really just effectively exploited the worst aspects and fears of the worst people in this country for personal notoriety and adoration. It’s just intellectually bankrupt fascism to me (then again, I can’t actively think of an example of fascism that wasn’t at least somewhat intellectually bankrupt as only that level of thinking would be able to manifest something as illogical as fascism in the first place)…

    The drugs never mattered if Chauvin killed George Floyd before he could be served due process as per constitutional right.

  8. Place your bets. I’m betting. HUNG JURY.

    Justice will not be served until whose who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.

    • Justice will never be served – no way this guy is getting a fair trial – and then the judge today saying dopey Maxine waters riot-inciting comments may result in the verdict being overturned – oh hid that would be awesome

  10. Europeans be like, “what is this trial even about? Either what this cop did was legal or not. It is in the regulations.” This case would be an open-and-shut case in every civilised nation.

  11. I cant breathe!!

    ” George floyd didnt die because his heart was too big…..he died because dereck chauvin’s heart was too small”……..closing argument for the win!!!!

    • @CasinoVa Beach On the contrary. It is not your place to determine guilt or innocence. Nor to make any other determination of the victim’s state before or during the incident. Your statement and your comment stream asserts your dangerous assumption that it could only happen to this man but tread lightly because if it could happen to him, it could happen to you.

      Regardless, the officer accused of the heinous act did not have the right to be judge, jury and determiner of punishment. That is not his/her job, not their place. The officer is guilty of the ultimate crime against man and it seems you are guilty of the ultimate crime against humanity.

      @Em Andem he was a career criminal and the police were there because they were called there based on a crime he committed. I repeat- G dies because he was brainless. If that’s who you exalt then you are not a friend.

    • Caleb Mahoney | April 19, 2021 at 8:06 PM | Reply

      @Em Andem you start your comment against @casinoVa Beach, by telling him it is not his place to determine guilt or innocence. Yet you finish your comment by saying that chauvin is guilty and that CasinoVa is guilty. You realize how hypocritical that is? Thanks for the ignorance. Cheers.

    Lyonal Hutz wants his act back.

  14. Now they want to call a mistrial because everyone and their brother knows about it? Wth… Any high profile case is in the same situation

    • They’ll get a mistrial because of Maxine Waters threatening violence against the jury.

    • @slobnoxious that is not what she said. I wish she had kept quiet but she meant you have to continue with this struggle. Any decent human being that watched knows what happened. Please people demonstrate but do not play into their hands.Thousands of people sitting silently will take away their accusations of ” burning cities”

    A Tribute in Memory of Mr. George Floyd

    Don’t close the door please let the light shine in.
    Whispering sounds that echo off the walls.
    Straps laced too tightly no room for me to move.
    A blinding glance confuses me.

    Words can’t express the pain of false bravado.
    Piercing stares from the tormented few.
    All sides suffering
    Can’t take this life no more.
    Nothing to chance for a man to break free.

    I only need one eye to be open.
    One ear to listen to what I’m trying to say.
    Just take a moment to come inside and stand with me.
    Everyday’s a nightmare
    I need someone to come save me.

    As I lay distressed pleading please help me mama.
    I see no beacon my life’s growing dim.
    Robbed of tomorrow can’t help those who were chosen.
    It’s up to you where we go from here.

    If I could rise I’d speak up for my freedom with every breath I take that God has given me.
    Come take a chance and take a stand in harmony.
    There will be no tomorrow if we don’t unite to be free.

    The violence that follows will only fuel their hate.
    Take the path that carries your voice of change.
    Let’s lay to rest and and put an end to this shame.
    Be the hope your children need you to be.

    If I could rise I’d speak up for my freedom with every breath I take that God has given me.
    Come take a chance and take a stand in harmony.
    Everyday’s a nightmare I need someone to come stand for me.

    There will be no tomorrow if we don’t unite to be free.

    Rest in Peace Mr. George Floyd

  16. Were the defense’s closing arguments longer than the presentation of their case?

  17. Nelson, Nelson, Nelson…money, fame, lies, and no backbone can eat you up alive… Did you know that? Yeah, that’s a side effect of those 4 things.

  18. Gonna be a mistrial.

    Thanks to the amazing representative from California.

    I know everyone deserves a competent defense when they are on trial but I just wonder how this lawyer can look at himself in the mirror every morning.

  20. The video on YouTube already circulated around the world. Millions of people saw the knee on the neck of the victim. A wrong verdict will certainly put America to shame.
