  1. So is that a reassurrance or a promise or a warning…
    I do not like Chauvin’s eyes. He doesn’t want them to look anything but piercing and hard.
    Mho.

    1. I’d say he looked shocked and scared. That’s better than I’m showing no remorse when he was kneeling on George’s neck.

  2. What he meant was Two Things 1. HE WALKS OUT SOON OR 2. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE OTHER THREE THUGS ( cops ) ARE NEXT

  3. someone’s “ring gear” just got tight.But that’s about to change.We need police,good police.Cull the bad,keep the good.

    1. Couldn’t have said it better myself, it’s because of crooked racist cops like Chauvin that the Police gets a bad rap from the public and the media. I couldn’t agree more that we need to Cull the bad officers and keep the good ones that still swear by their duty to protect their area and serve the people.

    2. There are good police out there and had ones they even have Bad Correctional officers too crooked ones that sneak cellphones into prison and drug’s…

    3. We NEED PEACE OFFICERS .
      NOT DEATH OFFICERS . You see.
      THERE ARE NO GOOD COPS!!
      THE SO CALLED “GOOD COPS” KNOW WHO THE BAD COPS ARE !!
      THUS .. MAKING “THEM” A BAD COP !!!
      FOR YEARS THEY’VE WORKED WITH THEM, COVERED FOR THEM !! LIED FOR THEM !
      THERE ARE NO SERPICO’S LEFT !!

    1. @Austin it was not premeditated like you want it to be. As much as you hate the guy there is no evidence that he planned to end George Floyd’s life. Look up other cases where a fight escalated etc and you will probably find the same. However someone who plans a killing gets more.

    2. @Roscko 562 well then let’s let Manson out too…he NEVER killed anybody! Maybe he can be YOUR next door neighbor!!

  4. So now they need to hold all the other Officers accountable! The sad fact is, No one wins in these situations both sides lose a family member smh….

  5. Chauvin may be referencing the Federal Civil Rights court case where he will receive additional sentencing. There may also be one other. I suspect he will spend the rest of his life or the next 40 years in prison.

  6. “Peace of mind?” Having their loved one back would bring peace of mind. Sounds like some foolishness that will come up during appeals.

    1. Trust me….they want the 24 million more than to have George back. They got paid for having someone take out the trash.

    1. I’m betting he won’t last a year in prison unless they put him in isolation or sent him to one of those vacation prisons.

  7. No other information he was referring to would justify him placing himself in the role of judge and executioner. He failed at the duties he swore to uphold and he deserves his sentence and more.

  8. Wonder what happened to that smug, smirky, grandiose demeanor he displayed when he was choking the life out of a human being?
