    It doesn’t matter what the public wants, every person deserves a fair and impartial trial.

  2. It’s not surprising and normal in murder charges

    Get your peaceful protest hats on! Its gonna be a riot!

  4. The more interesting thing that happened today was the Pulmonologist on the witness stand that lied about testing hemoglobin saturation

  5. A defendant rarely takes the stand in any trial, this isn’t something new or shocking.

    • @Rundvelt Floyd told Chauvin, “I can’t breathe”. Chauvin knowing this kept his knee on his neck, intentionally. With that knowledge AND ignoring Floyd entirely, seems intentional to me. I believe you’re generalizing a lot of things to excuse Chauvin’s behaviour.

      “Apprehended can mean a ton of different things” — let’s narrow it down. Unarmed, prone on the floor, and in cuffs. When does that require any additional force?

    • @Kindachi actually the use of force expert said that chauvin used less force then what was needed. He could have used a taser if he wanted to. Not to mention that a medical examiner implyed that carbon monoxide may have played a role in floyds death. Manslaughter might be on the table. murder is out.

    • @Cameron L At what point was it less force, before or after he was on the floor?

      @Kindachi 6’7” imposing large male under the influence of drugs and non-compliant, with a lengthy Criminal record

    • @a_room_without_a_view 4 “trained” officers with tazers and guns. Chauvin with 18 previous complaints, 2 of which were closed with discipline. 1 should be enough for termination.

    I’ts generally bad for the defendant to take the stand but especially bad in a trial like this that is embroiled in mob mentality. Chauvin regardless of trial outcome is going to have to go into hiding or have a new face made for him.

    the peaceful protesters are coming out of their caves

    If he is found not guilty, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that courthouse.

    Innocent or not his life will always be in danger

    • Id move to Montana were I him.

      @LucVNO He Was Bold Enough To Perform The Act Then He Needs To Be Bold Enough To Stand In It! And Whatever The Consequences Are So Be It! There’s Absolutely No Need In Him Running Over To Another State! I’m Sure Those Folks Don’t Want No Trouble 👿 Are Bad Energy In Their City 🌃 He’s Bad News 📰

    Imagine smirking

  11. Maybe he should have testify to clear up some issues, but then again maybe not, a little hard to over look he`s stair into the camera when his knees were on Floyd.

  12. They both have agreed…5th amendment.

  13. If he’s found not guilty and you live in Minnesota, then get the hell out of there. There’s gonna be some peaceful protests that you do not want to be near.

    That is His RIGHT. Period

  15. Say hello to prison!!!

  16. mineismichael | April 15, 2021 at 9:49 PM | Reply

    He seems pretty happy about it.

  17. Larry Paratestes | April 15, 2021 at 10:07 PM | Reply

    Have you seen Harry Paratestes?

  18. Noticed in the body cam footage George complains about being not been able breath way before he was even on the ground. Can any explain why that was?

  19. Stephanie Austin | April 15, 2021 at 10:18 PM | Reply

    May he never see the light of day outside of a jail cell, ever again.

  20. He should learn from Kim Potter to own up to his mistakes. Just an advice.
