  1. It will soon be a mistrial for sure!! One of the jurors did confess to feeling pressured to choose “guilty” she was afraid of what was gonna happen to her if she said “not guilty”

    1. Mistrial can only happen during trial. He cannot be tried again for same criminal offense. Judge knew the pressure for jurors was there and decided not to call for a mistrial. Verdict stands. Appeal improbable.

    1. @Alex Mark
      Culturally, Racially, politically divided country.
      Justice system is now directed to seak out white hate crimes as a pandemic.
      There’s going to be a breaking point and those in power want that break for more political power.
      Ergo
      Civil War

  2. Suuuure no pressure at all besides knowing that you’d have to move out of the country of you were a juror that didn’t convict

    1. Well, murderers should be found guilty and go to prison. Chauvin murdered an American on camera.

  3. Did Floyd resist arrest? Yes
    Did Floyd have three times a lethal dose of fentanyl in his system? Yes
    Was the holding procedure used on Floyd an accepted holding technique used by law enforcement nationwide? Yes

    Ok, you weren’t bullied by the mob into giving a guilty verdict. Now, explain how you arrived at that opinion…

    1. @TheCasualAssassin Racism has played no part in any of these police altercations. What they all have in common is one thing, and one thing alone. Resisting arrest. That is what ties these cases together. Absolutely nothing has been shown that this had anything to do with racism, but what they do plainly demonstrate is a complete contempt for authority and the rule of law.

  4. The fact he said “we had to come in every day and watch a black man die” proves there were racists on the jury, not a fair trial.

    1. no, that’s not racism… that’s you having a problem with a jurist not being literally, visually blind.
      we’ve ALL seen cops killing black people…
      it has nothing to do with the jurist’s skin color. I could’ve been in that room and said the same thing.

  5. So Brandon might not get doxed now because he is bowing to the mob and trying to save his house and career??

  6. The amount of time we spend believing we can’t is more than enough time to learn how you can

    1. My first invéstment with Mr Mike George gave me the assurance that has made me invest without the fear of losing, I got four of my friends involved with him already

    2. I think the defense made a huge mistake and missed an opportunity in
      this trial. They rested too early. I posted in length what I think on my
      home page video. Please let me know what you think. Thank you

    1. @ultraNate222 yeah but most cops are able to arrest people without murdering them slowly. You cannot just go around casually murdering Americans lol

  7. I think the defense made a huge mistake and missed an opportunity in
    this trial. They rested too early. I posted in length what I think on my
