  1. Way to make a statement I’m glad they didn’t let him off for probation he’s got a lot of time in solitary to think about his actions they should put them in population…
    Look at the bright side at least he not doing this time in Louisiana

  2. Bitcoin will stay as a risky investment as people still believe to sell it at some point to turn fiat. Rather than wait for mass adoption and buy commodities with bitcoin, “Don’t be greedy, hold some, sell some, trade some.
    If Thomaslogan is holding, it will probably go up, technical analysis does not matter when the worlds richest man Pumping in crypto so hard! We’ve only just started since Thomaslogan is fueling the rocket for take of…. Let’s put a shiba on the moon

    1. I do thank him and recommended him for those out there who are confused about trading and forex too should try investing with him. His trading services is working very awesome

    2. Saw Thomaslogan first time in New York City 2019. He teaching towards financial freedom is highly commended.

    3. I made a lot of cash back then in 2017 trading BTC I didn’t trade myself though. I had a trade but when I lost touch with him, I stopped trading but now I see the rapid increases I’m back at it. Still looking for a trader. I’ll try yours thanks

  3. Sham trial by media and mob.
    He will appeal this farce.
    One the bright side GF is drug free and has committed no crime in over a year.

    1. The bright side is that even if chauvin gets out early, most folks wont want him breathing. Because taking the law into your own hands is admirable, right?

    1. The judge specifically said his decision was made on the facts and evidence. Not the emotions of the people. Anyways that human trash can should’ve got life.

    2. Can’t wait for the appeal. He’ll win because of the black juror wearing a blm shirt, jurors were threatened and Maxine Waters words. Hey at least Floyd has been clean and sober for a year now

    3. @Thrashfan sounds like you’ll be waiting forever. Black white brown or blue, excluding race here, we all witnessed a murder in broad daylight and a severe abuse of authority as the judge is quoted. The judges 22.5 page memo kills any possibility of an appeal case turning over the verdict. Maybe you can join chauvin with all the other pieces of human garbage with a one way ticket to Hell.

  4. A police officer is supposed to be something different, a hero and an individual of honor. I’m not going to whisper so my camera or my partners camera / audio don’t catch me saying it, Chauvin you can’t win….

  5. To me it doesn’t make any sense that he said condolences to the floyd family when he caused it
    How he gon act like he have no regrets?

  6. On one side we have the have the hardcore cold hearted trained police Force on the other side we have the mass gatherings of rebellion taking advantage of an opportunity to cause chaos and destruction and grow in Numbers. I have one ? Witch side will do the right thing?

  7. I have an understanding that if you see a drunk driver or a crime you make a call. well one thing missing, they call it a brother hood now, a gang and is considered taboo and betrayal to turn on your fellow member I’m talking about both the gangs of the police Force and the gangs of the criminals. Change is needed. Enough said …
