  1. If it was raining the defense would claim: “The water come to him and drown him.”

      Floyd would have yelled “I can’t swim” before any rain even fell. He’d be yelling “I can’t swim” while sitting safely in the cop car.

      It’s amazing how many hostile comments there are. I have to hope that the same prejudiced mindset isn’t present in the jurors.

  4. The dude on the left tho

    Isn’t it kind of interesting the way it took only one president just one term to give us all permission to act like a classroom full of 4th graders with a rookie teacher? Well now it’s time to straighten up and act civilized again.

    So, rather than screaming like a bunch of brats shooting spitwads at each other — how’s about we start acting like grownup Americans instead of people raised in a barn Huh? You with me? Cool! 😎

  6. …things have changed. most have not realized it and this thathave are doing all they can to stop that change and to keep the status quo.

    Nobody talking about the 7 year old girl killed in Chicago this weekend though. WHY???

    • Christian 153 | April 20, 2021 at 9:26 AM | Reply

      @Margaret Nicol She deserves WAY more coverage than some drugged out career criminal that can’t follow law enforcement orders. Did he deserve to die for it – NO. But where is our priorities???

    • it doesn’t matter if a jogger kills them.

    • @Christian 153 Ok. My condolences

    • “WHY???”
      Because white cops didn’t do it. Therefore, it doesn’t serve the MSM’s agenda of inciting racial hatred — which leads to riots — which leads to big profits for news corporations.

    • Because BLM don’t matter. If they did, the BLM would be camped outside abortion clinics letting people know that 19 million black lives have been taken since 1973.

  8. Anyone notice that Nelson misrepresented the law re burden of proof (lied)?

    We saw him murdered with our own eyes.

  18. Thanks, Rachel! Thanks, Phillip! 💜

  19. “We’ve never had a criminal justice system which treated everybody equally.”
    That’s certainly being demonstrated here! If Floyd had been white, this never would have made it on national news, much less result in _murder_ charges against the cop. It was also demonstrated in OJ Simpson’s trial. If he had been white and not famous, there is no way he would have been acquitted. That should have been a slam-dunk conviction, but you can bet that the jurors were quite aware of the tsunami of riots that would ensue if they did convict him, and were even in fear for their own lives.

    Yep, mob rule makes for a pretty unfair justice system. With the MSM leading the way in inciting racial hatred of police, no cop has a _chance_ of a fair trial from now on. IOW, the pendulum has swung _far_ to the other extreme, now, thanks almost exclusively to highly selective, misrepresentative, and reckless anti-cop coverage by news networks and major newspapers.

  20. brilliantly said, ty both, and the verdict was guilty on all counts!
